The mighty CANNIBAL CORPSE will once again be returning to Mexico and South America! This time, they’ll be bringing along Metal Blade labelmates THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER as well as fellow underground heavyweights SUICIDE SILENCE to Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador and Venezuela in December. The tour will begin on December 3 in Sao Paulo, Brazil and will wrap up on December 13 in Mexico City, Mexico.
South American fans are notoriously some of the most diehard metal heads in the world and the bands are excited for this tour to get started. CANNIBAL CORPSE vocalist George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher comments: “In every interview, I am asked where the sickest and best death metal fans are and it is hands down South America. I’ve seen kids in the front row bleeding and losing their minds, they are all crazy in the best way possible. It’s hands down my favorite place to play and I can’t wait to come back!”
States THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER vocalist Trevor Strnad, “We are very excited to be a part of this monstrous South American tour. It is always a pleasure to play alongside the almighty CANNIBAL CORPSE… but in South America?! The shows are going to be absolutely insane, without a doubt. To the South American fans: prepare for an unearthly ritual!” THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER guitarist Brian Eschbach adds, “We are extremely excited for another chance to support the almighty CANNIBAL CORPSE!!!
