Death To All, the current live touring iteration of Death is once again returning to the states to pay tribute to the legacy of Chuck Schuldiner on their “Swamp Leper Stamp ’14” tour. Despite the title, the gang will be hammering out hits from the entire Death catalogue. The previous tours have been a huge success (despite financial turmoil with the first DTA run), and the unflushable lineup this time around features Steve Di Giorgio, Bobby Koelble, Sean Reinert and Max Phelps.

Even better, the band announced via Facebook that support for the tour would come from Obituary, Massacre, Rivers of Nihil and Untimely Demise. I’m not super familiar with Untimely Demise, but the OSDM stomp of Obituary and Massacre, combined with the mechanical precision of Rivers of Nihil makes this one tour not to miss. Get dates below. Please note that the last four dates are DTA only.

  • Negrodamus

    November 24th is a Monday, unfortunately. I’ll have to see what time the show starts!

    NegroD = weekday show baby.

    • W.

      I can sometimes swing them if they’re here in Lubbs, but if it’s Amarillo or Midland, fuggedaboutit.

      • Negrodamus

        “Fuggedaboutit” is, like, if you agree with someone, you know, like “Raquel Welch is one great piece of ass. Fuggedaboutit!”

        • W.

          I apologize for my inappropriate word usage.

          • We are from Texas. Language from other parts of the country confuses and scares us.

          • W.

            Have you heard about those weirdos who call water fountains “bubblers?”

          • Negrodamus

            Are you being serious at this exact moment? Lol.

          • W.

            Yes. I think it’s like one state. Maybe Michigan.

          • W.

            Found it. Wisconsin.

          • Stockhausen

            I thought that would have been them dang foreigners.

          • Negrodamus

            DEM DAMN LIBS

          • THEY TERK ERRR GERNS!

          • Cock of Steele

            DEN DERK ER DERBS!

          • Stockhausen

            AND DER GALL FLABBIN PRIUSES!

          • I think people in Maine do as well. I never realized we were the only ones ’til I was in basic training and heard someone else get mercilessly ridiculed for saying “bubbler.” We say a lot of weird shit in Wisconsin…it’s kind of like a mini-Canada here.

          • W.

            Well, all of the mongoloids here in Texas call EVERY soft drink Coke. It’s infuriating. Which Coke would you like, ya dingus?

          • We call it pop. Stupid, but a lot of people do.

          • W.

            My folks are from Michigan/Indiana, and that’s what they call it. I say soda because I grew up in Colorado.

          • I make myself say “soda” just to try (sometimes for naught) to not sound like all the other “Ya, hey?” dingleberries around here.

          • I grew up calling it pop, but I started making myself say soda once I got to college.

          • Owlswald

            Oregon is a soda state also. My wife said pop the other day in the car and I was all like WHAT IS THIS LANGUAGE YOU SPEAK ALIEN WOMAN?

          • SMOHLG

            Whereabouts in Oregon, homey

          • Owlswald

            PDX

          • SMOHLG

            Bone-diggity, Corvallis area for me

          • Owlswald

            Corvallis is where I grew up.

          • SMOHLG

            You go to corvallis H.S?

          • Owlswald

            CVHS.

          • SMOHLG

            Laaaaaame

          • Cock of Steele

            I had a particular malice for people who are always like “No soda pop in here” or just saying “soda pop”

          • W.

            That one’s pretty weird. Just pick one!

          • Detective D.
          • My dad says “ink pen” all the time and it makes me wanna stab him with one.

          • W.

            Are you kidding me?

          • No. He says a lot of stupid shit. Even for Wisconsin.

          • crazytaco_12

            I have a ton of family in Minnesota, it drives me insane any time they ask if I want a “pop”

          • JWG

            Mini-Canada, eh.

            So basically if you were annexed overnight nobody would notice until we changed all the road signs to Kilometers.

            Not that you should be concerned. We’d take Vermont first. And I’m pretty sure they’d come willingly…

          • I’ve served in two different branches of the US military and honestly think Canada is looking pretty good these days. So I probably wouldn’t mind.

            (Srs: US health care is about the best in the world…for Brad Pitt and those with enough money/fame. I’d prefer a system where health care is treated as a basic necessity and everyone receives equal quality.)

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            Oh yea, man living in canada is great, i live in the prairies though so it’s low population, thus the amount of live music is severely cut off. But it’s a trade off, i can stub my toe and go to the doctor. If someone needs a heart transplant, it’s free. I mean what’s more important than your health. I live in a city of 25.000 but we have 2 records.
            Per capita # 1 most crime ridden city in canada.
            #1 most violent crime.

            Yea, everyone says pop here, always have, sometimes to be an asshole i will say cold beverage.

          • Bert Banana

            I think Maine would be pretty willing as well. If I’m not mistaken, there was a town in Minnesota that was desperate to join Canada a few years ago

          • Bert Banana

            Woah, woah…don’t group us with Wisconsin. Then again…the East side is miles different then the Prairies

          • crazytaco_12

            I’ve heard people say this up here in Washington (the state *sighs*)

          • Fart Johnson

            Which is funny because that’s what people in New England call smaller bongs.

          • Bert Banana
          • Negrodamus

            But then, if you disagree, like “A Lincoln is better than a Cadillac? Fuggedaboutit” You know?

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          talk about a nice head of hair, amongst other things. WOW

  • I’ll be at the Austin show. Bummer that Obituary won’t. Oh well. Now I can look forward to 8 terrible opening bands from San Antonio.

    • Negrodamus

      Yeesh, eight?

      Can you time it just right to see the bands you want to see?

      • That’s the plan!

        • Tommy P

          I always love watching locals, but if you’ve noticed from my previous posts, I’m a bit of a local music evangelist. When they suck, I just go outside and have cigars anyways.

          • Bert Banana

            You must smoke a lot…

            …don’t worry, I do too

          • Randall Thor

            Sometimes it’s fun to watch train wrecks happen

          • Bert Banana

            Train wreaks are pretty rare up here unless you go to a local show. When our promoter has to book local acts, it’s normally bands that have a good rep in the city. Toronto’s scene is pretty tight knit…So you would never see like a couple kids who have been jamming in their parents garage for a few months open…say…a suffocation show.

          • Randall Thor

            Oh, the big shows only good the better local acts (usually) unless no one is available. For instance, if a power metal band tours through here, the promoters used to have no idea who to book with them, so it got weird. Now my band fills that void (yay)

    • W.

      If that wasn’t a Wednesday, I would seriously consider driving down to join you.

    • Stockhausen

      The promoter has to make money somehow, and it definitely won’t be from promoting.

  • Tommy P

    See you guys in Charlotte!

  • Guppusmaximus

    Thanksgiving holiday 4 day weekend w/ Death & Obituary?! Fucking Amazeballs!

  • CyberneticOrganism

    Steve DiGiorgio is the shit.

    • Guppusmaximus

      His fretless work on “Individual” still gives me wood:)

      • Cock of Steele

        Human is my particular favorite.

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          OBITUARY AREN’T HEADLINING ?

          • Cock of Steele
          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            Nice find, i will see if i can track it down.

          • Cock of Steele

            I found another one called 2069: a Sex Odyssey. Basically 70s skin flicks, good luck finding this one, I can’t even find any good clips from Google or Bing videos.

    • Stockhausen

      This is true.

    • RuIN?

      Indeed.

  • Detective D.

    Any Flushketeers hitting the NYC date?!

    • Negrodamus

      Lol, Flushketeers >>>>>>

      • Detective D.

        😀

      • Pagliacci is Kvlt

        Flushketeers…..I love it!

    • ParallaxativeHyperStool

      THIS GUY. And probably my woman. We both saw them in Baltimore like a year and a half ago or something when Anciients opened and it was a fucking sick show. I’m actually more into Death now than I was at that time so I’m really looking forward to catching this again.

      • Detective D.

        Sweet! I’ll be doing the same, bringing the woman along. I am stoked, it will be our first Death to All show.

  • Are tickets on sale yet?

    • W.

      There wasn’t a link on the FB post. I just did a quick google search, and tickets for one of the dates don’t go on sale until Friday.

  • The closest date to me is Chicago, but that’s still like 8ish hours away 🙁
    I am going to see The Acacia Strain play tonight, if anyone cares.

    • Detective D.

      HAIL MARY THE VIRGIN WHORE!

      • My friend’s band, Existem, is opening. You guys should check them out. MS actually had an article about them a while ago. FFO: BTBAM, Veil of Maya, prog metal.

        http://existem.bandcamp.com/

        • Cock of Steele

          Holy balls I remember the article too.

          • Yep. Their bassist is a friend o’ mine. I wouldn’t be surprised if they blow up within the next 2 years or so. They’re all cool dudes, too. The bassist and another good friend of mine are also in an math/post-metal band called Sybassion.

            http://sybassion.bandcamp.com/

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Flat Brimmed Hats Across America Tour?

      • Flat Brimmed Hats, Basketball Jerseys and Basketball shorts. Ugh.
        TAS fucking destroys everything when they play. Last time they came through Lawrence we busted a hole in the floorboards of the venue.

        • Detective D.

          They are awesome live, I always have so much fun. I can tolerate all the Durst2000’s.

          • Cock of Steele

            Can’t get into that band, too many Durst2000’s is overload for me.

      • Although you could call a lot of death metal shows “Camo Shorts and Black Band T-Shirts Across America.” It’s all the same, just different trends.

        • Detective D.

          That’s basically my uniform… actually, I like to vary between black and camo shorts and band shirt colors vary as well. 🙂

        • Howard Dean

          Not true. Button down, tie, chinos, wristwatch. Eddie Bauer. Van Heusen. Calvin Klein. But also Suffocation, Morbid Angel, Funeral Mist, and Dragged Into Sunlight.
          Byyyyyaaaaahhhh, motherfuckers! Style!

        • Cock of Steele

          It’s faded blue jeans all the way fro me. I wore black carharts to a show once. Never again.

          • Xan

            Khaki pants and collared shirt. I’m t00 metal f0r y0v.

          • Cock of Steele

            My swag is only tolerated at deathcore shows.

    • W.

      I saw TAS like five years ago at a BYOB show headlined by Unearth. They killed it.

  • The Devil

    Is the promoter gonna run off with the money again this time around?

    • W.

      It doesn’t look like Sick Drummer is sponsoring now, so ideally not.

    • Bert Banana

      After that Sick Drummer fiasco, Eric Greif is making sure everyone is getting paid, so he’s running the whole show. DTA is full on band with rotating members. Both Obituary and Massacre are represented by him as well. I know Anciients is and I wouldn’t be surprised is Gorguts was either

  • Cock of Steele

    Glad to see Massacre and Obituary are deciding to fuck off from the Arizona shows. NOT

  • Tyree

    No PA dates. That’s some turd boogers!

    • Owlswald

      I feel you. Oregon got skipped also.

  • Mithrandir

    Yeah i’m seeing them next month, no opening band though… I hope it sounds good.

  • Xan

    I am happier than a slinky going down an up escalator.

  • Xan

    Speaking of Obituary, they released the artwork for their new album:

    • crazytaco_12

      ees dope mane

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      This is more like it, more of a mortician style cover. This beats the mew CC album cover into submission and rapes it, that’s for sure.

  • crazytaco_12

    Fuck yeah, I receive the toh hat tip! That’s one to put on my resume

  • Hayden Clifford

    No PA???????
