Australia’s rising stars, THY ART IS MURDER, will be bringing their brand of brutal death metal to Europe with full force. Having just released their latest controversial album “Holy War” on Nuclear Blast and having toured recently in Europe with PARKWAY DRIVE, you can rest assured THY ART IS MURDER will tear Europe into shreds.
“We are so fucking stoked to be doing the »Impericon Never Say Die! Tour 2016« and to have the honor of co headlining it with our friends in WHITECHAPEL,” says drummer Lee Stanton. “Over the years almost all of our favorite heavy bands, from PARKWAY DRIVE to EMMURE to DESPISED ICON have done the never say die tour across Europe and the UK and it is finally time for us. The 2016 »Impericon Never Say Die! Tour 2016« line-up is the most devastating tour package we have ever been a part of, and I can’t wait to get over at the end of this year and blast it out!”
Never Say Die! veterans CARNIFEX are back for the 3rd time! The San Diego metal quintet will be laying waste to stages, supporting their brand new album, “Slow Death”, out in August on Nuclear Blast. CARNIFEX have always stood out within the ranks of the heavy music scene. Their ability to temper darkened metal with a cinematic swell of orchestral flourishes made their previous album a fan and tastemaker favourite.
“Being apart of the »Impericon Never Say Die! Tour 2016« has always been a highlight for us. From our first time in 2007 to our return in 2013, the energy and excitement grows every year,” says vocalist Scott Lewis. “2016 is no exception and maybe the heaviest line-up the »Impericon Never Say Die! Tour 2016« has ever had, do not miss this amazing tour!”
From FALLUJAH’s formation in 2007, the San Franciscans have melded brutality and brains into a sonic force with an unquestionable presence. The metal world has actually been waiting for a band like FALLUJAH. Their great mix of “aggressive and emotional” will be taking the band to new levels and will earn them even more dedicated followers.
“FALLUJAH are excited to be returning to Europe with some amazing bands and playing some of our favourite cities. We’re preparing a special set for this tour and plan on crushing Europe on the »Impericon Never Say Die! Tour 2016«,” says Alex Hoffmann from FALLUJAH.
