Metal Blade has issued that SIX FEET UNDER are currently preparing for their next round of tour dates in support of Unborn. As previously announced, Decrepit Birth and Cannabis Corpse will be joining them on this tour. Additionally, up-and-coming act Dealey Plaza will open the show. The tour begins July 10th in Houston, TX and VIP bundles are available now at http://shop.soundcheckhollywood.com. Bundles include: ticket to the show, Six Feet Under shirt, limited “Hell In July” poster, and a back stage pre-show hang with Chris Barnes.
Six Feet Under founder and vocalist Chris Barnes comments:
“Hello, all you sick fucks! Just wanted to say hello and let all you maniacs know what we’ve got planned for this year. Six Feet Under is about to take to the road once again, starting this month on May 19 in Guadalajara, Mexico for the Heaven and Hell festival. We are very excited to be playing with such greats as Motorhead and Anthrax – two of my all time favorite bands! Also coming up, June 1st we will be in Memphis, TN for the Scion festival with Whitechapel and a whole bunch of other awesome bands, so that’s going to be insane, as well. Then, in the middle of June, we will be heading over to Europe for three festival dates. One of which I’m really excited and can’t wait to take the stage on: HELLFEST in France!! Looking forward to it big time – that date is on June 23, which leads me up to the month of July with our headlining USA tour – Hell in July! Summer tours in the US are always a blast, and this one is set up for sheer devastation with opening bands Decrepit Birth, Cannabis Corpse and Dealey Plaza!
“I would just like to take this time to say and send a personal message to those in Denver, CO as well as Seattle, WA: to Whom it may concern, you may want to stock up and/or possibly grow twice as much cannabis as you have been… because once SFU and Cannabis Corpse roll into those towns, the sheer magnitude of smoking may – 1. Drain the cannabis supply of those two said cities or 2. Possibly cause low cloud formations. Fog lights should be used on all vehicles to and from the concert.
“On a side note, I’m super excited to have the opening band Dealey Plaza join us. They are a really killer new band and put a on a ferocious live show. Drumming for Dealey Plaza is my nephew, Ryley Dipaola. He beats the shit out of the drums, and it makes me really, really proud to have my nephew on the road with me! I’m more proud than I can say about that, so I hope everyone will come out to the shows and support all these great musicians and great bands that are on tour with us this summer for Hell in July! And we will see everyone else real soon!! Lots more tour dates to be announced in the coming months, so stay sick and twisted!”
SIX FEET UNDER’s latest album, Unborn, was released on March 19th, and features tracks written in collaboration with Ben Savage (Whitechapel), Jari Laine (Torture Killer), as one of the band’s newest members, guitarist Ola Englund, as well as long time member Steve Swanson.
“This is an irresistible exercise in no-nonsense heavy metal, designed to incite wild moshpits and wilder headbanging…few can deliver quite so many bloody money shots.” Metal Hammer Magazine (UK)
“While the album may be called “Unborn”, thankfully for death metal fans it completes the rebirth of one of the genres most animated characters.” AntiQuiet.com
