CANNIBAL CORPSE Kick Off 2012 Summer Slaughter Tour

- July 19th, 2012 –

Metal Injection Live Podcast Announced; Band To Appear On Knot Fest Next Month

Tomorrow night American death metal icons CANNIBAL CORPSE will kick off their headlining spot on this year’s Summer Slaughter tour at the House Of Blues in Los Angeles (now SOLD OUT)! The band will be joined by label mates Between The Buried and Me, Job For A Cowboy and Goatwhore as well as The Faceless, Periphery, Veil of Maya, and Cerebral Bore. In honor of the tour kick off, Metal Injection will be hosting a pre-game Summer Slaughter podcast which will allow fans to chat LIVE with the bands. The one-hour pre-game show begins at 3:00pm EST/12:00pm PST at THIS LOCATION. Don’t miss it.

Additionally, CANNIBAL CORPSE will appear on day two (August 18, 2012) of this year’s inaugural Knot Fest alongside fest headlining hosts Slipknot, Deftones, Lamb Of God, Deathklok and more! For more info head over to the official website HERE.

CANNIBAL CORPSE are touring in support of their critically lauded, impossibly brutal full-length, Torture, released through Metal Blade Records earlier this Spring. On the twelfth studio offering of their inspiring twenty-four year career, the Floridian quintet have never sounded so vital, the album building upon the wealth of powerful, dark, and memorable songs comprising 2006′s Kill and 2009′s Evisceration Plague and pointedly upping the ante at every turn. The record landed the band at #38 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart upon its first week of release, making it the highest debut in CANNIBAL CORPSE history! Torture landed at #7 on the Billboard Top Independent Album Chart, #4 on the Billboard Top Hard Music Albums chart and #32 Billboard Top Current Albums Chart. Produced by Hate Eternal’s Erik Rutan, Torture continues to reap critical accolades from critics and fans around the globe and is yet another testament to CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s permanent allegiance to shrewdly arranged, pile-driving death metal madness.
