Cannibal Corpse will be headlining SUMMER SLAUGHTER this summer and they’re about to leave for a tour of Europe. But in between those events, they’ll be headlining a 23-city tour of the U.S. beginning in April.
Today, the band announced the U.S. Torture Tour 2012, sponsored by Metal Blade Records, Good Fight Entertainment, and dB Drum Shoes. It starts on April 5 in Jacksonville, Florida, and ends in Gainesville, Florida, on May 3.
Their support on this tour is first-class: Exhumed, Abysmal Dawn, and Arkaik. That will be a must-see show for death metalheads within spitting distance of any tour stop. Sadly, yours truly will be missing this tour, because the closest it will get to the Pacific Northwest is Colorado, and I can’t spit that far.
The full schedule is after the jump.

HOLY MOTHERFUCK THEY’RE PLAYING IN MY HOMETOWN! WHICH IS ONLY TWO HOURS AWAY FROM WHERE I LIVE NOW! ON A SUNDAY! *dies of happiness*
Pardon my Caps Lock, but I’ve never seen them live before, and they’re the band that got me into death metal. I’m a little excited.
Entirely understandable. I’d probably be non-functional by now if they were coming near Seattle.
Why in the hell is Cannibal Corpse playing El Paso and Lubbock. West Texas is the asshole of the United States. Makes no sense.
you sir are the asshole of this web page. im pretty sure us people who dwell in THE ASSHOLE probaly think of you as a fucktard..fucktard..aside from that hell fucking yeah man cant wait till the el paso show.
I live in EP and the dude up top is right, this place completely blows. Cannibal is better off playing in real cities. Still going to their show here whooo!
