Happy fucking Saturday to one and all. In this post I’ve collected information about a random assortment of new tours that have recently been announced. But first, I have to mention a tour that it seems was announced a bit prematurely.


Two days ago it was announced that Fleshgod Apocalypse would be leading ‘The Lords Of Extremity Tour‘ in the UK this October, with support from Anaal NathrakhBound By Exile, and Scordatura. There were press releases, official-looking poster art, and sponsorship by the likes of Nuclear Blast and Terrorizer. And who in their right mind would miss the chance to see Fleshgod Apocalypze and Anaal Nathrakh on the same bill?

There was just this one little problem. Here’s a statement that appeared on Anaal Nathrakh’s Facebook page about 3 hours ago:

“For anyone hoping to see us in the UK in October: It appears we have been announced for a string of UK dates with Fleshgod Apocalypse in October. We did NOT agree to play these shows. Repeat: at no point have we ever said that we would play these dates, or that Mick would even be in Europe at the time.

“We are currently looking into whether we can do them for the sake of those who may have alreadybought tickets. But the dates have been announced without our participation or consent, and we cannot guarantee at this stage that we will be playing. We thought it best to let people know the situation as quickly as possible rather than waiting for a final confirmation. Further information will follow as soon as it is available.”

How the fuck does something like this happen? Undoubtedly there was a miscommunication of some kind, but shit, that’s a miscommunication you could drive a semi-truck through. Here’s the schedule of dates that was originally announced:

10/05 Bristol, UK – Exchange
10/06 Birmingham, UK – Roadhouse
10/07 Liverpool, UK – Central Dome
10/09 Glasgow, UK – Ivory Blacks
10/10 Wakefield, UK – Snooty Fox
10/12 Huddersfield, UK – Parish

UPDATE!  From a June 24 post by Anaal Nathrakh on their Facebook page: “Update about October – we’re not going to be able to make the UK dates with Fleshgod Apocalypse. Apologies to anyone who feels let down by that, but we couldn’t make it work. Nazgul et al are being informed at the moment. Hope the shows go well.”

Next, I’m just going to provide the tour posters for a few other recently announced treks that I thought would be worth checking out. I’m being really selfless about this, because not one of these interesting tours is coming to Seattle (at least so far — some of these tours could have dates added).

(I don’t know what the asterisks are for. They were in the list on Howl’s page that I copied.)

  1. I think the asterisks are for dates that will feature both bands. All I know is that Howl is not listed on the event page for the SLC date, it just shows Lord Dying and the local bands (reppin SLC… Word).

  2. damn this is a dry summer for shows here in eastern Kansas. so far the most anticipated tour for me is Six Feet Under/Decrepit Birth/Cannabis Corpse/Dealey Plaza/Marasmus/Torn The Fuck Apart in a few weeks. granted i am super excited for that show, but i’m used to having 6-8 big shows or more lined up each summer.
