About ten days ago we announced details about a tour that we’re helping to sponsor, headlined by West Virginia’s Byzantine with support from Toledo, Ohio’s Mobile Deathcamp. And now we can tell you that when the Byzantine tour reaches its conclusion, Mobile Deathcamp will join forces with Carnivora from Massachusetts, to continue on a cross-country rampage.

As previously announced, Mobile Deathcamp’s tour with Byzantine will begin on June 12 in Elmhurst, NY, and continues through a date in Asheville, NC, on June 27.
