Suicide Silence + Whitechapel Announce U.S. Tour With Despised Icon, Carnifex + Oceano [Update]
Tour dates have been added since the initial announcement. The dates below represent the full tour itinerary.
The ‘Straight Outta Hell’ tour will be a month-long trek beginning in late September and carrying on until late October. Whitechapel are currently making the run on Warped Tour, so it seems like after a short break, the band will return to the road with some of deathcore’s finest.
Whitechapel recently released their sixth full-length album, Mark of the Blade. "At this point in our career and as we grow older, we are taking a more open-minded approach to creating our music, allowing what we think sounds good to evolve naturally, rather than to just write what is expected of us,” says guitarist Alex Wade.
Despised Icon write, “America, we're happy to announce that we'll be playing select dates this fall with a few old friends.” Carnifex also shared their excitement: “STRAIGHT OUTTA HELL This is once in a lifetime. The bands that built a genre. See you in the fall.”
For deathcore fans, this is definitely a bill you can’t miss. Stay tuned for the full list of tour dates coming soon!
Update: The first batch of dates for the tour have been revealed and can be seen below. As you can see, Despised Icon will be on board for only select dates, while Whitechapel, Suicide Silence, Oceano and Carnfiex will play all dates.
