Whitechapel Plan November 2015 Tour With Psycroptic and Culture Killer
Tennessee deathcore mavens Whitechapel will be hitting the road in November for a U.S. headlining tour. Supporting bands will be the Australian death metal group Psycroptic and newcomers Culture Killer. The trek kicks off Nov. 2 in Warren, Mich.
Guitarist Alex Wade says: "We are excited to announce a short, intimate headlining run to finish out the year and the Our Endless War album cycle before we head into the studio in January to record our 6th studio album. Joining us will be our tech death Aussie friends in Psycroptic, and a young new addition to the Metal Blade family, Culture Killer, who is a devastating new breed of heavy music."
Wade continues, "We look forward to seeing all of our fans at these shows and can't wait to get out there. Tickets will go on sale at whitechapelband.com on Friday, Sept. 25. These venues will pack out fast so be sure to get yours in advance!"
Whitechapel have seen their star grow in recent years as they've defined their own sound rather than trying to fit within the norms of deathcore. Guitarist Alex Wade told us, "I really feel like starting with self-titled, we really just started to not concern ourselves with what it should sound like and we wrote just what we wanted to. We just focused on writing a cohesive metal record rather than saying, 'Oh we're a deathcore band, so this song needs to be deathcore.'" He adds, "These days we just try to focus on being an all around metal band than trying to pigeonhole ourselves into one specific genre."
Our Endless War was released in April of 2014 and has been Whitechapel's highest charting album so far, landing at No. 10 on the Billboard 200.
