Cannibal Corpse + Behemoth Join Forces for 2015 Co-Headlining North American Tour
American death metal giants Cannibal Corpse are teaming up with Polish black metal act Behemoth for a co-headlining North American tour. The trek, which also includes openers Aeon and Tribulation, kicks off Jan. 28 in New Orleans.
V.I.P. packages, which include a meet and greet with Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth, a limited edition tour shirt, a tour poster and more, are available at this location. Pre-sale for the tour begins Nov. 14 at 10AM local time.
Aeon guitarist Zeb Nilsson is excited to be part of the tour, saying, "We're back again! And this time with the most brutal lineup possible. With Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth, Aeon and Tribulation there is no reason to hesitate if you like death metal. This will probably be the number one death metal show for a long time."
Cannibal Corpse, who released their latest album 'A Skeletal Domain' in September, are currently on tour in Europe. At a show in Russia a few weeks ago, the band had a concert stopped mid-show by police. They also had to cancel a few other shows.
Behemoth have also had issues in Russia. Earlier this year, they were detained overnight by Russian authorities due to visa issues and ordered to leave the country.
Frontman Nergal described the deplorable conditions they were held under, saying, "“It was a very small room and the walls were smeared with feces. At night, we asked to be taken to the toilet but our request was denied for some reason. So we had to use plastic bottles instead.”
Hopefully things will be smoother in North America, wrapping up March 7 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
