Rotting Christ's "Devastation on the Nation" North American tour that was originally set to kick off today (March 19) has officially been rescheduled for early 2021. While the dates have changed, the bill remains the same, featuring support from Borknagar, Wolfheart, Abigail Williams and Imperial Triumphant.
The trek, which finds Rotting Christ promoting their most recent release, last year's The Heretics, is set to launch on Feb. 11 of next year in California and will wrap up over one month later, making 29 total stops, concluding back in California on March 14.

Tickets that were purchased for the original 2020 tour dates will still be honored and anyone seeking a refund for those stops can seek one at the point of purchase.
Due to the community spread of the coronavirus in North America, the "Devastation on the Nation" trek was postponed as local governments clamped down on public gatherings, banning any events of 100 people or more. Shortly after, the CDC (Center for Disease Control) urged gathering be limited to no more than 50 people, which was followed by the White House tightening social distancing measures, putting a cap on public gatherings at just 10 people.
