Amon Amarth, Carcass, Obituary, & Cattle Decapitation announce North American tour

Amon Amarth have announced a headlining North American tour in support of their upcoming full-length The Great Heathen Army, which will be out August 5th via Metal Blade Records. Aptly christened The Great Heath Tour, the death metallers will be supported by Carcass, Obituary, and Cattle Decapitation.

Speaking on today’s announcement, Amon Amarth share:

“North America, the Great Heathen Army is coming for you this Fall! We have been away for a long time and now we return to raid with the death metal event of the year! We will be sacking cities across the continent with our good friends Carcass, Obituary and Cattle Decapitation. We intend to bring a big show and give you a night that you won’t easily forget. Miss this at your own peril…”

Carcass’ Jeff Walker adds:

Carcass is looking forward to its first proper US Tour for…six years??? Can It really be that long??? We can’t think of a stronger tour or killer line up for us to be part of..….it’s gonna be a RAGER!”

Obituary shares:

“We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this tour! When we got word that our good friends Amon Amarth asked for Obituary to join them here in North America, there was no hesitation, just an immediate yes! We are honored to share the stage and some cold beers with them again along with our longtime friends Carcass and San Diego brothers Cattle Decapitation! If this lineup doesn’t get you excited, check your pulse cause you may be dead!”

Cattle Decapitation offered:

“We are thrilled to get back out on the road in the US and especially with such a stacked lineup! It’s going to be a killer run and an honor to perform every night alongside these legends.”
