OBITUARY have secured an opening slot on the Los Angeles stop at the Forum in Inglewood, CA on Saturday, April 9th of the Subliminal Verses Tour with SLIPKNOT and SHADOWS FALL. The band were added as a replacement for LAMB OF GOD, who were banned from performing at the church-owned venue in February because church leaders were offended by the group’s previous name, BURN THE PRIEST. This is only show on the tour LAMB OF GOD will not play.
In related OBITUARY news, the band have completed recording and mixing their new CD, their first since 1997’s Back from the Dead. The as-yet-untitled album is tentatively scheduled for a summer release through Roadrunner Records.
