When The Black Dahlia Murder embarked on their first European tour years ago, they were supporting iconic metal outfit Napalm Death. The two bands quickly became friends, and they have been looking forward to touring together again. Today, it was announced that both outfits will embark on a co-headlining trek through the U.S. this fall, and this will certainly be one of the best metal tours of the year.
The Abysmal Predator tour will kick off on November 1 inside Top Deck in Farmington, New Mexico, and it will conclude at Gas Monkey in Dallas, Texas on Nov. 21. Boston outfit Abnormality, who are touring in support of their new studio album Mechanisms of Omniscience, will join the whole tour as support. On select dates, Pig Destroyer, Misery Index, and Power Trip will join. You can check out the entire tour routing below. Tickets will go on sale this week.
The Black Dahlia Murder are touring in support of their latest studio album Abysmal, which peaked at number eight on the Hard Rock Albums chart. Before this tour starts, the band will support Max & Igor Cavalera's Return to Roots tour. Napalm Death are on the road in support of their latest release Apex Predator – Easy Meat, which peaked at number 10 on the Hard Rock Albums chart and number two on the Heatseekers Albums chart.
