Death metal band Obituary has announced that they are heading out this summer for a huge North American headlining tour. The tour will kick off on May 2 in Atlanta and will include supporting acts DustBolt, Skeletonwitch and Pallbearer. Overall, there will be 27 dates as the band hits almost all major cities across the United States, finishing up in Miami on June 3.

Obituary has been quiet for a few years when it comes to musical releases. They left Roadrunner back in 2005 and had two releases between then and 2009. However, they have since signed with Relapse Records, and after their comeback album Inked in Blood in 2014 they released their most recent LP, a self-titled album, in 2017.

While Obituary only hit 184th on the Billboard 200, it was more popular over the world, charting on the German, Swiss, Belgian, Austrian, Czech and Dutch charts. According to a press release from the band (via Blabbermouth), the latest album is the band's 10th and that gives them over 100 songs to choose from to use in their setlist. As a result, they asked fans to choose which songs that they want to hear and the band will use those suggestions when they make their setlists.
