Suffocation announce farewell tour for original vocalist Frank Mullen

In 2013, Suffocation frontman Frank Mullen stepped away from the group as a touring member due to his new career. That didn't stop him from unleashing vocals in the band's latest album ...Of the Dark Light. Back in March, he revealed plans to tour with the band one more time before permanently exiting the group. Fans have been waiting for months for the dates, and today, they've finally been revealed.

Mullen's final tour with the band kicks off on Oct. 21, and it will include a performance inside Denver's Gothic Theatre on Oct. 30. Joining the band as support is Cattle Decapitation, who is currently working on the follow up to 2015's The Anthropocene Extinction, Krisiun, who will release their new album Scourge of the Enthroned on Sept. 7, and Soreption, who released their new album Monument Of The End last week. Tickets for this tour will go on sale to the general public this Friday, Aug. 10.

When it comes to who will permanently replace Mullen, all eyes turn to Ricky Myers, who has been replacing him on tour over the years. Other vocalists that have stepped in to help Suffocation tour are Decrepit Birth's Bill Robinson, Dying Fetus' John Gallagher, and Kevin Muller, who appears on ...Of the Dark Light.
