California gore lords Exhumed will return to the road this February alongside grind behemoths Phobia. The short West Coast beat down will commence February 15 in Lancaster, California and conclude February 23 in San Francisco. Souls will be severed; dreams will die.
The latest stretch of dates follows Exhumed ’s maniacal run with Napalm Death and Municipal Waste at the end of the year which was met with a host of hurdles including being denied entry into Canada and vehicular failure that left them temporarily stranded in Alabama. Comments vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey:
As happy as we were to get home for the holidays, we thought we should make time to hang out with our old friends in Phobia and grind through our home state of California. We had so much fun playing out-of-the-way places during the impromptu one-off dates we did during the Napalm Death/Municipal Waste tour, we thought we would hit some nooks and crannies back home that we haven’t played in years. Plus, we’ll get a chance to get a bunch of our buddies’ bands on the bill like POOR, Gravehill, DIS and Mortuous. We’ve been itching to play some stuff from the new album live and we’re working out a seriously revamped setlist for this one, so come on out California! Let’s have a few beers, let it loose, and get weird!
Additionally, you can catch up on the band’s last round of roadside debauchery in their latest diary entry — Winter 2012 Tour Diarrhea Part IV: The Long And Grinding Road.
