Official press release:
“Disinterred British extreme metal legends, Carcass, will embark on a select amount of intimate headlining North American shows this September in support of their upcoming sixth full-length release, Surgical Steel. “Well we thought we’d play a few small key shows, kinda like the vibe we had in London earlier this year,” commented bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker. “Maybe we’re being a bit optimistic thinking we can fill these venues? Well to make sure we do we’re bringing along some old friends & bands who will probably blow us away. We’re too much of a bunch of tight wads to throw a record release party so this is the closest you’ll get – come on down, and bring your receipt with the new album purchase and demand a refund!”
