Tour Alert: Black Dahlia Murder, Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer… oh my!

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, August 29, 2016 at 7:23 PM (PST)


I’m a fan of cool combinations. For example. the new DC Comics title Green Lanterns features two rookie Lanterns working together, a hot headed, street racing Lebanese-American named Simon Baz who is wrongly accused of terrorism and Jessica Cruz, an agoraphobic woman with PTSD who comes off like a real human being. It has made their new book feel fresh and interesting, despite the concept of the Green Lantern being around for ages and even surviving a horrible cinematic bungling a few years ago. Likewise, the Abysmal Predator tour features a bad ass combination of legacy names and fresh faces.

While the sort of clunky tour name smooshed together into a sort of menacingly murderous collage of the headliner’s recent album titles leaves a bit to be desired, the line-up certainly does not. From Misery Index to the on FIRE right now Abnormality to stubborn pioneers Pig Destroyer to thrash sensations Power Trip (fresh off a recent tour with Anthrax, Lamb Of God & Deafheaven, no less), this is a seriously great package tour.

The Black Dahlia Murder comments: “It is our great pleasure to once again reunite with our long-time pals in Napalm Death; we really hit it off with them when we were just little tykes on our first-ever European tour so many years ago. To this day, Napalm remain a vital force in music and are some of my absolute heroes. It feels great to finally be able to announce this amazing line-up we’ve been brewing…Keeping a secret this good was killing me inside! All of the bands are absolutely killer and we couldn’t be more proud to be considered a part of this elite. We’ll see you this fall, bring your helmet!”
