2aa98fe4-868e-4f25-8b7d-52cab8fae390
Bay Area Thrash icons DEATH ANGEL will kick off an epic run of live dates this Fall supporting Slayer and Anthrax. Set to commence on September 4th and run through October 30th, the tour will ravage over three dozen cities and includes a glut of headlining shows scattered throughout the trek.
Comments vocalist Mark Osegueda, “I can honestly say this is the most excited, anxious, and yet focused DEATH ANGEL has ever been about any tour in the band’s entire history. Slayer, Anthrax, and Death Angel! What an amazing bill for metal fans! We also have the extreme pleasure of doing shows supporting Anthrax on this run as well. But what will bring us the most excitement is the bond we have with all the hardcore DEATH ANGEL fans out there and we look forward to solidifying that bond with all the headlining shows we have on this run. We have new songs! We are focused, well-rehearsed, and anxious to deliver a lethal performance every night we step on that stage. Thank you once again for giving us the opportunity to do so.”

DEATH ANGEL will be touring in support of their newest full-length The Evil Divide, released earlier this
Spring via Nuclear Blast Records. The Evil Divide was once again recorded at AudioHammer studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof (Trivium, Deicide), who previously worked on 2010’sRelentless Retribution and 2013’s The Dream Calls For Blood. Mastering duties were handled by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York City.
Three decades into their celebrated career, DEATH ANGEL remains as hungry as ever. As a result, uncompromising urgency and unpredictability drive The Evil Divide. The group — vocalist Mark Osegueda, lead guitarist Rob Cavestany, guitarist Ted Aguilar, drummer Will Carroll, and bassistDamien Sisson — satiate the appetite for buzzsaw speed riffs, double bass mayhem, and scorching vocals over the course of ten new anthems.The Evil Divide stands out as the culmination of thirty-plus years of music for DEATH ANGEL. It kicked off with legendary debut, The Ultra-Violence, in 1987. The classic Frolic Through The Parkbegan to cement their legacy and even earned the distinction of landing on Loudwire’s list of the “Top Ten Thrash Albums NOT Released By The Big 4.” The group broke up following 1990’s Act III only to reunite in 2004 on Art Of Dying for the next generation.

In 2008, DEATH ANGEL teamed with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Rush, Mastodon) for Killing Season recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606. In 2010, Relentless Retribution boasted a cameo from virtuosos Rodrigo y Gabriela, while 2013’s The Dream Calls For Blood bowed at #72 on the Billboard Top 200, selling 5,400 copies first-week and earning the group’s first-ever entry onto that respective chart.

Whitechapel announces co-headlining USA tour with Suicide Silence this fall; Carnifex and Oceano to join as support, with Despised Icon on select dates

white flyer

Currently on the road as part of the annual Warped Tour, Whitechapel has announced another USA trek – this time, co-headlining with Suicide Silence! Sponsored by BlackCraft Cult Clothing (www.blackcraftcult.com), the “Straight Outta Hell” tour also features Carnifex and Oceano as support, with Despised Icon appearing at select shows. This must-see fall run kicks off in late September and ends in late October – stay tuned for complete dates coming soon!

Whitechapel recently released their sixth full-length, Mark of the Blade, worldwide via Metal Blade Records. Hailed as “an exciting milestone” (Alt Press), Mark of the Blade was produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse) and sees Whitechapel redefine who they are and what they are capable of with the resulting 11 tracks. Kicking off with “The Void” – which has a Slayer-esque ferocity that is perfectly suited to the band’s three-guitar attack – the songs that follow all leave a distinct impression, and by the time the rich, dark melodies on “Decennium” bring the record to a close, it’s impossible to deny the emotional weight brought to bear. Alex Wade explains, “At this point in our career and as we grow older, we are taking a more open-minded approach to creating our music, allowing what we think sounds good to evolve naturally, rather than to just write what is expected of us.”

To purchase Mark of the Blade in various formats, please visit: metalblade.com/whitechapel – where the video for the latest single, “Elitist Ones”, can also be viewed.
