MASSACRE Announce European Tour With Death DTA


Florida Death Metal pioneers MASSACRE, who launched “Back From Beyond” – their first studio album in almost 20 years – earlier this year worldwide via Century Media Records, have recently announced high-profile tours through North America and now also Europe in order to continue promoting the acclaimed release. Here is a comment by the band about the upcoming runs, which feature Massacre alongside Death DTA, Obituary Massacre and Rivers Of Nihil in North America and then Death DTA, Abysmal Dawn and Loudblast in Europe:


“MASSACRE are very excited to be part of the Swamp Leper Stomp Tour 2014 & the Death (DTA Tours) Symbolic European tour 2015. This is a great opportunity for us to bring Florida Death Metal to the masses and show people what MASSACRE are all about. Both tours have great line-ups and the fans get to see some awesome bands!!! With the history that Rick Rozz and I have with Death, we feel this will only add to the excitement and atmosphere of the shows.” – Terry Butler / MASSACRE
