OBITUARY EP to coincide with North American tour

Candlelight Records have set September 16 as the American release date of Left to Die, the new EP from Obituary. The EP follows the worldwide success of 2007’s Xecutioner’s Return and as previously announced includes two brand new songs from the legendary death metal band plus a re-recording of the band’s classic “Slowly We Rot,” and remake of the Celtic Frost classic “Dethroned Emperor.” The EP additionally contains the band’s popular “Evil Ways” video.

Obituary’s core of brothers John Tardy (vocals) and Donald Tardy (drums) with guitarist Trevor Peres came together in 1984 forming one of death metal’s most successful and respected bands. Releasing six full-length albums with Roadrunner Records, the band announced their cooperation with England’s Candlelight Records in early spring of 2007. Xecutioner’s Return was released August 28 to extensive acclaim and supported with full American and European tours. “Xecutioner’s Return totally smokes everything they’ve done since 1992’s The End Complete,” said Decibel Magazine. “A tour de force of old school death metal,” adds Blabbermouth.

Now finishing up a series of European festival dates, including Germany’s famed Wacken and Party.San Open Air festivals, the band kick off their second American tour in Atlanta, Georgia and wrap nearly 30 days later in Charleston, South Carolina. Confirmed tour dates are noted below.
