Cattle Decapitation announce upcoming tour with Soulfly, Prong; departure of bassist Troy Oftedal

An update from Cattle Decapitation front man, Travis Ryan: “It is time to announce a few things that have been going on in the Cattle Decapitation camp. First off, we have officially parted ways with bassist Troy Oftedal due to musical and personal differences. There is no bad blood and we wish him the best of luck. Filling in on upcoming tours will be our friend Rahsaan Davis. You may have seen him on our recent tour as Troy left tour early due to a physical ailment.”

Cattle Decapitation has been keeping busy throughout 2009 supporting what has been unanimously declared by press and fans as their best record, The Harvest Floor. This fall will be no exception. San Diego’s finest death/grind torch bearers have just confirmed an October tour with legendary metal acts, Soulfly and Prong.

Travis Ryan comments, “We’ll be hitting the road in late September with Soulfly, Prong and Mutiny Within for a US tour! Starting in our neck of the woods, the tour will lead us across the country, along the east coast and back home. We have a handful of dates already and there are more on the way! We here at Cattle Decapitation are all about diversity. So when we were asked to do the Soulfly/Prong tour we said “why not!?” I for one am very excited to see Prong. I’ve never seen them live and when I was in 7th and 8th grade they were one of my favorite bands! True, a very interesting lineup, but that’s awesome as our last couple albums have proved we definitely like to switch things up to keep things interesting.”

Keep your eyes peeled for the second video from the album. The band has completed filming for A Body Farm.

“This isn’t just some angry metal band, these are musicians and artists out to create something genuine or die trying.” CraveOnline.com

“More than simply pushing forward the wall of extreme metal, this is an album that challenges music itself, as well as the shallow way in which humanity views its place in the universe.” Blabbermouth.net
