The Black Dahlia Murder announces headlining tour

Fresh off the Rockstar Mayhem Festival and leading up to their highly anticipated release, Deflorate, out September 15th, The Black Dahlia Murder are ready to get back out on the road with direct support slots locked down with Slipknot (8/23 - 9/05) and with Children of Bodom (9/18 – 10/12).


Once The Black Dahlia Murder finishes up their run of dates with Children of Bodom they will hit the road for their first headline run in concurrence with the release of Deflorate, the Michigan metallers' 4th full-length studio album. For their headline run, The Black Dahlia Murder will be taking out Skeletonwitch, Toxic Holocaust, and Trap Them on a month long trek across the US.


“On the behalf of my mates in The Black Dahlia Murder, we are fucking pumped to hit the road with Skeletonwitch, Toxic Holocaust, and Trap Them. We have forged this alliance in the name of Satan, hand picking the best bands possible to bring you the most stage dive worthy tour of the fall. Circle up!” comments vocalist Trevor Strnad.


In other news The Black Dahlia Murder’s very first DVD, Majesty, has reached certified gold in Canada this week.


Front man Trevor Strnad weighs in on the band’s latest feat, “We are completely blown away to learn that our beloved pet Majesty has gone gold in the land of cold…Canada! We want to thank all of our relentlessly devoted Canadian fans for their support. We do what we do for you…the vampire youth. Stay tuned for more DVD footage with the new album, Deflorate!”


Deflorate was produced by The Black Dahlia Murder, Mark Lewis (Deicide) and Jason Suecof (Beneath the Massacre, Job for a Cowboy) with mixing duties handled by Suecof. Deflorate is multifaceted death trip: beautiful, evil, and morbidly addicting. The Black Dahlia Murder’s fourth thrashing epic sees no punch pulled, no gravestone unturned, no soul uncorrupted. Guard your precious innocence all you like, it will do you no good—Deflorate is here.
