Cannibal Corpse to headline Summer Slaughter

No confirmed schedule or supports yet, but this is a good start, no?

Kings of death metal Cannibal Corpse will brutalize North America this Summer with headlining spot on the upcoming Summer Slaughter Tour 2012!

While the festival's full schedule and routing are still to be announced, the band is honored to be confirmed for the main slot of the illustrious trek. Stated bassist Alex Webster: "We are very proud to be a part of this year's Summer Slaughter, the biggest and best extreme metal festival tour in North America. All fans of the heaviest forms of metal will find something for them on the bill. It's going to be brutal... see you in the pit!"

Cannibal Corpse will unearth their twelfth slab of audio devastation to North American fans on March 13, 2012 via Metal Blade Records. Listed among Decibel Magazine’s "Top 25 Most Anticipated Extreme Records Of 2012," the aptly titled Torture was again produced by Hate Eternal’s Erik Rutan at his own Mana Recording Studio in St. Petersburg, Florida as well as Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas, and features the cover art by longtime Cannibal Corpse artist, Vincent Locke.
