Capitalizing on the huge embrace and critical success of their long awaited studio return “Sacred“, The Obsessed will tour the U.S. again this fall. The headlining tour will begin September 27th in Asheville, North Carolina and end October 27th in Baltimore, Maryland. Direct support will be provided by Cobalt and Iron Tongue on select dates.
