(By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Senior Writer/Journalist, RiffRelevant.com)

Long-running Floridian death metal monstrosity OBITUARY have announced plans for an upcoming U.S. East Coast headlining tour.

Supporting them on the trek –  which begins September 1st in Carrboro, NC and ends September 16th in Ocala, FL – will be EXMORTUS. Both bands are confirmed to play the first Heavy Mountain Music & Beer Festival in Asheville, N.C. on Sept. 2nd (Day 2), alongside HIGH ON FIRE, BLACK TUSK, INTER ARMA, EXMORTUS, and more!

OBITUARY commented on the new tour saying:

We are super excited to announce the U.S. East Coast RedNeck Run II and are really looking forward to this. It would have been easy to set up shows in the typical cities and venues but we are not your typical band. We are looking for an adventure and something different so we have booked smaller towns and markets so the fans who don’t often have the chance to experience an OB SHOW get their chance!! We have never been to some of these cities so we are looking forward to invading them and throwing down with you guys!! 

 …more details to come on ALL LEVELS of the OB-VIP EXPERIENCE, so hang tight and hang on to your ass because this could get crazy!!”

Following the U.S. East Coast tour, OBITUARY head to Europe in November to perform with Slayer, Lamb Of God, and Anthrax on a 24-date tour.
