Florida-based death metal veterans OBITUARY have released a brand new music video for “Brave”, the opening track off their critically acclaimed, self-titled 10th studio album. The clip, which depicts the band enjoying a day of practice and backyard shenanigans at their home studio outside of Tampa, Florida, was directed by Shaun Egger.
Additionally, OBITUARY has announced a month-long spring 2018 European headlining tour. The trek begins March 3 in Cologne, Germany and ends April 1 in Schijndel, Netherlands at Paaspop festival.
OBITUARY commented on the tour: “We are super excited to be back on a headlining tour in Europe. We have had great opportunities as direct support these past few years for CARCASS, CANNIBAL CORPSE and KREATOR, but it’s time to get back to that final slot and the full power of a headlining tour. 45-, 50-minute spots are just not enough for OBITUARY to cover all albums from the past three decades and our fans expect and deserve to see more… and more is what they will get from us on these dates.
“We can’t wait to bring our full production and full-length concert to Europe. We will be performing many songs from the self-titled and ‘Inked In Blood’ releases along with showcasing all the classics that everyone loves and is eager to hear.
“We are working on the setlist right now and want to hear from our fans which songs they want to hear so we encourage you to give us your ideas, thoughts and suggestions.
“Hang on to your asses because shit’s about to get real… real heavy!!”
After parting ways with Roadrunner following the release of 2005’s “Frozen In Time”, OBITUARY released two albums via Candlelight Records — 2007’s “Xecutioner’s Return” and 2009’s “Darkest Day” — before signing with Relapse Records in 2014.
OBITUARY‘s second Relapse release — the group’s self-titled tenth studio album — came out on March 17.
