With COVID protocols being slowly put in place and bands becoming increasingly fearless, tours are finally being scheduled once more. Now, Decibel Magazine has announced the continuation of their tour series, and this time around they’ve got some pretty intense bands on their roster.

Headlining this year’s Decibel Magazine Tour will be Florida death metal legends Obituary, who will co-headline with Virginia thrashers Municipal Waste, with support from cavernous upstarts Gatecreeper, rising death metal crew Enforced, and ‘death-western’ act SpiritWorld. Interestingly enough, this tour doesn’t hit much of the East Coast, focusing instead on California and the American southwest.

“We are very proud, excited and honored to be a part of the 2022 Decibel Magazine Tour,” said Obituary. “Sharing the stage with our good friends and fellow shredders Municipal Waste is something we’ve been wanting and waiting to do for a long time, so super stoked to join forces with them along with Gatecreeper and Enforced to reassure fans for an all-out raging lineup!

“And we want to make this fun and interesting for the fans as well, so we are asking everyone to give us their thoughts on which songs Obituary should play,” the band continued. “We are really looking forward to reading all the comments and suggestions, and start working on the setlist. So, hit us with your favorite song suggestions and let’s do this!”
