Tampa, Florida-based death metal legends Morbid Angel have announced their first official tour of the United States in 2017. The tour will commence on May 23rd in Orlando, Florida at the Beachum and continue around the country until June 27th, in New Orleans at the House Of Blues.

“We are excited to get back out on tour with longtime friends and death metal brothers Suffocation as main support,” says Steve Tucker and Trey Azagthoth. “We have added the technical thrash metalers Revocation and also Withered to what will promise to be a great night. The tour will also mark the unveiling of the new lineup of Morbid Angel featuring Scott Fuller (Annihilated, Errorgeist) on drums, and Dan Vadim Von (guitarist / frontman of the American death metal band VadimVon) on second guitar.”

Says Dan: "It is an honour to stand among my brothers Trey, Steve and Scott in the one and only Morbid Angel."
