DYING FETUS Fan Rests In The Pit As Band Honors Him By Scattering Ashes at Concert


DYING FETUS are currently on the road headlining the “Metal Alliance Tour” with support from THE ACACIA STRAIN, JUNGLE ROT, BLACK CROWN INITIATE and rotating openers REAPING ASMEDEIA and NYLITHIA.

During their May 3rd Illinois stop of the tour, the band received what they considered a very interesting request.  One of their biggest fans recently passed away and as a final wish, he had asked that his ashes be scattered on stage during their show.  When the band ripped into Nick’s favorite song  “Homicidal Retribution”, the band honored his wish and did just that.

“We just scattered nicks ashes in the pit for his favorite song, homicidal retribution, may he RIP. Rest in the pit \m/”, commented the band on Twitter.

Prior to this tour that band was busy in the studio recording their latest release for Relapse Records. Once the “Metal Alliance Tour” concludes the band will finish the long anticipated eighth studio release. Album name and release date is TBA. After the album is complete they will embark on an extensive Europe run that will include headline and festival dates, all of which are listed below.

DYING FETUS‘ latest album, “Reign Supreme”, sold around 3,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 186 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 5 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
