Regarding the tour, WITHERED comments: “We’re proud to announce our participation in this incredible tour. We couldn’t be more honored to share this with our friends, Revocation, extreme metal legends, Suffocation, and the progenitors of death metal, Morbid Angel with an incredible new lineup!”

WITHERED are touring in support of their new album, ‘Grief Relic’. The album, hailed as “a smarter and more sophisticated version of Withered, staking out territory in a more expansive landscape.” (Stereogum) is streaming now at the official WITHERED bandcamp page. The highly anticipated full-length is available across multiple CD and LP formats here.

WITHERED previously announced a headlining US and Eastern Canadian tour. The Winter 2017 Tour, sponsored by Metal Injection, sees the band touring throughout February into March, in a run of in a run of make up dates for their summer tour. Support on this tour comes from IMMORTAL BIRD. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

Regarding the tour, WITHERED founder and guitarist/vocalist comments: “Injury & transportation woes did their best to discourage us last August and caused regrettable cancellations for us across the east coast. Rescheduling many of the original dates and visiting some new cities on this outing is affording us the opportunity to develop a more thorough set list, and give much more anticipation to embracing the cold & harshness of the Winter. Many of these cities we haven’t visited in nearly 5 years so this tour is announced with tremendous anticipation from us. We’re also  very excited that our friends, Immortal Bird, agreed to join us on this one.

WITHERED are part of next year’s inaugural Decibel Magazine Metal and Beer Fest. The festival, which takes place on April 22 and 23, sees the band sharing the stage with SLEEP, PIG DESTROYER, MUNICIPAL WASTE, and many more. The full festival lineup and more information can be found here.
