Every since the lockdown kicked in back in early 2020, Obituary have been keeping busy with a number of live streams as well as working on their yet-to-be-titled new album.
Not only have they been busy with the new album but as of today, the guys have confirmed that they will be performing a brand new track exclusively on the next live streaming event.
The band told Overdrive:
“Down to the wire…as the band is in the studio, putting the final touches on the new album, we are also gearing up and preparing for the U.S. Tour with Black Label Society which is just a few weeks away.
With that said, we know that fans around the world are also waiting and wondering when they will be able to see us perform live so this is what we are going to do: We are setting the cameras back up in the studio and will stream one of our final rehearsals for everyone to be a part of!
We are picking 12 songs for the tour setlist and are turning to our fans for help!
We want to hear from you guys which songs we should play so let’s hear it! You tell us which songs you want to hear and we will monitor all our socials and the Obituary website for all of your song suggestions and YOU GUYS will help us pick the setlist for the tour AND we will play them in front of the cameras for you guys!
We’re taking suggestions all week and unveiling the setlist next Monday, September 20th!
We are also going to bring you inside the studio to witness the boys writing, discussing, and working on new material plus give you a little taste of the New Album and play you guys a NEW SONG if that sounds cool with you!”
We are officially calling this the “11th hour 12-pack” Studio-Live-Stream!
Are you guys Ready?
Let’s do this!!!”
Tickets & merch bundles are available via this link. The broadcast will be available for viewing up to 2 weeks after the initial stream and on-demand for an additional 2 weeks after. Buy it now and watch it later!!
