Obituary played NY w/ Immolation, Blood Incantation & Ingrown, announce more shows (pics & dates)

Obituary released their fantastic eleventh album, Dying of Everything, in January, and they’ve been been on a stacked tour with Immolation, Blood Incantation, and Ingrown that stopped in NYC earlier this month (5/4) for a sold out show at the 1200-capacity Irving Plaza. Pictures from that show are in this post.

It was already a packed house for death metal-tinged metallic hardcore band Ingrown‘s opening set, a strong opener on a bill that never stopped giving. Blood Incantation, who probably could headline the venue on their next album, came next, and their spacey death metal was well received. It was the second time I saw BI play right before Immolation on a NYC bill, and the NY death metal legends — who did headline the exact venue in support of their amazing 2022 album – sent the crowd into a frenzy with songs from throughout their long career. Fun fact: they mentioned they had never toured with their old friends Obituary before.

Obituary finally took the stage, and despite being a night full of headliners, the crowd made it clear that this night ultimately belonged to the Florida OGs who also played a career-spanning set that included six songs from the new album including instant hits like “The Wrong Time,” “Weaponize the Hate,” “My Will To Live,” and title track “Dying of Everything” that sounded just as great as the classics. People were singing and moshing along, and as always Obituary were in great spirits from the beginning to the end.

After wrapping up their current outing, which includes sets by all bands on the tour at Milwaukee Metal Fest this month, Obituary will head to Europe and the UK for festivals and a headlining tour beginning in August and running through September. “It has been way too long since we’ve had the opportunity to invade England & Ireland properly and we could NOT be any more excited about this announcement,” they say. “Finally a tour that brings us to so many cool towns and cities across the UK that allows us to get up close & personal with our fans and a true ‘grass roots’ run! Hang on to your Ass..this is going to be epic!!” Tickets to the new dates go on sale Monday, May 22 at 10 AM BST, and you can see all dates along with more NYC photos by Mathieu Bredeau, below…
