Houston Among Dates for Morbid Angel-Headlined 2014 Summer Slaughter Tour
The lineup was recently announced for the 2014 Summer Slaughter Tour, and now we’ve got the full itinerary for this year’s run, including H-town in July.
The trek launches July 17 in San Francisco at The Regency Ballroom and continues to cross the country until coming to its conclusion Aug. 10 in Philadelphia at The Trocadero. The full list of dates can be found below.
Veteran rockers Morbid Angel have been chosen to headline this year’s run, and they’ll be joined by Dying Fetus, The Faceless, Thy Art Is Murder, Goatwhore, Origin, Decrepit Birth, Within My Ruins and Fallujah. If that lineup doesn’t rock your world, what will?
VIP tickets for two of the dates — their Los Angeles and New York performances — are currently available at this location, but keep an eye on the tour’s website as more ticketing info is expected to be added shortly.
The original Summer Slaughter Tour took place in 2001 with Vader as the headliner. The festival really took off in 2007 with Necrophagist in the headlining spot and successive years have featured such acts as The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Decapitated, Whitechapel, Cannibal Corpse, Between the Buried and Me and The Dillinger Escape Plan among those heading up bills.
