Landmine Marathon Writing New Material + Announce Tour Dates
Arizona grind masters Landmine Marathon have announced plans for a week-long West Coast tour en route to the Obscene Extreme Festival in Mexico alongside Napalm Death, Phobia, Dying Fetus and many more. The tour will kick off on March 19 in Las Vegas and continue until the band reaches Mexico City on March 28.
Full dates can be found listed below. The band has also announced that they will make their European live debut later this year at the European Obscene Extreme Festival in the Czech Republic. More details on their upcoming European plans will be revealed shortly.
Landmine Marathon's new vocalist Krysta Martinez commented, "I couldn't be more excited to be hitting the road for the first time with Landmine Marathon and playing these West Coast dates on our way to Mexico for Obscene Extreme America! Obscene Extreme America truly has one of the most crushing line-ups I've ever seen! I am so glad to be involved!"
The band has also revealed that they are currently writing the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2011 release "Gallows," which was awarded "Album of the Month" honors by Terrorizer, who praised its "killer riffs, righteous anger and a burning desire to fuck shit up." Such praise earned the band a hand-picked spot on Metallica's Orion Music & More Festival in 2012.
Landmine Marathon recently re-recorded two songs ("Bile Towers" and "Dead Horses") with Martinez; both are now available digitally.
