Locusta To Embark On New U.S. Tour Dates

After a two-year hiatus, the Ohio technical grinding death metal peddlers in Locusta will be embarking on a live takeover through the East Coast this Spring.

Slated to commence on May 13th in Raleigh, North Caroline, Locusta will rape faces through Columbia, Knoxville, Columbus, Washington DC, Baltimore, Brooklyn, Providence, Portland, Philadelphia, Harrisonburg and Richmond with additional incursions to be announced in the coming weeks. The band will be joined by drummer Alex Tomlin (Battlemaster, Arsis, Withered et al).

Locusta is currently putting the finishing touches on an as-yet-untitled full-length tentatively scheduled to drop later this year. Comments the band of the forthcoming live offensive:

"We're looking forward to hitting the road again after such an agonizingly long break from touring and to what we're anticipating will be some of the best shows we've ever played, both in respect to the caliber of the bands we're billed with and the fact that our live sets sound tighter than they ever have before. Our set lists will mostly contain songs from the new album, including the first track we've ever written that extends past the nine-minute mark, which is easily the darkest and most epic piece of music we've written so far. There is more grinding technicality than before, but the songs are also much more mature from a songwriting point of view than what you hear on our first album. We're excited to be sharing this time in the band with all of our new and old friends on the road, but...no survivors."
