General Surgery Releases Split With Butcher ABC And Announces U.S. Tour Dates

Swedish metal band General Surgery has issued the following statement about a split album with the Japanese band Butcher ABC:

"General Surgery/Butcher ABC split is finally released. The story goes back all the way to 2003 (!) when we got asked by then Escorbuto Recordings president Johan Wallin if we would be interested in doing a split with Japanese gore maniacs Butcher ABC.. Naturally we were, and we planned to do it pretty much right after the split 7"s we did with Machetazo and Filth. After that, things got changed up and we found ourselves working on our first album instead, and it wasn't until May 2007 we got around to finally record the songs for this split. By this time it was decided that the release would be handled by Obliteration Records and Living Dead Society/Coperaction Records. Butcher ABC followed suit and recorded their material later in 2007, and finally here's the result, the most anticipated split release ever. Feast your ears on this putrid mess.

The CD will be out on Obliteration on Jan 11th 2009. The LP will be out on Living Dead Society/Coperaction Records, February 2009. Vinyl 12" LP version is a limited edition to 1000 copies in splatter vinyl, with different cover/artwork from the CD version."

The band has also announced the following U.S. Tour dates:

May 9 2009 LA Murderfest @ Los Angeles, CA
May 10 2009 Phoenix, Arizona
May 11 2009 Santa Cruz, California
May 12 2009 Oakland, California
May 13 2009 Portland, Oregon
May 14 2009 Olympia, Washington
May 22 2009 Baltimore, Maryland
