Cannibal Corpse bass player Alex Webster has checked in with an update from the bands tour of North America with Hatebreed. The message reads as follows:

"Today I'm writing to you from Charlotte, N.C., where we're taking a break on our way up north to start the"Decimation Of The Nation tour with HATEBREED, UNEARTH, BORN OF OSIRIS and HATE ETERNAL.

"The tour kicks off in Cleveland and will hit more than three-dozen other cities throughout the US and Canada before wrapping up in Philadelphia on December 20th.

"We only had one full day off at home between this tour and the European tour we just finished, so we're definitely keeping busy! I figured I'd take this opportunity to update you on how the rest of the European tour went.

"The last time I had checked in we were in Spain. After the Spanish shows were finished we headed back into France and then south to Italy and Greece. We then headed north and did shows in Serbia, Slovakia, Poland, and Berlin before taking a day off in Munich.

"The Munich day off was one of only three days off during the tour. We pulled up to the venue (called Backstage) a day early and had a great day off that, for some of us, included a visit to a really cool hunting and fishing museum in Munich's center. Later that night I checked out a great show put on by another tour that was playing the Backstage, and the following day before sound check I was able to do laundry there as well, which is a pretty big deal on tour! So, many thanks go out to the folks at Backstage for letting us use their venue and its facilities during our stay in Munich; we really appreciate it.

"After a few more shows in Germany and Austria we headed up to Holland for two shows; both went extremely well. The Dutch shows were the last of the tour on mainland Europe and also the last with Obscura and Evocation as support-we want to say thanks to both bands for a great tour.

"The final five shows of the tour were in the U.K. and featured two different support acts, Trigger the Bloodshed and Annotations of an Autopsy (fellow Americans Dying Fetus were direct support for the entire tour; only the first two bands changed upon entry to the U.K.). All of the shows on the tour throughout Europe had been fantastic, and the U.K. shows were no exception. In fact, the highest point of the tour might have been the sold-out show at London's Koko venue, which has a capacity of 1,400. We also had over 1,000 people come out to the Glasgow show, which happened to be on Halloween night. Of course, that holiday creates the perfect atmosphere for our type of music, as did the venue for our show in Colchester, an old church with an eerie graveyard.

"So overall I'd have to say this was an extremely successful tour of Europe; maybe even the best we've ever done. Many thanks go out to Dying Fetus and the other bands on the tour for doing a killer job night after night, and most importantly we'd like to thank all of the fans who came to the shows and made the tour so great.

"So that's all for now... time to start the Decimation of the Nation!"
