Following 23 shows and 19 flights throughout Europe, today pioneering Florida death metal merchants Obituary are pleased to unveil the official routing of their first North American headlining tour in over three years. Brought to you by Rock The Nation and sponsored by Fender, the Carnival Of Death Tour 2012 will kick off in Orlando, Florida and tear its way through 20 cities.

Further sonic battery will come from reunited behemoths Broken Hope as well as Decrepit Birth, Jungle Rot and Encrust.

The Carnival of Death Tour marks Obituary’s first full US/Canadian tour run as a four-piece with legendary death metal alumnus Terry Butler (Death, Six Feet Under, Massacre, Denial Fiend) on bass. For this special journey, the band — vocalist John Tardy, drummer Donald Tardy, guitarist Trevor Peres and Butler — are working on compiling a special fan-generated set-list that will delve deep into the back catalog to include tunes predominantly off the group's first three full-lengths: "Slowly We Rot," "Cause Of Death," and "The End Complete." To help the band map out the setlist, fans have been asked to drop by Obituary's official Facebook page with their song picks.

Notes drummer Donald Tardy: "I'm looking forward to giving North American fans an opportunity to see Obituary live again. It has been way too long. With the addition of our brother Terry Butler, this now four-piece band is solid as a rock, tighter than ever and ready to throw down! I hope everyone comes out to see the Florida boys onstage. It’s sure to be a good time.”

Adds Butler: "This is my first full length tour of North America with Obituary and I'm extremely excited, to say the least! Being part of Obituary and this tour is a great honor for me. Plus the special setlist will certainly crush!"
