Cannibal Corpse recently wrapped up their stint with Slayer on their final tour — stopping by in Ottawa last May — but this time around, they’re playing their own headlining sets.
Metal outfits Thy Art is Murder and Perdition Temple are joining the tour as special guests and main opening acts.
The tour comes in support of their critically-acclaimed 2017 album, Red Before Black.
Aside from Montreal, it’s been more than three years since Cannibal Corpse have played any of the newly-scheduled Canadian cities. For London, Ont., however, it’s been well over two decades.
The American band were making headlines back in December when guitarist Pat O’Brien was arrested following an extremely bizarre sequence of alleged criminal activities in his Northdale, Fla. neighbourhood.
The 54-year-old faced multiple charges of aggravated assault and burglary. He was released on Dec. 14 after paying only a US$50,000 bond.

On how the band feels about bringing O’Brien back to their ranks, frontman George “Corpsegrinder” Fischer recently spoke to Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta on The Jasta Show podcast.
“We love him,” said Corpsegrinder.
“We want him back. But when I saw him in the court with the vest, dude, I cried.”
Corpsegrinder, 50, continued: “He’s got a road ahead of him still with legal issues, and that’s out of our hands. We support him 100 per cent; we’re behind him 100 percent.”
“We wish the best for him and we’re just waiting to see,” the singer concluded.
Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, Aug. 9, at 10 a.m. ET.
