Cattle Decapitation vocalist Travis Ryan adds: “We are very happy to be asked back to the Summer slaughter tour. The first SS tour was the best US tour we’ve ever done and we look forward to helping devastate the states with our take on brutal, grinding death and playing the choicest slabs from our latest album Monolith of Inhumanity. Who’s “ripe for the slaughter!?!?” See you this summer!”

Daniel Dlimi of Aeon comments: “Yes, we are finally going to tour the US and we are really fucking stoked about it to say the least. And there couldn’t possibly be any better way to do so than to be a part of the Summer Slaughter Tour. And with today’s line-up and our latest release “Aeons Black” we stand stronger than ever and will treat you with some real death metal. See you on the road.”

Ash Avildsen, founder of Summer Slaughter on this year’s edition of the tour: “It’s year seven and I think 2013’s line-up is the most exciting and diverse yet. Slaughter has never been a one dimensional experience for fans. This year is a true testament to that as we have an amazing mix of extreme music’s influential icons and leaders of the new school. Let the underground unite!”

Greg Puciato (DEP vocalist) states: “We can’t wait to get back on the road! We’re launching a US tour in the spring, hitting Europe for some festivals and club shows, and then hitting several more cities with Summer Slaughter all summer long. We are absolutely amped. After being holed up in the studio for such a long time giving birth to One of Us is the Killer, we are all pent up and ready to share material new and old with our supporters doing what we love to do the most. Can’t wait to see and either kiss or rip off each and every one of your faces on the road with Summer Slaughter and year round, everywhere.”

Shawn Keith, tour coproducer: “I’m looking forward to extinguishing fires and putting clubs back together each night following DEP’s set. Let the Slaughter begin!”
