In the wake of their recently-released and utterly decimating Dying Gods EP, New York crossover quintet ALL OUT WAR band has just been confirmed to take part in the enormous Brutal Assault Fest in the Czech Republic in just two-and-a-half weeks as part of their European Tour. The announcement comes on the verge of the band’s upcoming return to This Is Hardcore festival this week.
This Sunday, July 26th, ALL OUT WAR will take the stage of the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the final evening of the four-day This Is Hardcore, performing that day alongside the likes of The Exploited, H20, Negative Approach, Power Trip, Rival Mob, Slapshot, Twitching Tongues, Harms Way, Forced Order and many others. Less than two weeks later, ALL OUT WAR will cross the Atlantic for their Dying Gods European Tour. Running from August 7th through 16th, the band will storm through Germany, England, Switzerland, France and Belgium, in addition to the Czech Republic where they’ve just been confirmed to perform at the four-day Brutal Assault, set to join the likes of At The Gates, Mayhem, Godflesh, Killing Joke, Cannibal Corpse, Biohazard, Napalm Death, Nuclear Assault, Sepultura, Sunn O))), The Dillinger Escape Plan and dozens of other acts from across the extreme metal underground. The tour also includes stops at Motocultor Fest in Bretagne, France and Ieperfest in Belgium. Shortly after their stateside return, the band will perform at the three day Hearfest in Gatineau, Quebec September 4th through 6th with No Warning, Expire, Harms Way, Stigmata, Homewrecker and more, and then hit Frederick, Maryland on September 11th on a one-off show with Napalm Death, Agnostic Front, Toxic Holocaust, and Lord Dying.
Engineered and produced by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Hatebreed, Turmoil) at West West Side Studios and mastered by Alan Douches from West West Side, Dying Gods re-establishes ALL OUT WAR as one of the leaders of the underground hardcore/metal scene. The band’s, groove-laden brutality infuses their infamous, searing metal leads with the harsh breakdowns they’ve been known for since inception, lyrically focusing on steady downfall of humanity. In addition to five brand new songs, the band pays homage to some of their most influential acts with covers of Carnivore’s menacing “God Is Dead” and Amebix’ raging anthem, “Arise.”
Dying Gods was released in late June through Organized Crime in multiple formats; the CD version with an exclusive bonus download of three tracks from the unreleased 1993 demo, and the vinyl delivered in multiple color schemes including a digital download code. Orders for all physical versions including merch bundles can be placed HERE.

“Dying Gods is some seriously high-grade, fully actualized, take-no-prisoners, for-really-real metalcore. Heavy on the metal, thank fucking you-know-who.” – Decibel Magazine
“The New York hardcore band take chug metal riffs, add in all manner of vitriol, dive-bombs, and half-speed parts for the mosh kids into hardcore readymade for the pit. No bullshit, just hate… Nasty nasty shit made to crank up and scream along.” – Noisey
“Doubters be damned. I’m happy to report, that for as good as Killing Fields was, this is the record you’ve been waiting for… ‘In Choking On Indifference’ and ‘Servants To The Obsolete’, you have the best two songs that the band has ever written. If the band was trying to make a statement after 25 years in the game, they sure did. 5/5” – Stereokiller
“All Out War have taken a step back to their early sound and have infused it with their current sound to bring you a pummeling no holds barred solid metal/hardcore release… The band is nearing its two and a half decade mark and show no signs of slowing down. 4/5” – New Noise Magazine
