Chicago forward-thinking death grind practitioners IMMORTAL BIRD will embark upon a US mini tour alongside Denver blackened death outfit Glacial Tomb (Khemmis, ex-Abigail Williams). The band’s latest journey will begin on June 7th in St. Louis, Missouri and ravage its way through ten cities, coming to a close on June 16th in Denver, Colorado.
Comments vocalist Rae Amitay, “This should be an awesome time, not just because Glacial Tomb is a ripping band, but because I get to spend another birthday on tour and end the run in the great state of Colorado. And we’re playing with so many good bands! We’ve been writing new material and we’ll be playing a lot of it at these shows, getting ready for the studio. This may be our last tour before we record.”

“This shit makes me feel like I am about to get run over by a 1000 elephants. Just as catastrophe is about to strike, I am dragged down into some Lovecraftian depiction of Nyarlathotep’s chaos, and each note sounds like I am going to be stabbed by a spear. This is IMMORTAL BIRD.” – New Noise Magazine
