“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
Blackened death grind unit IMMORTAL BIRD will bring their surly odes overseas for a European live takeover later this month. Set to begin October 21st and level fifteen cities through November 4th, the journey marks the band’s first time ever performing in European territory. The band will be joined by French grindcore maniacs Moshpig. See all confirmed dates below.
“It’s our first time touring Europe,” says vocalist Rae Amitay. “We’re going out with a super intense and fun French grindcore band, Moshpig, hitting four countries in two weeks, and a couple of the highlights will be the Damnation Prefest in Leeds and Bilbao Deathfest in Spain with Sete Star Sept, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Internal Suffering, and a bunch more. Very stoked to get out of the US for a minute!”
Check out live footage of the band playing Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, New York earlier this year below.
