Punk/hardcore pillagers, OBLITERATIONS, have announced additional dates to their previously-announced impending Eastern North American tour with While Lung, including a set at this year’s ultra massive NXNE Festival.
The faction known as OBLITERATIONS will once again come plowing through the North American populous on tour in support of their Southern Lord-released debut LP, Poison Everything, brandishing their scathing brew of confrontational output inspired by the likes of Die Kreuzen, Black Flag, MC5, Negative Approach, and labelmates Poison Idea. The upcoming routing sees the Los Angeles-based outfit alongside Vancouver, British Columbia-based punks White Lung for the bulk of the latest two-week rampage which will see the crew storming states in the Midwestern and Northeastern US and Southeastern Canada. Coliseum also joins the tour lineup for the shows in Montreal and Ottawa, the latter of which at Ottawa Explosion Weekend along with Boilermaker and more. The tour comes to a close the third weekend in June at the huge NXNE Festival in Toronto, where OBLITERATIONS performs with Girl Band, Mission Of Burma, California X and Grooms.
Additional OBLITERATIONS shows are being added to the routing to be announced as the tour begins, at which time the band will also release their next official video from Poison Everything, being finalized for the track “Scapegoat.”

With past/present alumni of Black Mountain, Saviours and Night Horse and more, OBLITERATIONS released Poison Everything through Southern Lord in October 2014 amidst major waves of stateside touring preceding and following the album’s construction and release. Recorded with producer Chris Owens (Lords, Coliseum, Young Widows) at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606, mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire, Black Breath) at God City Studio, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Tragedy, Integrity, Sleep) at Audiosiege, Poison Everything delivers nearly a half-hour of antagonistic hardcore punk mayhem that simply cannot be contained, in the studio or club.
