Maryland doom legends THE OBSESSED today confirm a full US headlining tour in support of their forthcoming Sacred full-length. The tour is slated to commence on April 12th in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and will run through May 20th in Baltimore, Maryland. Karma To Burn will provide direct support throughout the tour while Fatso Jetson and Lo-Pan will provide additional support on select dates. THE OBSESSED will also join Weedeater and labelmates Primitive Man on five West Coast shows during the run from April 27th through May 1st. The tour comes in advance of the band’s record release show on April 8th at Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. All confirmed tour dates below.

Hear previously released Sacred singles “Razor Wire” and “Punk Crusher” below.

April 7th, 2017 will see the worldwide release of Sacred via Relapse Records on CD, LP, deluxe 2xLP, and digital formats. Physical preorders and bundles are available via HERE and digital downloads can be preordered by Bandcamp at THIS LOCATION. The deluxe 2xLP bundle includes an enamel logo pin, signed art print, and two bonus tracks.

With renewed energy and purpose, THE OBSESSED sounds heavier and more relevant than ever before. On Sacred, the band doubles down on enormous, heaving riffs and pummeling low-end across twelve tracks of eternal doom. Rounded out by guitarist/vocalist Scott “Wino” Weinrich’s lyrical honesty and iconic throaty vocals, Sacred is an album that further pushes THE OBSESSED into the annals of heavy metal history, well worth the two-plus decade wait. The band will perform once again as a three-piece featuring Wino, Reid Raley, and Brian Costantino.
