Saskatoon’s thrash trio UNTIMELY DEMISE have just locked down a Spring tour of the western half of Canada and the United States.
The young crew will take their blazing modernized classic thrash metal to the highways of North America kicking off in their home province of Saskatchewan at the end of March and rage west across the country and down the US West Coast. UNTIMELY DEMISE will share the stage with Excruciator, Hatched, Hemoptysis, Exmortus and labelmates Mares Of Thrace and more along the trek, even including a co-headlining slot at San Jose’s Beyond The Realms of Metal Festival.
This brutal trek is being booked in conjunction with the upcoming vinyl edition of UNTIMELY DEMISE‘s debut full-length City Of Steel, set to be co-released by Sonic Unyon and War On Music. Limited to 1,000 copies worldwide, the 12″ features a full-color insert and a bonus track of the anthem “My Tragedy,” from the band’s 2009-released Full Speed Metal EP. The wax version of City Of Steel will hit the streets of Canada on March 13th and invade the US on March 27th, with European distribution to be confirmed shortly.
UNTIMELY DEMISE were also nominated as metal band of the year in Canada in the SIRIUS/XM Indie Awards this week. The general public decides the winner of this award by placing their votes at this location.
Anybody attending this the 2012 Manitoba MetalFest in Winnipeg can catch UNTIMELY DEMISE as direct support for NYC death metal gods Suffocation this Saturday, February 25th.
