Decapitated are pleased to announce re-scheduled Irish/UK dates for their 25th Anniversary Tour, which was recently postponed due to the ongoing pandemic situation. The masterly death metallers will hit our stages throughout this March and April, accompanied by new special guests Signs Of The Swarm and Harbinger. New show dates have been added in Hull, Leeds, Bridgend, Norwich and Milton Keynes.
Tickets are on-sale now via the below links.
*Previously purchased tickets will remain valid*
Decapitated’s Vogg commented,
“I still remember it like it was yesterday… 22 years ago, our first ever UK tour, straight after Winds of Creation was released. We’d been touring with Lock up and Corporation 187. That was the first time we played for fans in England, and they called us the “helicopter band” because we would windmill for the entire set. It was a really great time for us, and we received a warm welcome in every town. That’s why I am grateful that Decapitated can come back to the UK/IRL, which are almost like our second homes when we talk about the metal scene. We can’t wait to smash some venues we haven’t played for years, like The Underworld in London, which is legendary, plus visiting completely new places like Bridgend, Milton Keynes and Hull, where we have never played before. Prepare for more songs from our old catalogue, Nihility and Winds of Creation. Prepare for death metal madness, and let’s celebrate it all together like we always did. See you soon friends!”

Formed in 1996, Polish tech death masters Decapitated have built a reputation over the years as one of the international leaders of their genre. Over their 25-year career, Decapitated have released seven studio albums, which are considered to be some of the most influential death metal releases of the 21st century.
Officially released via Nuclear Blast for the first time, Decapitated‘s early demos The First Damned (released last year) have not been remixed, remastered or messed with in any way. Instead, they are a blistering snapshot of four young men with fire in their bellies and a bright future ahead of them.
