Canadian technical death metal legends GORGUTS kicked off the 2014 Decibel Magazine North American Tour last night in Orlando, FL alongside CARCASS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, and NOISEM. The band will then proceed to hit various territories across the United States and Canada before concluding on April 13. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

GORGUTS main-man Luc Lemay was recently featured on the cover of the Decibel Magazine (Issue #114, April 2014). The issue can be purchased here. The third annual Decibel tour is GORGUTS’ first national trek since the release of their critically-acclaimed new album 'Colored Sands'. Presented by Nuclear Blast, Peavey, Metal Blade,, Season of Mist and Lace Music, the 2014 Decibel Magazine Tour will fester across North America for 21 putrefying dates, once again seamlessly integrating the past, present and future of extreme music.

Lemay comments on the tour: “Since the first day I discovered Decibel, I always saw them as an institution,” he enthuses. “So, when I got the news that we were offered to be part of their annual tour, I felt totally honored and excited as hell! It will be amazing to share the stage with Carcass, The Black Dahlia Murder and Noisem, and perform our new music every night!”

GORGUTS are touring in support of their critically-acclaimed album, 'Colored Sands'. The record is available as a CD Digipak and limited edition LP at the Season of Mist e-shop, as well as in record stores throughout North America. It is also streaming in its entirety here.

GORGUTS, long-running Canadian craftsmen of technical death metal have returned! After more than a decade of silence, mastermind Luc Lemay unleashes "Colored Sands", a new brand of pestilent fury featuring an all star line-up including John Longstreath (ORIGIN, SKINLESS), Colin Marston (BEHOLD THE ARCTOPUS) and Kevin Hufnagel (DYSRHYTHMIA). Few extreme bands have the pedigree of GORGUTS. During their early days as part of death metal's first wave, they created a legacy of legendary releases including their debut album "Considered Dead" (1991) and its follow-up "Erosion of Sanity" (1993). The latter witnessed the Canadians becoming more experimental and technical. After a hiatus of five years, Luc Lemay returned with a new line-up, which released the acclaimed third full-length "Obscura" (1998). By then GORGUTS had fully transformed into one of the most progressive and influential bands in extreme music, which remained impervious to trends, while expanding and redefining the language of death metal. With a new line-up that left Lemay as the sole original member, another milestone album was released. On "From Wisdom to Hate" (2001) the Quebecois successfully merged the brutal and more direct approach of their earlier albums with the complex arrangements of "Obscura". Just as GORGUTS seemed on the verge of making the first decade of the new century their own, the band was hit by business and personal issues and went on hiatus. Their musical legacy continued to inspire and thrive as their native Quebec became a focus for technical death metal with acts such as CRYPTOPSY, NEURAXIS and BEYOND CREATION to name but a few following in their footsteps. Now the masters are back to deliver the stunning masterpiece the metal world has been awaiting so long. Brace hard or get swept away by the mind blowing storm of "Colored Sands"!
