UPDATE: Full lineup and tour dates for Summer Slaughter 2019 have been announced.
Usually the Summer Slaughter social media page is intermittently lighting up with band teaser and purposefully misleading teasers a few months prior to the tour's actual announcement. Not this year. According to a report by Lambgoat, the tour is going to drop all the information at once tomorrow, May 15 with no teasers.
The report states the lineup will include Cattle Decapitation, Carnifex, The Faceless, and Rivers of Nihil. Cattle Decapitation is currently in the studio working on a new record, so that timing makes sense. Carnifex was in the studio as of January, so that also makes sense. The Faceless would be an interesting choice given they don't have any new material to promote, but who knows. Maybe they do? And of course Rivers Of Nihil is still out there promoting their record Where Owls Know My Name. UPDATE: Full lineup and tour dates for Summer Slaughter 2019 have been announced. Get the update here.
This seems like a far more "extreme" offering than last year's lineup. Summer Slaughter 2018 consisted of of Between The Buried And Me, Born Of Osiris, Veil Of Maya as their main headline acts.
