MUNICIPAL WASTE Blackened Side Project MORBIKON Announces First-Ever Tour Dates

Did it just get colder in here?

Morbikon 2023

Morbikon, the band featuring guitarist and bassist Phil "Land Phil" Hall (Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse, Iron Reagan), drummer Dave Witte (Municipal Waste, Discordance Axis), vocalist Mathias "Vreth" Lillmåns (Finntroll, …And Oceans), has announced its first-ever live shows.

The shows featured an altered lineup without Lillmåns and with original lyricist Quotidius on vocals, as well as guitarists Toby Swope (Psychosomatic) and Adam Guilliams (Cannabis Corpse).

"Morbikon was started as a passion project between myself and my writing partner Quotidius in 2020 to express our love of early '90s black metal while simultaneously blowing off some steam trapped in a quarantine," said Hall. "Getting Dave Witte involved pushed the music to a new level, then an awesome opportunity came to work with the outstanding vocalist Mathias Lillmåns from the Finnish band Finntroll. We completed the album Ov Mournful Twilight in the middle of the pandemic not considering any live show prospects.

"Now, three years after the inception of the band, we finally have the opportunity to play the music live. Unfortunately, the logistics of bringing Mathias Lillmåns all the way from Finland has proved to be infeasible. Stepping into the role of vocalist will be original lyricist Quotidius. We are also welcoming guitarists Toby Swope and Adam Guilliams. Drums will be handled by Dave Witte. We are looking forward to playing live and bringing these awesome tunes to everyone soon!"

Morbikon's debut dates are as follows.

9/7 Black Circle – Indianapolis, IN w/ Exhumed
9/8 Wake Brewing Anniversary – Rock Island, IL
9/9 Full Terror Assault Fest – Cave Rock, IL
12/1 Decibel Metal and Beer Fest @ Summit – Denver, CO
