The Death To All Tour returns in 2013, bigger, badder, longer, and more organized than before. And GunShyAssassin is proud to reveal that we are an official media sponsor for the trek. How fucking cool is that?
The tour will boast the Human lineup of Death — guitarist Paul Masvidal, bassist Steve DiGiorgio, and drummer Sean Reinert — playing songs from the band’s first four albums, and the cream of the Human album.
The singer for the tour has not yet been announced, but will be revealed soon enough. Once again, the bottom line of the tour is to spread the word and raise some money for the charity Sweet Relief, while keeping the music of Chuck Schuldiner alive.
According to the manager of the Death legacy, Eric Greif, the plan of attack for 2013 was to do two versions of Death To All.
One of them — DTA1 — focusing on the band’s first four releases (1987’s Scream Bloody Gore, 1988’s Leprosy, 1990’s Spiritual Healing and 1991’s Human), and another — DTA2 — focusing on their final three.
“It will be the DTA2 lineup that goes to Europe to do that one fest,” Eric tells us, “but at NDF they’ll be playing songs from the entire catalog”.
Greif says the plan in 2014 is to try and once again combine the lineups for a monster world tour, if it is logistically possible. “It is all about getting everyone together.”
The 2013 installment of the tour is also bigger, with more dates in more cities, including two shows in Ohio.
