Thy Art Is Murder, Carnifex and Fallujah announced for Impericon Tour!

Never failing to deliver a stellar line up of genre pushing, ground breaking bands at the forefront of the hard-hitting music scene, Avocado Booking are excited to present their heaviest line up yet for the Impericon Never Say Die Tour! Tour 2016. Now in it’s tenth year the festival continues to go from strength to strength serving as a benchmark for the heavy music scene worldwide.

Check out the announcement video here:

The Nuclear Blast heavy line-up includes Thy Art Is Murder, Carnifex and Fallujah.

Australia’s rising stars Thy Art Is Murder will be bringing their brand of brutal death metal to Europe with full force. Having just released their latest controversial album Holy War on Nuclear Blast and having toured recently in Europe with Parkway Drive, you can rest assured Thy Art Is Murder will tear Europe into shreds.

"We are so fucking stoked to be doing the Never Say Die! Tour and to have the honor of co headlining it with our friends in Whitechapel" says drummer Lee Stanton. "Over the years almost all of our favorite heavy bands, from Parkway drive to Emmure to Despised Icon have done the never say die tour across Europe and the U.K. and it is finally time for us. The 2016 NSD line up is the most devastating tour package we have ever been a part of, and I can't wait to get over at the end of this year and blast it out!"

Never Say Die! veterans Carnifex are back for the 3rd time! The San Diego metal quintet will be laying waste to stages, supporting their brand new album 'Slow Death', out on Nuclear Blast 5th August. Carnifex have always stood out within the ranks of the heavy music scene. Their ability to temper darkened metal with a cinematic swell of orchestral flourishes made their previous album a fan and taste-maker favourite.
"Being part of Never Say Die! has always been a highlight for us. From our first time in 2007 to our return in 2013, the energy and excitement grows every year." says vocalist Scott Lewis. "2016 is no exception and may be the heaviest line up Never Say Die! has ever had, do not miss this amazing tour!" 

From Fallujah’s formation in 2007, the San Franciscans have melded brutality and brains into a sonic force with an unquestionable presence. The metal world has actually been waiting for a band like Fallujah. Their great mix of “aggressive and emotional” will be taking the band to new levels and will earn them even more dedicated followers.
"Fallujah is excited to be returning to Europe with some amazing bands and playing some of our favourite cities. We're preparing a special set for this tour and plan on crushing Europe on Never Say Die!" says Alex Hoffmann from Fallujah.
