Legendary Death Metal band OBITUARY will enter Red Room studios in Tampa, Florida on February 17 to begin recording their new album, tentatively due this summer via Roadrunner Records.
The band's as-yet-untitled new CD will mark their first collection of new songs since 1997's "Back From the Dead".
In related news, OBITUARY guitarist Trevor Peres' side project, CATASTROPHIC, will be teaming up with ABSCESS and DIVINE EMPIRE for a European tour between April 24 and May 5 (including an appearance at Germany's Fuck the Commerce festival). CATASTROPHIC will be touring in support of their newly recorded sophomore album, "Apathy's Warm Embrace", tentatively due later in the year through an as-yet-undetermined label.
CATASTROPHIC, who are currently unsigned, released their debut album, "The Cleansing", in 2001 via Metal Blade Records.
