ANTI-MORTEM to Support BUTCHER BABIES on Upcoming Fall U.S. Tour


Southern hard rockers ANTI-MORTEM are pleased to announce their upcoming tour – supporting Butcher Babies in the U.S. this fall! The tour begins on September 27th in Scottsdale, AZ and travels across the states until coming to a close in Las Vegas, NV on October 23rd. This tour begins two months after the band’s run with Machine Head this summer, ending in late July, and under two weeks after the band’s stop at Monster Energy AFTERSHOCK Festival in Sacramento, CA. See below for all current tour dates.


In a collective statement, the band says, “Hey world! We’re super excited to be touring the U.S. with the Butcher Babies. It’s a huge privilege and amazing to go out with such a great act. We’re gonna kick some ass with these badass guys (and ladies) and burn some faces. Get ready America!”

What the American hard rock and metal scene needs right now is an infusion of youth and some new blood coursing through its veins. Enter ANTI-MORTEM and their upcoming debut album, New Southern. Formed in 2008 and with over 300 shows already to their name, the combined average age of this Oklahoma quintet is just 21-years-old. ANTI-MORTEM were raised on southern rock & heavy metal and driven by a hunger to make an impact. The band dole out bottom-heavy and groove-laden anthems with every track and infuse a modern sense of melody that is the signature trademark of all the metal greats they’ve learned from.  Also present and accounted for: southern swagger in spades, courtesy of the band’s roots and upbringing.

Larado Romo – Lead Vocals
Nevada Romo – Guitar
Zain Smith – Guitar
Corey Henderson–  Bass
Levi Dickerson –  Drums
