“Raise up the Traitors! Higher! Higher!”

Modern American thrash national treasures The Black Dahlia Murder have gifted the world with one of my favorite records of the year, their seventh LP Abysmal, which was released in September. In support of that amazing record, they’ve been trekking through the country on the 10th Anniversary of the IndieMerch Tour, the first leg of which featured hardcore heavy hitters Harms Way and Maruta, but sadly didn’t come through our neck of the woods. But fret not, true believers, for the second wave of the tour is on its way to Philly at Union Transfer on 12/15 and brings with it one of the most stacked line-ups I’ve seen in some time, featuring BDM, NOLA blackened death heroes Goatwhore, Virginia old school thrash rabble rousers Iron Reagan, and up in coming tech death Faceless/Animals As Leaders supergroup Entheos.






Tickets are (surprisingly) still available, but keep your fucking receipt because you can go to our Facebook for a chance to win two tickets to the show! And don’t forget to check out The Black Dahlia Murder and Union Transfer on Facebook as well!
