Atheist Joins Death To All Tour (A Top Story)
Death To All Tour 2012 - In benefit of Sweet Relief (sweetrelief.org). This 7 city tour will feature a majority of Death's musicians, as well as special guests. This tour is to celebrate the life and music of Chuck Schuldiner, as well as to raise awareness of Sweet Relief Musicians Fund – a charity that provides financial assistance to career musicians faced with illness, disability or age-related problems.
Here is the official statement about the tour from Atheist's Kelly Shaefer: "We could not be more honored to be direct support on the upcoming Death To All Tour! It's gonna be a blast to gather with all our old and dear friends form the early days of extreme metal, and also to help celebrate the music from the godfather of Death metal, Chuck Schuldiner. Any fan of Death/extreme metal, I'm telling you now, sell everything to attend one or more of these shows. It's going to be legendary and you can bet on that! We will be doing the Orlando, Atlanta and Dallas shows, so we hope to see all the Southern metal-heads out in force. Thanks to Anton and the organizers for asking us to be a part of this monumental moment in extreme metal history! See you all there!" - more on this story
