Coronavirus: Origin’s North American Tour w/ Beneath the Massacre, Defeated Sanity, etc. POSTPONED

Posted by on March 21, 2020

 

Despite making every effort to keep the tour afloat, Origin were forced to postpone their Occupation Domination North American tour with Beneath the Massacre, Defeated Sanity, Wake, and Torn the Fuck Apart. The group plan to have the trek rescheduled for the fall. 

 

Read statements below:

Origin:

“Well, ladies and gentlemen we all knew it was coming. For the past week we have tried to hold on and bring Occupation Domination to as many of you as possible but it has become abundantly clear that for the safety of fans, crew and bands alike we have decided to formally end the tour and return home. As of now we are planning on POSTPONING Occupation Domination until the fall of 2020.

For all purchased tickets please contact your point of sale for details on refunds. Stay safe and healthy during this crazy time and we will see you all as soon as possible. If you wish to help the band out, as this has been a huge financial blow to Origin as well as for most touring musicians, you can support us by picking up merch at our indiemerch webpage and we will very soon be putting up exclusive items from this tour on our own bigcartel store. We will get through this together, take care of each other. From the last band standing, see you soon. Hail space”

 

 

Defeated Sanity:

“Unfortunately the Occupation Domination Tour has come to a premature close. Out of 30 scheduled shows we were able to play only 4. This leaves us with a ton of merchandise and heavy financial losses.

To recover some of these losses, we put ALL of our leftover merchandise up on the Bigcartel store.

We need your help and support now more than ever to ensure that this brutal train can keep rolling.

All items can be found at www.defeatedsanity.bigcartel.com. We also added a “tip” item in case you are able to pitch in a little extra.

This sale will only be shipping within the United States and Canada due to monstrous international shipping costs and hurdles.

We will pack and ship these orders ourselves tomorrow before we fly back home. The sale will therefore only be going until midnight on March 17 (EST).

Whatever is left after this we will try to get home to Germany and offer to our European folks.

We welcome any help and hope to be playing for you again very very soon!!”

 

 

Torn the Fuck Apart:

“Our tour with Origin was one of the last remaining tours out there, we lasted as long as we could and battled against the odds. If you missed us, here a clip of a few tunes.”

Coronavirus: Beneath the Massacre & Wake cancel shows; Origin committed to complete tour

Posted by on March 15, 2020

Origin just kicked off their Occupation Domination tour and due to the coronavirus pandemic, the group aren’t sure how far this trek will last. However, they are determined to complete as much as they can of the trek. All Canada dates and a few US dates have been cancelled but that hasn’t stopped Origin, Defeated Sanity and Torn The Fuck Apart to do what they can to perform. Unfortunately, Beneath the Massacre and Wake dropped out from the tour.

 

Read all statements below:

 

Origin:

“TONIGHT !!! The Sanctuary in Detroit is STILL ON with Origin, Defeated Sanity, and Torn the Fuck Apart!!! This may be your last chance to get out of the house for a while, come support while ya can!

Sadly, Due to the restrictions of the Canadian government Beneath the Massacre have decided to drop from the remaining dates of the Occupation Domination 2020 tour and return home.

Origin and Defeated Sanity are still committed to keep going as far as we can! The only game in town! Tour til ya can’t 2020!”

 

Beneath the Massacre:

“Due to the recent developments regarding the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, we regret to announce we are cancelling all our concerts until further notice.

It was a hard but inevitable decision to make.

We would like to thank everyone that came out to those last few shows and we hope to reschedule another North American tour as soon as the situation allows it.

Thank you for your understanding.”

 

 

Defeated Sanity:

“Origin and Defeated Sanity are still on!

Beneath the Massacre has to go home to Canada as their government asked for their citizens to return home.

We are not going to be able to play any shows in Canada due to this and some US shows have been canceled while others now have a ticket cap to ensure the event can still move forward.

For the canceled shows we are working on smaller replacement venues so keep your eyes peeled.

We are all healthy and will ride this train until it comes to a halt.

Unfortunately there are few other options for us at this point.

Hope to still see you all at one of these shows!Kansas City, St.Louis and Chicago have been absolutely bonkers!”

 

 

Wake:

“Sadly, we’ve been forced to drop off the Occupation Domination Tour due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Like many others whom we stand beside, our band has been dealt a major blow not only financially, but also a disruption to our upcoming album release. Devouring Ruin hits the streets March 27th and us not being able to support it by playing shows and getting the album into peoples hands – is beyond crushing. We put a lot of ourselves, our time and again, our finances behind this album. This entire situation is extremely disappointing.

Between the cost of our visas, merch to be sold on tour, buying a reliable van to make it to shows and other expenses – this will set us back immensely. The cancellation means we will not have a chance to recoup any of the costs that we planned to cover from our shows and sales. Sorry to everyone that was hoping to see us in March/April. We will see you when this bullshit passes.”

Posted by on October 7, 2013

Rivers Of Nihil is arguably one of Metal Blade’s finest recent death metal signings. While the Reading, PA five piece’s first full-length offering The Conscious Seed Of Light (out on October 15) captures the brutality of classic death metal, it also blends in the heaviest elements of black metal. So it’s no given that guitarist […]
