This tour marks the first time in six years that Carcass has played a "proper tour" in the U.S. Vocalist/Bassist Jeff Walker had the following to say about the gap:
"Carcass is l ooking forward to its first proper US Tour for...six years??? Can It really be that long??? We can't think of a stronger tour or killer line up for us to be part of......it's gonna be a RAGER!"
