The Black Dahlia Murder - To Play Entire 'Unhallowed' Album, Guitarist Quits

The Black Dahlia Murder have a few news to share today, good and bad news. After releasing their new album, Abysmal, the band has announced another headlining trek - this time, taking the show back to their roots! With Fallujah and Disentomb as support, the band plans to play their first full-length, Unhallowed (2003), in its entirety during the run, performing at intimate venues across the USA that haven't seen The Black Dahlia Murder since their debut was released. Brandon Ellis will join them on the road as the band's touring guitarist and replacement for Ryan Knight, who amicably parted ways with the group.

Trevor Strnad (vocals) comments: "We are very excited to unleash this absolutely crushing line-up upon you all and to play the much requested Unhallowed album in its entirety. The songs are sounding better than ever before, and we can't wait for you to feast your ears on our debut album as it was meant to be heard. We will also be playing some bangers from our new album, Abysmal, and the rest of the catalog... Come out and bring your friends!"

In regards to his departure, Ryan Knight comments: "After nearly 7 years with The Black Dahlia Murder, I feel the time has come for me to step down and focus on other aspects of my life. The decision to leave was very difficult, yet necessary I feel for me to ultimately be happy and keep moving forward. I feel very lucky to have had the best band-mates/crew (past and present) to traverse the world, guzzle beers, and bring the rock with every night... Thank you guys ♥, I'd like to give a HUGE thank you to all our fans for being so cool to me over the years, and all the hardworking people over at Metal Blade Records for their support, and general badassery. In the meantime, I'll still be teaching guitar, working on new music, and just getting pretty domestic in general. Thanks again!"

I saw them just over a month ago. I would have been much more interested in them if they'd played all of Unhallowed. For nostalgia's sake.
