The Black Dahlia Murder Return to Europe for First Time Since 2019.

The Black Dahlia Murder Band members

The Black Dahlia Murder will be returning overseas this summer for their first tour across Europe since 2019 including performances at festivals like Party SanDownloadGraspopBrutal AssaultSummer Breeze, and more. Support for select dates comes from SuffocationShadow of Intent, and Decapitated.

The Black Dahlia Murder‘s last full-length, Verminous, was released in 2021 via Metal Blade Records. Without compromising a scrap of heaviness, the record stands among the band’s most dynamic, rousing, and emotional releases to date. Louder Sound crowned Verminous, “absolutely excellent,” while Blabbermouth wrote, “This is a deeper and smarter realization of the Michigan crew’s tried and tested formula, and one blessed with several of the finest songs they have ever written… File next to Nocturnal and Ritual as an unquestionable career peak.”

About the band:
The Black Dahlia Murder has proven, despite tragedy, to be an unstoppable force. Formed in Oak Park, MI, in 2001, the melodic death unit has spent two decades working their collective ass off in the near-relentless cycle of drop-killer-album/tour-hard-and-long, earning the love and respect of the metal community.

The Black Dahlia Murder‘s most recent full-length, Verminous, was released on April 17, 2020, via Metal Blade Records. Without compromising one iota of heaviness, the record stands among the band’s most dynamic, rousing, and emotional releases to date. Louder Sound crowned Verminous, “absolutely excellent,” while Blabbermouth wrote, “This is a deeper and smarter realization of the Michigan crew’s tried and tested formula, and one blessed with several of the finest songs they have ever written… File next to Nocturnal and Ritual as an unquestionable career peak.”

Unfortunately, in May 2022 the band were dealt a crushing blow with the suicide of larger-than-life vocalist – and co-founder – Trevor Strnad at the age of 41, those close to him believing the mental health problems he had long dealt with were behind him at this juncture. Understandably, the members were left reeling by this, and spent many days racked with grief and wondering if this meant the band was over. But having put so many years of work and love into the band no one was willing to give up on it, with the decision made for guitarist – and founding member – Brian Eschbach to step into the vacated vocalist position with former guitarist Ryan Knight returning to take his spot, alongside guitarist Brandon Ellis, drummer Alan Cassidy and bassist Max Lavelle, who have all racked up many years with The Black Dahlia Murder.

The Black Dahlia Murder took to the stage with the reformed lineup consisting of remaining and returning members of the band playing a hometown memorial show for Trevor Strnad at Detroit’s Saint Andrew’s Hall on Oct. 28, 2022. In April of 2023, the band headlined Decibel Magazine‘s Beer & Metal Fest in Philly, which kicked off the start of the band’s North America Verminous Remnant Tour that featured support from TerrorFrozen SoulFuming Mouth, and Phobophilic and marked the band’s final tour promoting the album Verminous.

The Black Dahlia Murder had a final string of one-off performances in September 2023 including stops at Virginia’s Blue Ridge Rock Fest and Worcester, Mass’ New England Metal & Hardcore Fest before taking time off of the road to focus on writing and recording their 10th full-length studio album, which was recently completed and now in the final stages of mastering.
