CARCASS have announced a non-stop, two-week run of intimate UK club shows this May and June, dubbed the ‘Bloody Blighty 2023‘ tour, followed by a performance at Download Festival. Support will come from Unto Others (June 1st onwards) and Conjurer (all dates).
CARCASS, who will also be playing three shows in Ireland this March, followed by a month-long USA run with Municipal Waste, Sacred Reich and Creeping Death, released their esteemed record Torn Arteries last year. Decibel stated that the band’s 7th record is a fusion of “the best elements of virtually every era of the extremely varied Carcass back catalogue”, with Metal Hammer voicing that “Once again, this is Total Carcass. No one does it better. In fact, no one else does it.”
Jeff Walker stated:
“I’ve a wager with Kam from Live Nation that this tour will NOT sell out. I’m banking on the Great British public to make me ten pounds richer by the time we get to Download. Thank you in advance”.
Tickets for all shows are on sale now via the below links.

Ferocious and uncompromising in their execution, CARCASS’s ability to intricately dissect the innards of death metal and rebuild them in their own inimitable way, has been their point of excellence for over three decades.
In 2019 the band released their first single in over 5 years ‘Under The Scalpel Blade‘, followed by a 4-song EP in 2020 titled Despicable, setting a potent precedent for their new full length album Torn Arteries. With the album title referencing an old demo created by original drummer Ken Owen back in the 80’s, Torn Arteriessits as a bookend on the modern side of the CARCASS discography, connecting directly back to where everything began over 30 years ago.
The album artwork also rings reminiscent of the grotesque photography that appears on classic CARCASS album covers like Reek Of Putrefaction and Symphonies of Sickness. Artist Zbigniew Bielak traveled outside his normal wheelhouse to bring forth a time lapsed set of photos showing vegetables shaped like a heart, rotting over time upon a white plate. This form of artwork was influenced by Japanese Kusôzu, meaning: ‘paintingof the nine stages of a decaying corpse.’
