Obituary held a three part series live stream event back in October of last year. Their first two live events took place on October 17 and then again on October 24 and both took place at the ESI Streaming Studio in Tampa, Florida. The third part of the stream series came on November 7, which was streamed from Obituary’s recording studio in Gibsonton, Florida. During the late fall live stream events, the band played some of their rare tracks along with their 1989 debut album Slowly We Rot and their 1990 album Cause of Death.
The metal band was originally set to go on a North American tour with Black Label Society and Lord Dying in October of 2019. Just a few minutes after the announcement, the tour was then canceled. Two months later, it was announced the tour was rescheduled for early 2020.
The confusion stemmed from the theory that a situation between Black Label Society and their record label arose causing the tour to be canceled and then eventually rescheduled. The tour was then set to start on February 26 in Tuscon, Arizona. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, the tour was unable to continue for the last 12 scheduled dates.
