Cattle Decapitation have released a new video for “Diarrhea Of The Mouth” to commemorate the 20th anniversary of “Homovore.” You can check that out below:
Cattle Decapitation have premiered a new video for their song “Bring Back The Plague.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Death Atlas.”
Travis Ryan commented:
“With the cancellation of our ironically titled ‘Europandemic Tour‘ and social distancing recommendations set in place, we found ourselves with not much to do. So we figured why not address the elephant in the room in the form of a music video for ‘Bring Back The Plague‘ and just film it on our mobile phones instead of with an actual crew.
Dave didn’t even have access to a drum kit, and nobody is leaving their houses anyway, so we decided to lighten the mood with a video. Everything from the band name to the lyrics to the merchandise to the imagery have always been heavily steeped in metaphors and irony always with tongue firmly in cheek, so this new video by David Hall at Uneasy Sleeper may just be our coup de gras…for better, or for worse.
Just don’t take it too seriously, we obviously didn’t. Sit back, have a laugh if you can, and stay the fuck home at all times possible.”
Cattle Decapitation’s “Europandemic Tour” with Disentomb, Internal Bleeding, and Gloom has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band are hoping to reschedule at a later date.
Cattle Decapitation commented:
“Cattle Decapitation Postpones “The Europandemic Tour” Due to ACTUAL FUCKING GLOBAL PANDEMIC

Cattle Decapitation will not “Bring Back The Plague” to European soil this March/April due to Coronavirus and restrictions being placed by governments that are already “plaguing” other upcoming tours and events. It seems Mother Nature is well ahead of us so we regretfully have to “pull the plug” on this tour. We are looking into rescheduling the same tour for later in the year. Cattle Decapitation along with Disentomb, Internal Bleeding and Gloom hope everyone stays safe and civil and wish to see you at the future makeup dates.
This has also left the bands involved with debts and an uncertain immediate future. If you feel like helping, the bands would appreciate a visit to their respective merch stores. Thank you for your support and understanding in this matter!

Macabre have premiered a new video for “The Ted Bundy Song.” That track is from the band’s 1993 album “Sinister Slaughter,” which was recently reissued digitally along with the rest of their catalog. The clip stars Cattle Decapitation frontman Travis Ryan as Ted Bundy and Macabre’s Corporate Death had the following to say about it:
“We are a band that has been around a very long time. Making the entire Macabre catalog available digitally is something new school for us, so to help promote that we decided to do something old school embracing new and make a music video from something deep in our catalog. Going back to 1993, here is ‘The Ted Bundy Song‘ from our Sinister Slaughter album.”
