Legendary Florida death metal icons OBITUARY return with their highly anticipated new album, “Dying of Everything”, out January 13 on LP/CD/CS/Digital via Relapse Records. Watch the official music video (directed by Odd Life Studios) for the gnarly and massive first single “The Wrong Time” below.
Like just about every album in OBITUARY’s vast catalog, “Dying Of Everything” is instantly memorable; it’s a skill that OBITUARY have only improved upon over the years. It’s unusual for a band that’s been around since the ’80s to be doing some of their best work in the 2020s, but that’s exactly what OBITUARY have accomplished through their do-it-yourself attitude and relentless touring on a worldwide level.
“I think it comes down to passion,” vocalist John Tardy offers. “I say this all the time, but if something’s not fun, I’m not gonna do it. And we’re having more fun than ever.”

OBITUARY comments: “We couldn’t be more excited to FINALLY get this new album out and into the hands of the fans! We chose “The Wrong Time” for the first single as it is a true depiction of the sound, style and feel we went for in the studio and is a great taste of what you can expect from ‘Dying of Everything‘.”
Additionally, OBITUARY begins the North America Great Heathen Tour with Amon Amarth, Carcass & Cattle Decapitation this week and will join HATEBREED for a special one-off show tonight in Albuquerque, NM before the tour begins.
“Dying Of Everything” destroys in the time-honored tradition of early OBITUARY classics “Slowly We Rot” and “Cause of Death”, while maintaining the killer studio sound that the band has been perfecting in their own studio since 2007’s monstrous “Xecutioner’s Return”.

“Propelled by the inhuman vocals of John Tardy, the obscenely brutal guitar tone of Trevor Peres and rhythmic brilliance of drummer Donald Tardy, Obituary redefined heaviness throughout the 1990s. From undisputed classics “Slowly We Rot” and “Cause of Death”, through an unexpected hiatus to their current creative renaissance, Obituary have pioneered, defined and expanded extreme metal, becoming one of the underground’s most recognized and respected acts.” – Decibel Magazine
