Left to Die, a fearsome lifelong death-metal quartet, is embarking on a US tour this summer. Best of all, the tour is a musical tribute to the Central Florida legends DM’s album of the year. Meadow. And even better than that (well, even at the very least) is that the “Reborn Dead” tour kicks off in Orlando.
Left to Die—a band consisting of Death alumni Rick Rozz (guitar), Terry Butler (bass) and Matt Harvey (guitarist, vocalist) of Gruesome and Gus Rios (drums) ex-Malevolent Creation)—debut North American Tour from July. The trio’s setlist focuses squarely on playing an album in which Rozz and Butler had strong creativity, the 1988 classic Meadow (as well as a few choice cuts of Scream Bloody Gore).
The idea for this group was born during a musical tribute at Tampa’s Brass Mug in honor of the late Chuck Schuldiner, late last year. Rozz had the idea to recreate Meadow live, and it all came together quickly from there. And fittingly, given Death Metal’s deep roots in Central Florida, the tour’s first date is at the Haven Lounge in Orlando.
Left to Die will perform at Haven Lounge with Skeletal Remains and Mortuous on Thursday July 7th. Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 5 via Eventbrite.
