This spring, WHITECHAPEL will co-headline the 2019 edition of the Chaos & Carnage US tour with DYING FETUS , in support of their upcoming album, The Valley (due out March 29th via Metal Blade).

"We are very excited to be a part of the Chaos & Carnage tour this year," WHITECHAPEL issues in a collective statement. "DYING FETUS has been a band we have grown up listening to and has influenced our sound over the years. We are grateful for the opportunity to shred the US co-headlining with them."
Mixed by David Castillo, mastered by Ted Jensen, and produced once again by Mark Lewis (CANNIBAL CORPSE, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER), WHITECHAPEL's upcoming The Valley full-length is a reference to the part of Hardin Valley (west of Knoxville, Tennessee) where vocalist Phil Bozeman grew up. Set against this backdrop, he approaches his subject matter unflinchingly, building upon everything that came before, making it clear that he has survived that which he was forced to endure and is not afraid to confront it. "Phil has been upfront in his lyrics in the past about hardships he endured in his life as a child, and I believe with this record we tried to paint a better picture of that," says guitarist Alex Wade. "I feel our music is Phil's release from his past, being able to get it out and speak about it, and hopefully anyone who hears it that may have gone through similar experiences can find some release in it as well."
