Chicago Death Metallers STARKILL Prepping for North American Tour with Sepultura

Starkill band

Chicago melodic death metal outfit Starkill recently released the album, Virus Of The Mind late last year and now the band is prepping for a huge North American tour in support of Sepultura and Destruction this May! You can find out all the tour dates below along with a new lyric video for the track “Winter Desolation” below.

From The Press Release

STARKILL’s latest album, VIRUS OF THE MIND was released in late 2014 and the Chicago based four piece has been busy ever since.  They are currently preparing for a North American tour with SEPULTURA with a few headline shows to warm up.  There is also a new lyric video for “Winter Desolation” that just launched on the Century Media YouTube channel.  Singer/Songwriter/guitarist, Parker Jameson had this to say:

Winter Desolation was the first track we recorded for the new album, blending together all the influence and experience gained from touring with bands we have had the privilege of playing with.  It also has a guest vocal section from Arsis’ James Malone, which is also exciting since we will be now heading out on tour with them for our third time.  We’re pumped to be supporting them, and the legendary Destruction and Sepultura this May and June.

Here is the video:
