Cattle Decapitation are going on tour this fall. The death metal stalwarts have just announced the latest round of shows behind their most recent album, 2015's The Anthropocene Extinction. "The North American Extinction Tour Part II: In Human Beings" begins October 10 at the Regent Theater in Los Angeles, with dates planned through November 20. Support for the trek will come courtesy of thrash revivalists Revocation, grindcore luminaries Full of Hell, tech-death posse Artificial Brain and Tijuana-based death metal outfit Thanatology (who will sub in for Full of Hell for the first three dates). Find a full list of dates below.

With the exception of Thanatology (whose last release, a split CD with Portguese grindcore band Besta, came out in 2014), the tour's openers have all unveiled new albums over the past year. Last summer, Revocation released their sixth album, Great Is Our Sin; This spring, Full of Hell and Artificial Brain dropped the LPs Infrared Horizon and Trumpeting Ecstasy, respectively.
