In what might end up being the second most evil tour this fall (the first one is here), Decapitated has announced a the 2011 Carnival Is Forever North America tour! Joining them on tour will be Decrepit Birth, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Rings Of Saturn, and The Haarp Machine. This sounds like an insanely brutal tour that might result in a few decapitations, some disembowelments, a virginity or two lost, and three C-sections. I may or may not be the one behind the C-sections…Don’t tell on me, okay?
