Defeated Sanity will be touring on their 2020 album *The Sanguinary impetus, *released in 2020 via Willowtip Records.

According to their press release:

Defeated Sanity were formed in 1994 as a project of Wolfgang Teske (guitar) and Lille Gruber (drums) “with the intention to play the most brutal and intense death metal possible,” according to their bio through Willowtip. Since then, like many bands, they’ve undergone some changes. Defeated Sanity’s current lineup is as follows:

Lille Gruber – Drums, Guitar
Jacob Schmidt – Bass
Josh Welshman – Vocals

Malignancy re-released their classic album *Intrauterine Cannibalism, *in 2019, and will likely be revisiting a lot of the songs from that album, as well as songs from their many records throughout the years.

Prophecy come from Texas and, in the grand tradition of bands on this tour, have also been at it since the 90s when it comes to serving up brutality. Their most recent record was 2019’s *Foreseen Scriptures *full-length, out via Prophecy Records.

Strangle Wire, the tour’s opening act, dropped their record *Shaped by Human Frailty *in September of this year and will be touring in support of it during the coming months.
