Steve Tucker Sits Down To Chat As Morbid Angel Kicks Off Tour

Death Metal Titans Morbid Angel Starts Tour with Watain And Incantation and Sits Down With Chris Belser

Legendary death metal titans MORBID ANGEL are taking over US stages this fall on a month-long headlining tour. The 2019 USA Sickness Tour began November 21st in Houston, Texas and runs through December 21st in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. And Vocalist and Bass slasher Steve Tucker sat down with Chris Belser to talk about the tour.

Lockedin: What is it like knowing how much of an influence you have had on death metal?
Steve: I dont think of myself as an influence. When i create music i want to create something that people can appreciate just as much as i do. I consider myself a hard worker and and anything pays off with hardwork.
Lockedin: What impact would you like your music to have on others?
Steve: I would like people to be able to enjoy our music and even use it to escape the issues of everyday life.
Lockedin: What was the process for Kingdom and how long did it take to complete?
Steve: For me Kingdom Disdained was different because you have the same people in different places in their lives. Everything was familiar yet different at the same time. Kingdom Disdained definitely took longer to create but the end process was worth it.
Lockedin: What is touring like and are there any experiences that stand out?
Steve: Touring is a process, you wake up,do interviews, soundcheck,etc. Each day is busy but performing is always nice. I have a lot of memorable experiences but I usually keep them to myself.
Lockedin: After almost 30 years of tearing up the stage, what has changed in your opinion of how music is promoted as a whole?
Steve: I feel like the value of music has lessened as a whole. When I first started very few people had computers. In this day and age people have portable computers in their hands(cellphones). The production of music has taken a hit because people no longer buy albums but download them for free or stream. As a result the artist makes less money and production value goes down. However not everything is bad about the digital age, artist that were not previously heard are able to get out there easier.
Lockedin: What can we expect going forward.
Steve: You can definitely expect more music, touring and overall content creation moving forward. 

Morbid Angel has been ripping up stages since 1983 in Tampa Florida, and from the sound of the new album, its not stopping anytime soon.

Support on this tour will be provided by Swedish black metal practitioners Watain and American death metal veterans Incantation.

MORBID ANGEL will be touring in support of their Kingdoms Disdained full-length released in 2017 via Silver Lining Music. The critically-adored record reunites founding guitarist Trey Azagthoth with bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker. Captured at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and produced by MORBID ANGEL with Erik Rutan, the record delivers eleven pieces of devastatingly dynamic death metal. Rolling Stone hailed a, “cyclone of blastbeat-driven fury punctuated with Azagthoth’s signature heaving, lunging grooves and Eddie Van Halen-on-a-bad-trip solos,” while Metal Injection crowned the record, “one of the band’s most essential efforts,” adding, “the record contains almost wall to wall instant classics, and is not only Steve Tucker’s best album as MORBID ANGEL frontman, but by extension the group’s most genre-defining effort since 1995’s iconic Domination.”
