The Obsessed Iconic Doom Bringers Kick Off First Tour

Iconic doom-bringers, THE OBSESSED, will kick off their first tour in over a decade tonight in Washington, DC. The long-anticipated trek will run through two dozen cities, coming to a close on June 11th in Atlanta, Georgia. Additional support will be provided by The Atomic Bitchwax and Karma To Burn.

Forged in 1976 in Maryland and led by the inimitable Scott “Wino” Weinrich (who’d go on to font Saint Vitus, Spirit Caravan, Place Of Skulls, The Hidden Hand, and more), THE OBSESSED weathered various lineup shifts and an on-again-off-again status over the course of a winding, forty-year history. The band released three now-legendary full-lengths — 1990’s The Obsessed, 1991’s Lunar Womb, and 1994’s The Church Within – as well as a gaggle of seven-inch singles and compilation appearances. THE OBSESSED is Weinrich alongside longtime partner Dave Sherman (Spirit Caravan, Earthride) and drummer Brian Constantino (a former THE OBSESSED drum tech). The lineup is currently writing material and will hit the studio immediately after the tour for an as-yet-untitled new full-length set for an autumn 2016 release.
