Portland black speed metal trio Bewitcher have announced their first full-scale tour of North America. The 30+ date run is in support of their 2016 self-titled debut album, which was released to high praise from fans and critics alike.

The band, known in their native Pacific Northwest for their electrifying, occult inspired live shows, are anxiously awaiting the chance to take their "heavy metal at the speed of Satan" to seething audiences across the continent. "This tour is a long time in the making," says vocalist/guitarist Mateo Von Bewitcher. "We weren't able to get out on the road much last year when the album came out, so we've been chomping at the bit to do it in 2017. A lot of people have been asking when we are going to do a tour, so we're extremely stoked to finally announce it."

Bewitcher's debut album is available on LP, CD, and cassette via Diabolic Might Records, Divebomb Records and Graven Earth Records respectively, as well as through the band's Big Cartel and Bandcamp pages.

The 'Speed Til North America Bleeds' Tour runs from September 29th to November 2nd, including an appearance at the prestigious Frost and Fire 3 fest in Ventura, CA. For more information and updates, follow the band on Facebook and Instagram @bewitcherofficial.
