Philly grind trio, DIE CHOKING, continues to book more tour dates in their unrelenting campaign in support of their III LP, with piles of new shows booked well into the year.

Having just days ago returned their maiden tour of Europe, DIE CHOKING is already preparing to embark on another trek, this time to storm Detroit-based Berserker Fest III this weekend. They’ll hammer the audience at the opening night of Berserker alongside Conan, Cannabis Corpse, Black Tusk, Yautja this Friday, March 4th, followed by a house show in Lansing the following night before heading home.

March will see DIE CHOKING on a three-day stint with Fucking Invincible. April will have the band playing Useless Christ Fest 14 in their hometown with the likes of Birdflesh, Suffocation, Artificial Brain, Ramming Speed, and more, followed by a three-day run with Organ Dealer, and more. In May they’ll head out on a four-day mini-tour, three of the dates alongside Pyrrhon, followed by a hometown show supporting Rotten Sound and Ramming Speed, and then a newly-booked tree-day run with Snafu. DIE CHOKING will also play Earslaughter Fest Vol 1, Blood Rust II Fest, Full Terror Assault Fest, Rotten Fest, and much more throughout the remainder of 2016 with a plethora of new tour dates surrounding these festivals to be expected.

Following its initial vinyl release through New York-based The Compound Recs, DIE CHOKING’s III is now available on CD, a co-release between The Compound and Poland’s Selfmadegod Records. Order III on CD and LP via The Compound/Earsplit Distro right HERE, the CD in Europe via Selfmadegod HERE, and all music and merch options via the band HERE.
