One of the last shows we were able to catch here in Australia in 2020 before the shit hit the fan was Cattle Decapitation's tour with Revocation, and what a night it was!
The band seem to agree, because their new music video for the track 'Finish Them' was filmed during their sold-out Melbourne shows of that tour!
It was a pretty terrible time last February, with bushfires ravaging large parts of the country on an unprecedented level. Cattle Decapitation organised meet and greets to raise over $25,000 for charity as a result. They commented on the situation:
“When traveling to Australia to embark on our Australia/New Zealand/Japan tour in early 2020, we wondered what would await us on their soil as bushfires were raging, claiming the lives of millions of wild animals, altering the lives of many of our fans and citizens of Australia.
What we didn’t expect was record turnouts with serious rabid fans that I think just wanted to take their minds off the current state of affairs and do their best to have a good time given the utterly shit circumstances they were experiencing. We quickly organized meet and greets at the last minute and were able to raise well over $25,000AUD for the Cobargo Wildlife Sanctuary, who had pretty much lost everything in the fires.
Thanks to the incredible support from our fans down under and through other folks ready to help, they were able to rebuild. We really felt like we had been given a gift by the fans, so we wanted to give back to these people who came out and raged with us by releasing our final music video for ‘Death Atlas,’ which showcases how sick the shows were and how truly amazing our fans are.
Look close, maybe you’ll find yourself in the crowd! Looking forward to returning to the stage one day, hopefully soon!”
