Frank comments on the tour and thanks the fans:
I would like to thank first and foremost, all of my brothers in Suffocation who I have shared the stage with over the years. We have had the sickest of times on the road, and recorded some of the sickest fucking music the planet has ever heard. Secondly I want to thank ALL OUR FANS AND FRIENDS WORLDWIDE, who have helped make this journey possible by supporting us unconditionally. None of this would have been possible without you. So in closing, I will miss you all. This has been the craziest ride of my life and I would not change a thing! Until we meet up again, take care, stay brutal and I look forward to the next chapter.
But before I take my final step off the stage, to give back to all of you who have supported, me and the boys are going to head out on the DEATH CHOPPING NORTH AMERICA tour. Along with some insane support acts including Cattle Decapitation, Krisiun, and Soreption! I hope to see you all for one last ride across North America. Stay brutal."
Be sure to head out to a show and say farewell to Frank. On behalf of all of us at Metal Master Kingdom and all the fans around the wold, thank you Frank for all the great music! We will miss you and good luck with your future endeavours.
