Obituary interview: Trevor Peres in San Francisco, May 2018

Death metal pioneers OBITUARY conquered North America again this spring with their latest headlining tour, supported by Pallbearer, Skeletonwitch and Dust Bolt. The tour began May 2 in Atlanta, Georgia, and wrapped up June 3 in Miami, Florida. On May 25, Obituary rolled through San Francisco, and Hellbound’s Gene Gaona was there for the action. (Did you know Trevor Peres runs a BBQ food truck?)
