Detroit, MI has long been known for it’s contributions to American automobile culture, Motown Records, and for being the home of hockey royalty-The Red Wings. And now five trouble makers from the Motor City are making sure metal will have it’s place at the table too.

The Black Dahlia Murder have just released their fifth studio album Ritual on Metal Blade Records; garnering them a headlining slot on this year’s SUMMER SLAUGHTER TOUR alongside- WHITECHAPEL, SIX FEET UNDER, DYING FETUS and many, many more. Stubble caught up with lead vocalist Trevor Strnad at the Filmore in San Francisco CA, to discuss their latest release, Ouija boards, and Michael Jackson.

STUBBLE: How are the shows going so far?
Good man, it’s like five shows in the hole now, um been really packed out, really wild. Just, it’s been awesome so far, if this is any indication of what’s to come then it’s going to be a largely successful tour.

STUBBLE: How are the fans liking the new material so far?
It seems to be going over really good man, we’re playing five new ones, and uh the excitement level for Ritual seems to be there for sure, and it’s a good time to be in our band right now, it’s exciting.

STUBBLE: So yeah, you guys just released RITUAL your fifth release for Metal Blade right?
Um yeah man, five albums ten years, it marks the ten year anniversary of the band pretty much, I mean it’s doing really well, charted well the first week it’s really exciting to see that. I don’t know man, the fan response has been good, just happy to still be on top you know?

STUBBLE: You guys did a special order box set for RITUAL, it came with a Ouija board, and a bunch of other stuff. So do you find when you release box sets like that, it’s easier to move physical copies as opposed to digital?
Well, that was kind of the goal yeah, just to give someone more incentive just to seek out the physical copy. Literally it’s so easy to download stuff now, it’s just a couple of clicks away. Just a little more incentive to hopefully get people excited about the record, and I think in this case just the way it was tied in with the lyrical themes & stuff it just kind of worked out really well.

STUBBLE: Who are you hoping fans contact with this Ouija board?
Shit man, there’s all kinds of people you can contact…Um shit, I guess you can talk to Michael Jackson (laughs)
