Cattle Decapitation Exit Tour After Alleged Sucker Punch by Six Feet Under’s Chris Barnes

Metal Blade Technical death metal masters Cattle Decapitation have dropped of the ‘Autumn Apocalypse Tour,’ which features Six Feet Under and Wretched. According to Cattle frontman Travis Ryan, the band’s sudden exit from the tour was caused by former Cannibal Corpse and current Six Feet Under vocalist Chris Barnes sucker punching Ryan during a verbal confrontation. According to Ryan, Chris Barnes was dissing Cattle Decapitation while onstage the previous night. After Ryan approached Barnes to challenge him on why the Six Feet Under singer would smack talk the band, Barnes reportedly punched Ryan mid-sentence and ran away. Travis Ryan took to his personal Facebook page to vent about Barnes and the hostile situation. “Chris Barnes is a f—ing hack,” begins Ryan. “I’ve personally passed on at least 5 Six Feet tours over the last 8 or so years because he pulls so much nonsense on the support bands because his ego is astronomical. We’re leaving the Chris Barnes Show tour today. Go to the Chris Barnes show and buy some of their merch. They need it desperately.” Ryan continued his tirade in a series of posts: He couldn’t handle the fact that we were destroying him nightly on merch and talked s–t about us on stage last night. I went to confront him about that and he sucker punched me as I was talking. He immediately RAN out the door and fled to his bus like he does every night when the two fans that are left for their show are trying to get him to sign something. We’re leaving because we have no interest in bringing more people to the chris barnes show. There was no ‘fight’. He punched me, RAN away and a few people saw it. I just walked out told his tour manager the deal, wrapped up the merch and left. Just don’t go to the show and please get the word out. Cattle Decapitation is not doing this tour as we no longer wish to bring people to his show. Cuz its HIS show. More than enough people have drilled that fact into us. He says ‘what about showing some respect’ I laughed, said ‘respect?’ And proceeded to tell him about the time where he spent all night with me outside their bus @ the tail end of the butchered at birth tour in 93 and that respect was paid long ago and he’s since proved to the metal world how much of a b-tch he is… I got ‘dude, in 1993…’ In there and he punched me as I was talking. Ran out the door and seriously thinks he’s a bad ass still? Hahaha… Here’s how chris barnes works: punches. Runs. Does the Rocky dance like he’s a badass on his tour bus he’s about to not f—in afford. Chris Barnes tweeted a short response to the statements of Travis Ryan, which has now been deleted from Barnes’ Twitter page. “If you eat tofu you’ll get you’re ass kicked in a fight. #knocked out.” Six Feet Under and Wretched are continuing with the remainder of their U.S. dates, finishing the tour in Atlanta, Ga. on Nov. 18.
