HistoryEdit

The friends previously performed music in hardcore punk bands together prior to forming Xibalba. In 2012, the band went on an Australian tour with Warbrain and Incendiary.[4] In 2013, they traveled with the "No Way Out" U.S. tour with headliners The Acacia Strain, and Within the Ruins, Fit for an Autopsy, and American Me.[6] Xibalba was toured on the "Die Knowing" U.S. tour alongside Comeback Kid, Backtrack, Downpresser, and To the Wind.
