Frontman MIRAI KAWASHIMA says, "We've played several times in the U.S. before, but this is our first full U.S. tour and we're really looking forward to it! This is going to be a great opportunity for our fans to see a full SIGH set. As you know, we're are going out on the road with two great bands: ZIMMERS HOLE and UNEXPECT. I'm a fan of both bands and excited to share the stage with them. Be sure to check out all the tour dates online as there have been a few changes and additions. We hope to see all the SIGH fans out on tour as this has been a long time coming. We're going to play the songs off Hangman's Hymn and there will be lots of older songs in our set list -- and of course some Venom covers! Come see us or you will regret it forever!"

In other news, SIGH's upcoming six-song tribute to legendary black metal band VENOM, titled "Sigh's Tribute to Venom," will feature the bass work of Dan Lilker (BRUTAL TRUTH, NUCLEAR ASSAULT) and Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, VENOMOUS CONCEPT)

Warbringer Issues European Tour Update

Warbringer has just finished their European tour with Napalm Death and Suffocation and issued the following update:

"Just finished off the Napalm Death/Suffocation European tour a couple days ago. Long story short, it fucking slaughtered. First time for us touring overseas, and our first time touring in a bus. Had a big ol red nightliner bus with bunks and all that, which is way luxurious compared to the van touring we are accustomed to. It fit like 20 people, Napalm, Suffo, us, and crew. Everyone in both bands were awesome fellas, there wasn't really any problems with any anybody on the tour. The European fans and people at the venues were way friendly, and that coupled with the fact that we were traveling the world, going to all these different countries made it one of the coolest things any of us have done, ever. Some highlights of the tour were Frank "the tank" Mullen yelling at people to jump off bridges all day at Rock Hard festival, the brotherhood of spoon tattoos, Ryan's (possibly) fictional tapeworm that made him eat like 20 sandwiches a day, the raging fucking maniacs who went berserk in places like Portugal and Poland, and any day we were in the Netherlands/the few days after with Terrence, Joe, AK, etc. Anyhow, tomorrow we start up a couple more firsts- our first headlining tour and our first shows in the UK, with Gama Bomb supporting. We'll see you all out there, cheers!"

Enemy Soil's "Casualties Of Progress" EP Reissue

Northern Virginia's ENEMY SOIL will see the reissue of their "Casualties Of Progress" EP later this month via Relapse. This reissue of "Casualties Of Progress," which was previously released on vinyl only, has been remastered and features the original artwork with the addition of liner notes from ENEMY SOIL's Richard Johnson and AGOROPHOBIC NOSEBLEED's Jay Randall. The reissue also features rare bonus tracks including three previously unreleased ENEMY SOIL tracks as well as a cover of NAPALM DEATH's "Unchallenged Hate."

ENEMY SOIL's Johnson recently commented on the reissue: "Working on the reissue of the Casualties Of Progress 7" with Relapse brings back fond memories of all the support they put behind Enemy Soil in the 90s. And here it is finally back in print, on CD for the first time, with bonus tracks to boot. Even the original artwork graces the sleeve." "When I first heard the recording again after Scott Hull was finished with his remaster, I was taken aback at how youthful and primitive it sounded." Johnson adds; "Casualties of Progress is one of the records that Enemy Soil is most identified with, and I'm bloody chuffed that Enemy Soil fans that missed out on it the first time around, or want to hear it again in this new form, have a chance to do so, over a decade after the original release."

The Casualties Of Progress reissue will see a May 27th North American (June 2nd international) release date. Further information on this release, including pre-order options, can be found via the release page.

Walls Of Jericho Leave Devildriver Tour

WALLS OF JERICHO have posted the following update:

“We can honestly say that it is a huge disappointment on our end. This has been a tour that we have been extremely excited about and looking forward to for several months and to back out was very tough for us. However our label (Trustkill Records) has decided to pull tour support funding for this tour as they feel finishing our next record is the number one priority. Our management and label both feel that we need to be writing our new record in preparation for a spring recording and with this tour we just don’t have enough time to accomplish all things. With that said the decision has been handed down and we are forced to cancel. However, this will ensure a summer/late summer release for our new as yet untitled full-length record which we have been working very hard on as of late and should turn out to be nothing short of incredible. The extra time devoted to this record is going to pay off big time and we should be able to come out with a record we can truely be proud of and excited about. We would like to apologize to all the bands on this tour for pulling out so late and we would like to also apologize to all the people who were looking forward to seeing us in the next few weeks.”

"New" Nasum Album Coming This Year

COLDWORKER/ex-NASUM drummer Anders Jakobson has issued the following update:

"So how about this — there will be a new NASUM album in 2008! Yes, a final album and then nothing more. It's the live recording from Japan 2004 that has been in the archives for quite a while. It's a little bit confusing but I'll try to explain everything as clear as possible:"

"First, there will be a split with NAPALM DEATH, a limited-edition picture disc released by Feto very soon... Can't really be specific about the release date at this point."

"Then, the NASUM side of the split will be a stand-alone CD called 'Doombringer' on Relapse. This is a digipack release that apart from the 16 songs also will include Mitch Harris video for 'Scoop' and liner notes by me. The album will be released March 4th and can be pre-ordered from Relapse now. There might be an LP version of 'Doombringer' as well; I have at least OK'd the artwork for the LP."

Here is the "Doombringer" (cover artwork) track listing: More...

J2 Signs To The End Records

The End Records has signed the new project entitled J2, featuring enigmatic singer/songwriter/performer Jarboe and Justin Broadrick, frontman for ambient/progressive noise project Jesu.

Jarboe is known for her 14 years work with the legendary NYC East Village ArtRock band Swans, as well as her recent musical collaborations with such bands as Jesu, Neurosis and A Perfect Circle. Broadrick, who joined pioneering U.K. grind band Napalm Death at the age of 15, formed the influential metal/industrial act Godlflesh in the late-80s and in 2003 started up his current band Jesu.

"When I met Justin, he commented upon the impact and influence of Swans upon his music. We did a concert together in London in 2005 and began discussing working together. I had also been drawn to the unique energy of Jesu and so this was exciting to explore."

The J2 album will be released in the spring of 2008.
