Terror Announce New Members, Tour and Release

Terror have posted a lengthy update regarding touring, upcoming releases, and the addition of a new guitar player. Here you go:

"We just returned from our first tour of Mexico... it was pretty insane to say the least. The shows were out of control, kids were out of there minds, and we saw some out of this world outside of the shows. I never thought in my life I'd see a car in the parking lot after a Terror show selling bootleg Terror shits out of a trunk, but it happened. Nick was happy to take a bunch from the dude as our cut.

Coming up on the touring front we have Saturday night at the New England Metal Fest, April 29th. After that we are off to Brazil for four shows with our friends Born From Pain. Then directly to the UK and Europe for the Sounds of the Underground tour there with the one and only Madball (also Unearth and Chimira). Back to the USA for a three week run with Death Before Dishonor and lastly the whole US and Canada on Sounds of the Underground with As I Lay Dying, Gwar, Cannibal Corpse, Black Dahlia Murder and many more. We will also hit Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Puerto Rico when the new record is out. We cant wait to get back on the road.

July 4th is the day our new record 'Always The Hard Way' hits the streets. It's 14 new tracks, recorded at Planet Z and features guest spots from Eddie Sutton of Leeway, Aaron The Knuckles from Death Threat, and Murs & Mr. Dibbs for any of you hip hop heads. We can't wait to get this out so everyone can hear it. Trustkill is putting it out in the US, Roadrunner in Europe, UK, Japan, and Austraila, Lockin' Out will be doing the vinyl for North America and Reflections for Europe.

May 30th, Trustkill releases our first ever DVD, 'The Living Proof.' It has a full set from London with a new song, studio stuff, a bunch of funny bullshitting, interviews and lots of show footage from around the world. It's all completed and it came out amazing, so check it out. The DVD also comes with some cool extra packaging and a coupon for money savings on the new CD.

Lastly, we want to let everone know Terror has had some member changes over the last few months. Today we have finally again solidified the Terror line up and it is no doubt the strongest to date. Scott, Nick and Doug have been holding it down now for years. Our new bass player is Jonathan Buske who has played with The Promise, Rag Men, and Another Victim, and we now also have Martin Stewart as our second guitarist. He is curently in one of our favorite bands, Donnybrook! and also sings for LION.

Life is good and Terror is set up for alot of fun times for the rest of this year. See you all soon on the road."

Father Of Man Killed At Show Looking For Answers

C.T. Revere of the Tucson Citizen is reporting that the father of the man fatally shot outside a hardcore/metal show on December 7 in Tucson, Arizona has written a letter to Tucson Mayor Bob Walkup asking several hard questions: Why was his son portrayed as a "violent hoodlum" after being shot to death outside a youth club downtown?

Why did Tucson police give his son's girlfriend the impression that 27-year-old Ray Darrin Pierson "deserved to be dead" when they spoke with her outside Skrappy's nightclub?

And why, the grieving Tempe father asks, did he learn of his son's death through media reports and not directly from Tucson police?

The pain Jeff Pierson, 52, feels over the loss of his son is made greater by feeling that he is miscast in death.

"What I've read and what I've heard from his friends and those who were there just doesn't reconcile - nor does it reconcile with what I know of my son," Pierson said. "I don't believe what I've read in the newspapers, and I don't believe, necessarily, what I've heard."

There's not much police or reporters can do to ease the sense of loss and shock that accompanies a homicide, but leaving questions unanswered falls far short of that goal.

News reports focused on Darrin Pierson's affiliation with a group called FSU, which stands for "Friends Stand United" or an alternate phrase that refers to making a mess of things (Fuck Shit Up).

He also was part of "Team Loco," a Phoenix-area group started by friends with shared interest in extreme sports.

"I don't know anything about FSU," his father said. "Team Loco was started by a neighborhood friend as sort of an extreme sport clothing group. I think it's expanded to something more. It's a big group of young people, and I know a few of them. I can't imagine it being anything to do with harming other people."

When we know more we will let you know so please don't believe everything you read on message boards. The tour will continue as scheduled tonight in Las Vegas."

Man Killed at Donnybrook, Shattered Realm Show

One man was shot to death and several others injured (one individual was hit in the head with a hammer) after a fight broke out during a show on The Street Brutality Tour featuring Shattered Realm, Donnybrook and Hoods in Tucson, Arizona last night. The incident occured at Skrappy's, which bills itself as an alcohol- and drug-free club for people under 21. Police said they have had few calls for problems there.

The man fatally shot at a music club last night as Ray Darrin Pierson, 27, of Mesa. Pierson was in Tucson to see Shattered Realm. He was shot outside the club after a fight involving at least 20 people inside the venue, said Sgt. Ramon Batista, a Tucson Police Department spokesman. Pierson died at a hospital. Several other people were injured according to Batista, but he declined to discuss details.

Homicide detectives are trying to interview everyone who was at the Shattered Realm show - up to 200 people. Detectives found a handgun outside the club, but won't say who was carrying it. No one has been arrested so far. Police are asking anyone who was at the show and anyone who may have information about the fight and shooting to call 911 or 88-CRIME, the anonymous tip line of the Pima County Attorney's Office.

Several emails to Lambgoat.com owners suggest that the fight was between local hardcore kids and FSU members.

Skrappy's doors were locked this morning, and no one appeared to be inside.
