Scar Symmetry Cancels North American Tour

Scary Symmetry announced last month a headlining North American tour set to kick off on November 24th. The band has now issued the following statement about canceling the dates:

"North Americans can we have your attention please! It is with deep regret that we bring you these news: due to unforeseen problems securing our US work visas in time, our North American headlining tour will have to be cancelled.

"The waiting time for a visa interview appointment was several weeks longer than what we've experienced before. Our sincere apologies to Threat Signal, Stealing Axion, Lord of War and Kings Field - you guys rule and we do hope for the opportunity to share a stage with you sometime in a not-to-distant future instead!

"To our fans... we will work our asses off to make this up to you! Expect to see Scar Symmetry back in North America in 2013 - back with a vengeance!"

Stealing Axion Signs With InsideOut Music

InsideOut Music has issued the following announcement about inking a deal with Stealing Axion:

"InsideOut Music is proud to announce the signing of progressive groove metallers STEALING AXION! Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, the band was formed in the winter of 2009 by three friends, Dan Forbrich (vocals, guitar), Josh DeShazo (vocals, guitar), and Phil Willmarth (vocals, bass). By early 2010, the band recorded and released their buzzworthy self-titled EP, while continuing to write and record more material.

"While Stealing Axion circulated around the web, fans and critics praised it for its musical proficiency, atmospheric passages and heavy grooves. The band then enlisted Charlie Shaughnessy (guitar) and Blake Ferris (drums) to round out their lineup while working closely with Acle Kahney (producer, guitarist of TESSERACT, who mixed and mastered these new tracks). STEALING AXION finally had enough material to put together a full length album, entitled Moments, which will now be released through InsideOut Music in 2012!"

In regards to the signing and the exciting year ahead, Stealing Axion comments, "We're beyond excited to join the InsideOut family! We've been listening to bands from this label for years and are thrilled to be working with an amazing team!" More...
