Bolt Thrower has released this bit of news regarding their first trip to the USA in 14 years:

"Due to the fact that we are not real festival lovers or great fans of flying, the chances of us ever coming to the States for a one-off show was always very small. But after years of relentless emails from Ryan we've finally given in. It's hard to believe that it's been 14 years since we last played in the US, so we are very happy to announce that we are finally coming back. Bolt Thrower will be playing Maryland Deathfest VII, on May 22-24, 2009, at Sonar, Baltimore, MD."

A few more bands were exected to be included in this announcement, but the organizers are still working on the details. Therefore, another announcement is expected with even more band confirmations in the near future, as they wrap up the booking process for Maryland Deathfest 2009

Tickets will definitely go on sale on Friday, November 7th.

Psyopus Pull Out of Canadian Tour

Rochester, NY-based tech grindcore/hardcore outfit PSYOPUS has issued the following update:

"We at the PSYOPUS camp feel like real dousche bags but, we are sorry to explain to you that we are going to have to drop off of our Canadian dates with TODAY IS THE DAY, FUCK THE FACTS and COMPLETE FAILURE. Here's the story:"

"Back in January, PSYOPUS was kept from crossing the border for our small January tour. The reason started with the fact Arpmandude (Christopher Arp, guitar) has an attempted criminal mischief in the fourh conviction from 2001, and a violation of probation in 2002 where he served a month in jail. This was a flag warning for a bitch of a bitch of a bitch immigration woman who decided that Arpmandude was a 'risk to Canada.'" More...

Complete Failure Signs To SuperNova Records

SuperNova Records has announced the signing of Complete Failure.

Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Complete Failure features drummer Mike Rosswog, formerly of Today Is The Day and Circle Of Dead Children.

According to SuperNova Records label owner (and Today Is The Day frontman) Steve Austin, "Complete Failure are the future of grind as we know it. Explosive and undeniable, this band is set to become an instant classic when their new record hits stores in 2008."

Complete Failure will record their debut album this fall at Austin Enterprise in Nashville, TN, with Steve Austin producing. The album will see a 2008 release on SuperNova Records. The band will be touring throughout 2008.
