Ektomorf Posts "Unscarred" Video

Ektomorf has released a new music video for the song "Unscarred," which can be viewed below. The band has also issued the following announcement about a lineup change:

“Sadly Mike had to quit for family reasons. It was a great time with him playing music and we are still friends. There’s no bad blood between us at all. I had the intention to call Tamàs (Schrottner), our previous guitar player, again after two years. We had a great fucking talk the very next day. He joined us on the 'Unscarred' video shoot and now Tamàs is back in the band. We had a killer rehearsal and we are ready to kick asses on the 'Black Flag' tour! See ya all soon!”

The "Unscarred" track comes off the band's new album "Black Flag," released on August 31st, 2012.

Onslaught Forced To Cancel German Shows

The following message has been posted on Onslaught's official Myspace page:

"Onslaught have regrettably been forced to cancel the final 5 shows of their current German tour with 'Ektomorf' due to continuing breaches of contract by ROCKFALLS PROMOTIONS (Stefan Freund).

"Sy Keeler says 'the organisation behind the tour has again been nothing short of shambolic from day 1. The problems started with transportation and equipment and ended with non payment of our fees and expenses. The Night liner company has not been paid and the tour is being kept afloat at this time by the Tour Managers' own personal finances. We had persevered with the difficulties for the first 9 shows but felt it was impossible for us to continue in the circumstances and have been forced to make this very difficult and sad decision...

"We deeply apologise to our fans in Germany for any disappointment and inconvenience they may encounter because of Mr Freund's disgraceful behaviour. We will return to your great country in February for 3 shows with our good friends 'Sabbat' which will be organised and promoted in a totally professional manner..
This matter is now in the hands of our legal team...

"See you all soon…..'
Danke Schoen

"PS - We would like to say a massive 'Thank You' to Frank & Steffen from the great band 'Days of Grace' who took time out to drive us back to the U.K... Your friendship and your thoughtfulness was awesome guys .. Danke. We owe you..!!! "
