DISFEAR's Marcus Andersson commented on the upcoming tour; "Once again we team up with our brothers in Doomriders and hit the road. But this time on our side of the Atlantic! We've been looking forward to this for quite some time now and we're stoked that it's finally happening." More...
To celebrate their long standing friendship, Disfear and Doomriders have paired up to release a brand new limited split 7" EP, a joint effort between Disfear's own self ran label, Disfear Records (European territories) and Doomriders' label home, Deathwish (all other territories).
