Commented the band:
Additionally we have also done two more own songs ("Full-Blown Revenge" and "The Torrent") which will be used as bonus tracks for some special editions of the release. We are also working on compiling some live material for a special limited-edition bonus DVD and we will also be shooting a video clip for the new album. We also had a media listening session set up by Nuclear Blast Records some weeks ago, where metal journalists from all over Europe had a chance to hear the new "Issue VI" material already and it was good to receive so much positive feedback!
In the coming weeks, we will be posting the new album's cover artwork, some new band photos as well as more details on the release here for you. We are also already debuting a good amount of new songs on the coming shows (we did 4 new tracks in Hamburg last week, actually). A full European tour in in the works for late summer/early autumn, so just hold your breath ;-)
And, oh yeah, we have a very special CD-release show scheduled for Friday, June 24th in Braunschweig, Germany (Location: Fireabend): We will play 'back home' for the first time in looong years that night and bring along our friends Heaven Shall Burn, A Traitor Like Judas and Killfuck for an intense show. Be there!!!
Right now, we will be leaving to play shows this weekend in Antwerpen, Paris and Tilburg as part of the 'No Mercy' tour. See some of you there!
