Turisas Postpones Spanish Shows

After previously announcing new live shows in Spain and Portugal that were scheduled to take place later this month, Turisas has now issued the following update about postponing the dates:

"Due to unforeseen technical problems, Turisas is sad to confirm that they have had to postpone their forthcoming dates in Spain and Portugal. We are working with the local promoters right now to reschedule these shows in November 2011.

"The shows are NOT cancelled and current ticket holders will be able to use their tickets for the rescheduled shows. We are hoping to announce the new schedule in the next 48 hours. Our sincere apologies to all those who have already bought tickets and were looking forward to the shows – we are definitely still coming, just not as soon as we had hoped.

"As some consolation, we can tell that Turisas will be coming to Spain for a one-off special event in June – more details very soon."

Turisas Announces New Tour Dates

Turisas has announced upcoming headlining shows to occur Spain and Portugal. Warlord Nygård comments from the midst of the band's U.S. tour:

"We've always had a very strong support on the Iberian peninsula and we're of course extremely happy about that. Over the years we've often been over there as part of a support act, but we felt we owed our fans in Spain & Portugal some proper headline shows for a change. We've been trying to make this happen for ages, but it's taken time. So now we're definitely coming, make you turn up and show your support! I'm sure we'll have some amazing shows happening! We think this trip will prove that bands could do so much more on the Iberian peninsula, if they had the courage to just go a bit further and explore it. We are super excited about it! Let's paint Iberia black and red together!"

The band will play the following dates:

Spain:
(in cooperation with RockZone Magazine)
17 May Sala Apolo, Barcelona, ES
19 May Sala El Tren, Granada, ES
20 May Sala Heineken, Madrid, ES

Cradle Of Filth Issues Tour Update

Cradle of Filth vocalist Dani Filth has posted the following North American tour update online:

"Ahoy ye abhorrent landlubbers!

"Our royal Ship of Fools has once again crashed upon the welcome rocks of America, only to find it in the steely grip of one of the worst winters on record. Everywhere are freezing, once-scorching desert towns reduced to frozen tundras. Even the tumbleweed in the streets is rolling frozen, and everywhere there are queues and chaos.

"On our first day off Countess Alkaline (our new keyboardist/backing singer), somehow managed to get locked inside a Best Buy store when [the] power was suddenly cut off, and between Houston and Dallas the going on the interstate was so bad due to the ice and blizzard, that the traffic had to halt mid flow. In fact, the Dallas show was close to being cancelled due to attendance fears, indeed on arrival the whole road to the venue was frozen over with a glassy sheet of black ice.

"I had to use my luggage as a makeshift bobsleigh just to get to the door before it was salted! That said it did make for a surreal few days with both the Houston and Dallas shows being really intense affairs and the fans diehard. All the bands on this Creatures From The Black Abyss tour are awesome live too, Turisas, battle metal's most heathen, having played with us for a one off in Mexico City a few days before, airing material from their latest album' Daniel Lioneye make for an eclectic mix of black metal and hardcore with a manic spin (two members moonlighting from gothwampas H.I.M), whilst main supports Nachtmystium are hook laden and dirty and occult ridden thrash through and through.

"So imagine having to play after that lot! Still, the show has only just begun, so people are just beginning to acknowledge one another and teething troubles are still being plucked at. And 'the Crewdle' (our stalwart band of sea-hardened lackeys) are outdoing themselves with the handling of the stage show each and every night, building the laboratory that will feed the monsters. Indeed, the first day in Houston saw the band muck in with some scenery painting, I myself managed to pebble-dash someone's Mustang tailgate, as the wind was pretty erratic and I was out spraying Geoff and Jane our touring skeletons.

"Unfortunately, both some of the Crew(dle) and the band have contracted some sort of stomach virus in Mexico (myself included), rendering the topic of conversation these past few days to who has cramps and who doesn't, who has poo-ed the most times and with which consistency and people fart-testing their deepest fear- that of shitting oneself on stage or in bed. Fortunately myself I have since been three days solid."

"Summer Breeze has already survived a few tremors over the last few years, but the most severe eruption of them all is yet to come. Hatebreed are gearing up to utterly destroy Dinkelsbühl in 2011 with their killer songs. No other band out there combines the attitude and aggression of hardcore and the uncompromising heaviness of metal in such a perfect way. Scene icon Jamey Jasta and his wrecking crew are the epitome of unleashed energy, the embodiment of credibility, the essence of groove, the purest form of brutality, the rulers of all pits and the blueprint for a whole generation, all rolled into one. Please welcome one of the most important and influential bands of the last decade for the first time at Summer Breeze! Hard, harder, Hatebreed!"

The currently announced lineup is as follows: Arch Enemy, Tyr, Kvelertak, Suicidal Tendencies, Bolt Thrower, J.B.O., Witchery, Farmer Boys, Kalmah, Hail of Bullets, Corvus Corax, Hammerfall, Skeletonwitch, Excrementory Grindfuckers, Kampfar, Hayseed Dixie, Turisas, Marduk, Sonic Syndicate, Decapitated, Moonsorrow, Sodom, and Hatebreed.

Turisas Announces New Album Details

Turisas has announced it's new album will be titled "Stand Up and Fight." “’Stand Up And Fight’ is a loose continuation of the story from ‘The Varangian Way’, and picks up where the previous one left us, in Constantinople,” explains mainman Mathias Nygård. “However, it is not a sequel as such. In general, the songs are much more universal and deal with topics that can be placed just as tightly into the modern world as in the 11th century Byzantine Empire. ‘Stand Up And Fight’ has much more to offer the contemporary listener.”

Mathias further commented on the album: "Turisas has always been about progression and evolution, and now with a new album we're not here to repeat ourselves but to have something new to come with - also visually. Our look has developed through the years, and it's never been something we created once to be static forever. Innovation is reinventing yourself regularly. We toured ‘The Varangian Way’ for three and a half years with a look that was tied to the album. With a new release, it was time for a makeover. The visual side has always played a very strong role in Turisas, and fear not - that's not going to change. Stronger than ever, Turisas has returned!"

The title track is currently available as a free download at this location (Facebook or Twitter account required). The "Stand Up and Fight" track listing is as follows: More...
