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."

Hatebreed has been confirmed to perform at the 2011 edition of the Summer Breeze Open Air. The festival is set to take place from August 18th - 20th, and additional details can be found here. The organizers of the festival commented:

"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...

Turisas Reveals New Album Details

Finnish symphonic metal act Turisas has set "Stand Up And Fight" as the title of its forthcomingn third album. The new record will be released through Century Media Recordsin North America on February 8, 2011.

Turisas frontman Mathias "Warlord" Nygard commented on the album by saying:

"After a 16-month break from touring, focusing fully on the work on our third album, I'm happy to tell you that we're DONE! The workload has been enormous, and at times I've wished I'd known better, formed a punk rock band and kept things simple! But to achieve real progress, you really have to dig deep and see what you're made of. Take bites so big, you almost choke. We've stayed true to our ideology of releasing music only when we have something new to come out with, not repeating ourselves or just copying what we've done in the past to feed the market. Now that we're done with studios, we're all extremely excited to get back on the road again, and as our latest visit to North America is long overdue, coming over in January with Cradle Of Filth is something we're all very much looking forward to. We had a great time touring with them in Europe in 2009, so this should be killer! Now we only have to figure out how to play these new songs!"

Be'lakor Updates Tour Schedule With Turisas

Australia's Be'lakor has issued the following update about their upcoming tour dates with Turisas:

"Hey everyone, as most of you hopefully know, there has been a change for the Turisas tour. We are still supporting Turisas for their Aussie tour, however, as we announced recently, the Brisbane date (Friday May 21st) has been canceled. (For some reason, despite the fact that we have deleted this show from our tour calender on Myspace, it is still showing up on our page - please IGNORE this date). The problems with the tour were a result of Just Say Rock pulling out of their role as the event promoter/organizer.

"Luckily, Soundwave Touring has taken over the tour - but the Brisbance date has been dropped (this was not our call of course). So, apologies to all Brisbane-based fans. The following dates are still correct: SYDNEY Saturday 22nd May - The Factory Theatre (All Ages), MELBOURNE Sunday 23rd May - Billboard the Venue."
