Heathen Added To Destruction Tour

German thrash metal veterans Destruction have announced that Destroyer 666 will be unable to participate in the band's scheduled tour of North America this April, because guitarist and vocalist K.K. Warslut will be undergoing surgery on a torn ACL. Replacing them on the bill will be fellow thrash legends Heathen, who released their first new album in nineteen years, "Evolution Through Chaos" last year.

Speaking on the tour's lineup, Destruction front man Schmier stated:

"Destruction wishes Keith a safe and quick recovery! In the meantime, we are really happy to announce their old friends Heathen as a replacement for Deströyer 666! These Bay Area thrashers are one of my favorite thrash bands of all time and we will be sharing the European stages with them in some weeks on the Killfest tour. It's fantastic to have an opportunity to tour with old friends on both sides of the globe! German and Bay Area thrash together on tour - how much more kick-ass can it get?! I can't wait to hit the road again now, hope to see you all out there!"

"Hails 'n thanks are not enough for those who made most of the shows on this tour fucking KILLER! We couldn't have asked to have done it with a better, more dedicated and honest band. And alongside an incredible crew. Our gratitude to all.

"The following folks deserve special mention for making it all the more worthwhile: Essen, Liverpool, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Bucharest, Sofia, Warsaw, Krakow, Vienna, Linz, Malmoe, Oslo, and Stockholm.

"The band will now rest restore and one day rehearse for the following album. A word of thanks to all those who bought out the recent LP and 7" so damned quick. Any who failed to pick up a tour shirt can write the bands website merch address. NOT myspace. Fuck the world."

Destroyer 666 Comments On Upcoming Watain Tour

Destroyer 666 has issued the following statement about the band's upcoming tour dates with Watain:

"Werewolves, Whisky n Watain. Just a few nights til the hunt begins my friends. The band will have copies of the now sold out 7" available to sell on tour. We are putting a one 7" per person limit on it, due to the amount of CUNTS out there who like to buy things dirt cheap and then flog them online for stupid amounts of money. Go back to selling stamps you faggots. We will also have copies of 'To the Devil his Due' LP Tour edition (Red marble vinyl). Same story as above. Breathe deep, eyes straight ahead."

Destroyer 666 Issues Tour Recap

Destroyer 666 has checked in with the following recap of the band's recent tour dates:

"Said and Done. What to say now, back home, battered, bruised and stewed. The tail end of the tour was just fucking incredible. Great crowds wherever we landed. I think Montreal must get special mention, I know there were a bunch of Quebeccans there too, but one hell of a fucking crowd. For me personally one of the best Ive ever experienced. And yet another special thanks to the owner there, she treated us very well indeed, and was most patient with my repeated drunken disregard for rules n regulations. Again sorry mate. Your a bloody champ.

"We again got to work with our good friend Jon for a show in Rhode Island which, as last year did not disappoint at all. Cheers Jon. NYC, well, this pack have always been good to us, and being the final show of the tour it was a fitting end. Mad, Loud and wild wolves one n all. I'd like to give special thanks to the woman who set that up for us and looked after us so well. I've forgotten ya name sorry mate.

"Our friend Tomas took us out for an after party the end of which I have no recollection of. My apologies to anyone unfortunate enough to have born the brunt of what apparently was horrible ending in fire. This tour was undoubtedly our best in terms of the support of the die-hard fans. It was also a great learning curve in terms of what to expect form the so called professionals who milk the scene for their own profit and treat bands like shit. But more on that later. More...

Destroyer 666 Comments On Canceled Shows

Destroyer 666 has issued the following statement about being forced to cancel shows at the beginning of the band's current tour:

"Well, things are on track again, and the missed shows have been rebooked for the end of the tour as far as I know. Best check your local promoter as I've come to believe nothing and no one on this tour. Sadly, and I guess predictably, the gossiping retards that infest this planet have come to their own deranged ideas as to why we could not play.

"Its infuriating, but eventually laughable at just how gullible and stupid people can be. The truth of the matter is our driver who was supposed to turn up at 10am turned up at midnight. Plain, simple, mundane and,yes very annoying. Totally beyond our control. The first few days of this tour were some of the most agonizingly mismanaged Ive ever had the misfortune to be forced to be put thru.

"We've all been to shows that have been canceled, and its not great. Not as bad as a loved one getting gang raped by 13 Dobbermans, but not great no. And believe me, much worse for us. The amount of money we had to pay for this clusterfuck of a tour goes into the 1000s of EUROS. So our condolences to those who lost some petty cash and those who traveled some distance for the show. But there was simply nothing we could do about it. More...

Destroyer 666 Cancels Two U.S. Shows

Destroyer 666 has issued the following statement about canceling two upcoming U.S. tour dates and changing the upcoming New York show:

"U.S. Tour - some cancellations due to cluster fucking beyond our realm of control, the first two shows of the current U.S. tour have had to be canceled. The NYC show has been moved to the 31/8/2010. There are no plans as far I know to reschedule the Jaxx show in Washington. To apologize would seem to me to admit fault and responsibility on our part, to apologize on behalf of others just seems retarded. We hope to see you at the amended date."
