Divine Heresy Comments On Tour With Moonspell

As was previously announced, Samael have dropped off the upcoming North American tour with Moonspell and have been replaced by Divine Heresy. Also appearing on the bill are Book of Black Earth and Secrets of the Moon.

Commented Divine Heresy guitarist Dino Cazares: "We have been waiting patiently for the perfect touring opportunity to present itself and we couldn't possibly be more pleased to be direct support to the mighty MOONSPELL this fall. This North American tour is exactly what we were looking for as we wanted a chance to perform in front of a lot of new faces that might not have been exposed to our band. This tour marks the kick-off of a massive worldwide touring campaign to support the new 'Bringer of Plagues' album. DIVINE HERESY is better than ever and we are embarking on this tour with only one, simple goal in mind: to annihilate everything in our path. Expect an unrelenting set and if your jaw isn't on the floor when we finish, then we haven't done our job, but that won't be the case. Be sure to come by the merch booth each night to say hello to us all and we look forward to seeing everyone soon. It's certainly been way too long."

Switzerland’s Samael will no longer be appearing alongside Moonspell on their North American tour this October/November. Taking their place will be Divine Heresy.

Samael has issued the following statement:

“Unfortunately SAMAEL will not be able come to North America this fall along with MOONSPELL. We’ve checked into every possibility with our booking agent and partners at Nuclear Blast but the financial costs are too deep into the red to make things work. We’d like to apologize to all our fans who were looking forward to seeing SAMAEL live but rest assured that we are looking into coming over again in early 2010. We also want to express our deepest regret to our friends in MOONSPELL.”

Moonspell Issues Band Update

Moonspell has issued the following update about upcoming tours and planning a new album:

"Dear all

"As you know I am always involved in new projects. It's the kind of crazy man I am. But I feel so many artistic motivations that is hard to keep them to myself. Goes without saying that Moonspell is my main priority and outlet and always be. Whoever doubts that, doubts my integrity and I all I give and receive from this band. This post is not for you then. We just came back from an intense, hard but successful tour, where, every night, we had a HUGE response to our shows and songs. We are thankful to everybody who attended the shows and gave so much of themselves. We are happy to inform that we are on the verge of confirming another tour in North America as well as few dates in South America, between October and November, as well as some dates for Russia before the festivals. More detail will follow soon, stay tuned.

"After that tour is finished we intend to write a new album to be recorded and released in 2010. We will also make a decision over the plan of having an acoustic album for Moonspell.

"As for related news, the Fado project Fernando is involved made number #1 in Portuguese charts and has maintained this position for the second week in a row. Following up are some news in Portuguese, for Portuguese and Brazilian friends, that deal, in general, with some of the band showcases in stores and promo activity."

Moonspell Cancels Belarus Tour Dates

Portugal gothic metal band, Moonspell, has canceled their upcoming shows in Belarus. The band comments on the cancellation:

"We are extremely disappointed by the fact we had to cancel the shows. The reasons on both Neopolis and COF site is accurate but Moonspell might add that the bands' buses entered Belarus territory and were meeting for possible solutions for the day. On the event that the truck with ALL of our tour equipment was held due to a bureaucratic detail in the border made all our efforts worthless." More...
