"However, my next endeavor is 3 Mile Scream's East Coast Massacre tour which will bring us back to the Maritimes for a much more complete and extensive run than our last tour.

The tour of South America is expected to be re-scheduled later in 2008.

Cryptopsy are currently putting the finishing touches on their sixth full-length, The Unspoken King, which will surface through Century Media this summer. The group recently announced the addition of new frontman Matt McGachy (3 MILE SCREAM) and keyboards/samplist Maggie Durand to their lineup.

3 Mile Scream Check In, Reveal New Album Title

3 Mile Scream have issued the following road report following their recent tour of Eastern Canada.

"We just got back from New Brunswick, what awesome times and the shows were totally awesome. We made a lot of new fans, and discovered a whole bunch of fans we never knew we had," says guitarist Alex Delis. "I must say I have never seen that many 'Beware of Moose' signs in my life, it was quite scary and at one point we almost hit a deer. On the way back, when we finally got into Quebec, we hit the tail end of a massive snowstorm and after hitting a snow bank and pothole, we had two flat tires. The police were very helpful, so gave them CDs. Who would have thought the cops helping out a metal band like us? All in all it was a great time and we are already looking forward to going back to Eastern Canada in early 2008."

3 Mile Scream is currently touring in support of their Corporate Punishment debut, "A Prelude To Our Demise." The album was produced by Kataklysm’s Jean-Francois Dagenais and has prompted critical acclaim from critics and artists, including Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe who described the band as "Artfully orchestrated brutality." 3 Mile Scream’s A Prelude To Our Demise can be streamed online in its entirety here.

3 Mile Scream's "Our Blackened Sun" Video Online

3 Mile Scream have posted their Chad Archibald (Arise and Ruin) directed video for the track "Our Blackened Sun" online on YouTube.

"Shooting the video was such an amazing experience to take part in. The director was very easy going and was open to all of our ideas and input," says 3 Mile frontman Matt McGachy. "The only part which was a bit unpleasant was the after effects of shooting for ten hours straight at full tilt. All of our bodies hated us, and they definitely were not shy about letting us know about it."

"The shoot made us realize just how much work goes into the creating a video. It tested our limits physically having to go full tilt, take after take to get it all on film, says 3 Mile Scream bassist Mike Marino. “It was a great experience, the video looks sick and we look forward sharing it with everyone."

The track is taken from the group’s recently released Corporate Punishment debut album, A Prelude To Our Demise. The album has prompted a plethora of critical acclaim from critics and fans, including Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe who described the band as “Artfully orchestrated brutality” and Chris "OJ" Ojeda of Byzantine who said, "Not since STRAPPING YOUNG LAD has Canada had a band put the M in Metal like 3 Mile Scream.

"We just recently shot a video for 'Our Blackened Sun' with director Chad Archibald (Arise and Ruin), which is currently in the final editing stages now.
