New York death metal band In The Casket has made an announcement about a new/returning band member as well as an update on their next release. Here it is straight from the band:
"All of us from In the Casket want to welcome a 6th member to the band, we recently brought in Kyle Hendrickson to fill multiple roles in the band. Kyle will be focusing on keyboard as well as third guitar. We have been working for the last month to get everything ready so Kyle can play his first show with us in Feb 2012. We have been considering bringing in keyboards for a while but it was hard since not every one of our songs will play nice with keyboard, this is why Kyle is a perfect addition since he can also play guitar when keyboard isnt needed. Kyle is not new to In the Casket though, he is an old friend and he played 2nd guitar with us in 2009 and also rcorded and played bass tracks on the 2009 EP. Besides playing with ITC in the past Kyle has also played in Wasteform, Balls Deep, and other notable 518 metal bands.
"We also have an actual website now for anyone that hasn't checked it out, it can be found at inthecasket518.com and we have a bunch of free downloads on the audio page. We are also very excited for some of the upcoming shows in 2012 as well as other big news we will be announcing as soon as we are allowed to. We go into the studio in Feb also and will be releasing a 5 track - 35 minute album in the spring and then another one before the end of the year that will be longer. We hope to see many people out at the upcoming shows, lately the turnouts have been awesome and we appreciate everyone that supports us! Keep an eye out on are sites for new info and news that will be coming soon! Merry Christmas to everyone as well and prepare for 2012!"
Wasteform has announced the cancellation of their planned European tour. Frontman and core member Greg Kennedy released this statement on the matter:
"We are very sorry we have to cancel our upcoming tour on such short notice but there was nothing we could do with my health problems and drummer Bryan Mearons Family issues, this was the only thing we could do. We would like to thank Vladimir Prokos for setting up another killer tour for us and apologize immensely to him for canceling 2 weeks before the beginning of the tour. Vladimir has put a lot of hard work into this tour and we are very are upset we have to cancel.
"Wasteform plans on celebrating our 10 year anniversary with a makeup tour before the end of 2011 though, so we will see all of our European friends and fans soon. We are hoping to come back over to Europe in October or November and play in all of the cities we canceled. Wasteform will also be working on a new album and hope to have it finished before we come back. Thank you for all your support and we will see you soon. Fleshless will still play the tour in May/June as planned so be sure to check them out, they are brutal. See you all soon. Stay sick and thanks for supporting Wasteform."

With newly acquired guitarist Justin Knipper (Mucopus), Wasteform plan to re-release their debut full-length album "Crushing The Reviled" with a one-album deal on Nice To Eat You Records (Czech Republic) which will include a remastered album with new artwork and 4-5 bonus tracks consisting of previously unreleased demos, live tracks and newly recorded cover songs (Neglect's "L.S.S" and Brutal Truth's "Dementia").
