"The new Godhate video has been launched on youtube. Since I've already got some response on it claiming it to be demoralizing I will tell you that it's not! The song is about living life to it's fullest and don't care for what people might think of it. Life is to enjoy. Many things are symbolic and doesn't mean to encourage people to do bad things and to copy what happens in the video. Think for yourself and think beyond the boundaries."

Sweden's Godhate has issued the following statement regarding canceling the band's upcoming U.S. tour due to immigration issues:
"We are truly sorry to inform that the US tour has been canceled. Due to new immigration rules we have been forced to cancel the whole US tour including festivals in the US. Everything was done and planned in detail but when the new rules took affect it turned out that time wasn't enough to get all papers signed and delivered.
"We have been told that the venues still wants us and our promoter is still working with the tour. It has been said that they are trying to get us there by spring 2011."
It has been announced via myspace that the 2010 edition of the Michigan Deathfest has been cancelled. The cancellation comes due to conflicts with venue changes, band issues and lack of ticket sales.
Promoter 'Metal Mom' issued the following statement:
"The announcement of Michigan Deathfest officially being cancelled was a very difficult one to make. Due to many conflicts starting with the date change, the announcement of Iron Maiden playing close to the fest on the same date, and many more, the show took many hits prior to the original venue change. The venue and date of the event was changed in the best interest of the bands and fans, but we continued to take hits from bands dropping off the bill for various reasons, band break-ups, line-up changes, etc. etc. The final hit for the festival (which probably had the biggest effect on the cancellation) was the overall lack of presale tickets sold and general lack of interest in the event. If fans were planning on attending the festival, we sure didn’t know about it and we apologize for any inconvenience to anyone that did plan on coming, especially if you lost money in the process of planning your trip. Still having one month till the festival date, we tried to give everyone ample notice of the cancellation. St. Andrew’s Hall is working with us to set up a free admission show to make up for the cancellation of the festival. It will feature many of the festival bands. As soon as a date is confirmed we will announce the show. Hope free works for everyone and once again we’d like to apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you very much for your continued support over the last 20 years! ~Metal Mom"

"From the very beginning we had a very good feeling about MAP. The way they acted and their attitude towards us was more than we expected. They were simply the underground label we were looking for. A label with great ambitions and down to earth attitude. They were serious and ready to tell us about their visions whenever we wanted to. We have had this record deal in the works for quite long and we are both relieved to have this contract sealed as much as eager to begin the journey towards higher levels."
