Norway's Shining and Hacride have just returned from a European tour with Tides From Nebula and The Ocean. Jørgen Munkeby of Shining comments:
"We don't really do support tours that often, but when something great comes along we'd love to be part of it. This recent European tour was one such great opportunity to tour with three other very varied and unique bands. Even though we were almost thirty people on tour, we somehow managed to get all the bands on stage every night! We loved every day of this tour, and it definitely seemed like the audience did too! Hope to be back in Europe soon!”
Now two video clips are available online of Shining’s lead singer Jørgen Munkeby and Hacride's Luis Roux talking about the European tour. Check them out below. More...

Hacride will be touring Europe in 2013. Check out the tour dates below. Indie Recordings also commented on the band:
"Putting Hacride on equal footing with their early influences would be presumptuous; refusing to let them go would be unfair. For ten years every album of the French crew has represented a move forward, one more step towards musical emancipation. From indie 90’s metal to the syncopated grooves of the early two-thousands, the progressive extreme metal elements that characterized the band have progressively merged into one entity: Hacride is the legitimate son of a different and ingenious generation of extreme modern music.
"Enriched by musical experiences and three critically acclaimed albums; the group has made a strong reputation for themselves by performing at major metal festivals such as Grasspop, Summer Breeze, Metal Camp and Hellfest, along with doing European tours and playing shows in India.
"2013 is a big year for Hacride because not only does it mark the unleashing of a fourth album, but it also marks the launching of a new collaboration for the team now welcoming two members to their ranks, Florent Marcadet (Klone, Step In Fluid, ex-25 ta Life…) on drums and Luiss Roux on vocals."

French progressive metal band HACRIDE has parted ways with original drummer Olivier Laffond and are welcoming new member Mike Roponus (OM MANI) into their ranks.
HACRIDE vocalist Samuel Bourreau explains, "We've been using Mike 's services over the past few months because of Olivier's wife pregnancy. It was originally supposed to be a temporary situation but he decided to quit the band to focus on his new family responsabilities which we perfectly understand. It feels a bit weird for us because we have had the same stable line-up since the band's birth. On top of being a great friend Mike has proved to be one of the best drummer known to us. We are glad to have him as a full member of HACRIDE." More...
