HATEBREED have pulled out of the first two dates of the "Headbanger's Ball Tour" — also featuring DAMAGEPLAN, DROWNING POOL and UNEARTH — following the death of their manager Steve Richards (as reported yesterday). HATEBREED's official message on the matter reads as follows:
"This past Sunday, March 21st, we all lost a very special person, a visionary and a true music guy, Steve Richards, our manager, the founder of No Name Worldwide. He was many things to many people, a soul mate, mentor, leader, confidante, brother, and son. His spirit will continue to inspire the ones he blessed with his amazing passion he had for living life.
"We would not be where we are today if it wasn't for Steve. He helped us when no one else would and we loved him like a brother. May he Rest In Peace.
"Due to this horrible loss, HATEBREED has postponed their appearance on the IMX Show and the first two shows of the 'Headbangers Ball Tour'. HATEBREED will now start the tour this Saturday March. 27th in Winston-Salem, NC."
NOTE: HATEBREED's cancellation will *NOT* affect DAMAGEPLAN, DROWNING POOL and UNEARTH's participation in the first two "Headbanger's Ball Tour" dates.

Massachusetts-based metallers UNEARTH have been officially added to the forthcoming "Headbangers Ball Tour II", featuring HATEBREED, DAMAGEPLAN and DROWNING POOL.
"Touring with HATEBREED, the most credible, hard working hardcore/metal band around today is something we have wanted to do since this band's inception," UNEARTH write on their web site. "As a lot of you know, DAMAGEPLAN is the new band featuring Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrel of PANTERA. For me personally it is a dream come true to tour with those guys. PANTERA helped mold heavy music into what it is today and it is a complete honor to hit the road with those dudes."
"Even though our next CD does not come out until June 29th, we just had to take this tour. We want to personally thank [HATEBREED singer] Jamey Jasta for all his help."
"We will be playing a ton of new material on the tour to give everyone a sense of what this record will sound like."
"So far the studio sessions are going great and the best is yet to come. Drums are being recorded as you read this, next will be the guitars, bass and then vocals. Rad stuff ahead."
UNEARTH have started to line up some dates for an upcoming Spring tour. The first date announced is:
April 29th - Knitting Factory - New York, NY
UPDATE: Supporting acts for this show will be A LIFE ONCE LOST and EVERGREEN TERRACE.
In related news UNEARTH's classic album "The Stings of Conscience " is now available on vinyl through Knife or Death Records.
Things have been relatively quiet in The Red Chord camp lately as the band is now focused on completing their next full-length. The album is tentatively entitled "Clients" and is likely to hit stores later this year. The group has been in negotiations with several record labels during the past year and are now nearing a decision following extended negotiations. Meanwhile, The Red Chord has undergone some recent lineup changes as bassist Adam Wentworth recently left the group to join Premonitions Of War, while drummer Mike Justain is now playing with Unearth. Consequently, the band has added bassist Gregory Weeks (Beyond The Sixth Seal) and drummer Jon Down (Dead Water Drowning) to their lineup. Dow will remain in Dead Water Drowning as well, in case you were wondering.
