UNEARTH's scheduled performance at the Cricket Club in Irvington, NJ on Saturday (Sept. 25) was cancelled after "a ton of fights" broke out during openers TERROR's set, causing the show to be shut down. "We sincerely apologize to everyone who paid money to see us play," UNEARTH write on their web site. "We will do our absolute best to come back and make it up to everyone in Jersey."
UNEARTH are touring in support of their latest album, "The Oncoming Storm", available now on Metal Blade Records. The follow-up to 2001's "The Stings Of Conscience" was produced by Adam Dutkiewicz of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE fame.
Unearth arrived home from Ozzfest but the band has not stopped working. Unearth are gearing up to practice for their first headline tour.
To say the least, guitarist Ken Susi is very enthusiastic about the tour. "It is invigorating to finally have our first headline tour; we are so excited to play our first full set."
Unearth just came off of the biggest tour, this summer's Ozzfest 2004 - "I must admit that we learned a lot watching the other headline bands this summer, Ozzfest felt like the proving ground for us and I am confident that we are a better band from the Ozzfest experience and are now a more professional career band. Expect to see Unearth at its best we will play our hardest every night."
Vocalist Trevor Phipps is psyched by the lineup and the fact that the band are headlining a club tour, " I am stoked about this tour package, I will get to watch three amazing bands every night; I am also thrilled to play small clubs again - this is where we come from."
Unearth update from Trevor:
Our show at Brew Ha-Ha’s in Winston-Salem, North Carolina has been changed to Ziggy’s. Our tour will now be playing with Shadows Fall, The Haunted, Candiria and All That Remains on that date only. Tickets should be on sale for all the shows on our upcoming US headlining run. Make sure to pick up your tickets before they are gone. Tour starts in two weeks! See you all soon.
Here's from the official Unearth site:
As most of you know the last date of this summer's Ozzfest was cancelled in West Palm Beach, Florida due to Hurricane Frances. It sucks for both the fans waiting to attend the concert and the bands wanting to go out with a bang live and actually get to have one last night of the greatest Ozzfest to date. Mother nature didn't want it to happen, so it is done a day early. Please everyone in Florida be safe!
We had a blast all summer long playing to huge crowds (in the a.m. mostly), meeting the fans, hanging with the second stage bands, watching Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Slayer on a nightly basis, and flat out just having the time of our lives. We will always remember Ozzfest 2004. Thanks to everyone who made it happen.
See you all on the road this fall. The new dates are up for our headlining run with Terror, The Black Dahlia Murder and Remembering Never.
Here are all of the dates for the Unearth, Terror, The Black Dahlia Murder, Remembering Never tour: More...
Unearth vocalist Trevor Phipps has issued this tour update:
We can't thank people enough for making the entire summer kick ass so far. The shows have been amazing, the bands have all fucking ruled and there has been plenty of dice rolling, golf cart mishaps and classic metal barbeque parties. We have under two weeks left on Ozzfest and we will soon be gearing up for our full US headlining tour starting September 23rd with Terror, The Black Dahlia Murder and Remembering Never. Dates for that tour will be available this week. See you all on the road soon.
Here are some more dates for Unearth's tour with Terror, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Remembering Never. More dates are on the way.
September 23 - Poughkeepsie, NY @ The Chance
September 24 - Worcester, MA @ Palladium
September 25 - South Amboy, NJ @ Club Krome
September 28 - New York, NY @ The Knitting Factory
October 6 - Denver, CO @ Rock Island

I've finally got my photos from the second stage of Ozzfest on Sunday July 18 in Bristow, VA posted. You can check them out in the photo gallery.
On Sunday, July 18, 2004 I enjoyed one of the best Ozzfests I've witnessed at the Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, Virginia, despite a day that started off pretty bad. To put it all in perspective, I'll start at the beginning. I awoke to prepare for the day and immediately noticed that my right eye which was slightly irritated the day before was swollen half shut. After 30 minutes or so of being awake, I was developing a serious headache from the pressure of my swollen eyelid being open. Although I had fully intended to arrive at Ozzfest by 9:30 and see every band perform, I quickly resigned to going in to the hospital to have my eye checked out. The decision was an easy one because the headache was already terrible and I could only imagine the situation worsening throughout the day as dust, rain, sweat, and/or sun screen got into my eyes.
After two hours in the hospital to get some antibiotic eye drops, I was on my way. One side effect of the eye infection was that I was forced to wear glasses instead of contacts, which totally sucks - it's kind of hard to headbang with glasses on.
Factoring in travel time, I arrived at Ozzfest just two hours into the show. The weather was overcast and comfortably cool 70's. They were calling for a 60% chance of rain, but the weather was holding, despite passing through some rain on the drive to Bristow. More...
Launch.com has a video for Unearth's new single 'The Great Dividers', from the album 'The Oncoming Storm'.
Unearth posted an update on the bands site regarding yesterday's Ozzfest no show.
"Hello Cyberspace. First of all we would want to apologize to all of you who went to the Ozzfest in Columbus, Ohio to see us. We could not make it due to bus problems. First a flat tire, then the brakes went out. So needless to say, it was a very exciting night. There will be a make up show. We promise. For all the rest of you that we are going to be seeing soon, make sure to check out www.ozzfest.com to see when we are going to be playing. Lamoyne, PA knows how to rock. The show last night with Everytime I Die at championship records has to have been tone of the hottest shows we have ever played. EVER!!! So thank you to all of you who stuck around to get sweaty with us. "
P.S. We will be playing at 9:55 AM at the Starwood Amphitheatre in Antioch, TN July 22, 2004 and at 10:20 at the Coors Amphitheatre in Englewood, CO July 24, 2004"
Every Time I Die share the bus with Unearth so one would assume they missed the fest as well.

So, after quite some time and many doubts I have finally decided to share my thoughts about this year's Ozzfest. Actually, it's my first time on this festival since I'm from Europe and I've only been living in U.S. for two years now. Please, do consider this as you read along :)
I got to the Tweeter Center around 10:15 in the morning. Being my first time there, I wasn't sure how the whole thing was gonna go. The first thing that looked very weird were all those people on the parking lot who had brought BBQs and coolers and were hanging out by their cars. Very American, I thought. More...
Our very own Gothique was at Ozzfest in Mansfield, Massachusetts at the the Tweeter Center on July 12 and sent a load of pictures from second stage of the show (hardly anyone is allowed to take pics of the main stage bands). Check em out over at the gallery page.
Some setlist info is starting to filter in from bands at this years Ozzfest. Here they are so far:
Someone's Standing On My Chest
Right Side of The Bed
Lip Gloss and Black

ATREYU's "Curse" registered a first-week tally of 34,144, landing at No. 32, while UNEARTH's "The Oncoming Storm" shifted 13,285 copies to enter the chart at No. 105. Elsewhere, NEUROSIS' "The Eye of Every Storm" premiered with a first-week total of 2,074.
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.
