Xandria's Bassist To Miss Upcoming Tour Dates

Xandria has issued the following announcement about the band's bass player having to sit out upcoming live shows:

"Bad luck for our bass guitar player Nils. Whilst we were playing the most recent shows w/Epica, Nils severely hurt his right forefinger on stage which eventually led to a serious blood poisoning after the last show.

"Due to this sepsis he had to undergo surgery twice in the course of the past week, which will now disable him to tour for the upcoming 4-6 weeks. Nils surely is extremely disappointed to not hit the road again in April, but feels comfortable in knowing there is a well-known substitute: Xandria's European tour w/Epica and Stream of Passion in April will now be played with Serenity's Fabio d'Amore, who is happy to fill in on bass guitar for the tour.

"So, no worries, we won't miss a single show. Please come out and support Fabio on his spontaneous new endeavor and wish Nils all the best for a return very soon!"

"Georg: We will definitely have our female guest vocalist...but we’ll let you think about it ;)"

In other news revealed in the interview, the band are currently working on the follow up to the 2011 release "Death & Legacy":

"SOTW: Is Serenity working on a new album already or do you plan to tour longer on the Death and Legacy tour?

"Georg: Actually both! We’re currently working on a lot of new material for our 4th album, but we’re also focusing on our first European headlining tour! Both topics are exciting and take a lot of efforts, but we’re sure it’ll be a blast either ways!"

Serenity Issues Year End Update

Austrian metallers Serenity have issued the following year end update:

"Last news of the old year! Hi folks! It's been quite a while since we've updated things here ... but I'm sure you'll forgive us;))! So here is what's new: SERENITY was ranked #28 out of 40 bands in the readers' poll of German 'Rock It!' magazine (issue No. 55)! Considering the many hundreds of bands which are around that's just not bad!

"Our merchandise Christmas special was a huge success so we've decided to prolong it from tomorrow, January 1st until coming Wednesday, January 6th (Three Kings day or, for our Italian friends, the day of Befana;)). Have a look under 'shop' on our website to view our special prices and send an e-mail to mario.hirzinger@gmx.at if you're interested!

"Some fanatic out there programmed a Serenity song for the computer game 'Guitar Hero', we like that very much and (according to our guitarist) it's also well done. More...

Serenity Issues Road Report

Austrian metallers Serenity have issued the following road report from their current tour:

"Hi, we had another 2 days on the road and what to say??? Everything's just fine!

"Bielefeld/Germany was some kind of strange.... A lot of problems during the whole day for really everybody included into this tour package. No local crew, no stagehands, no lighting tech (I did lights for Threshold ;-), no backstage room (there was a bar where we had dinner and everything - but needed to get out there at around 6 p.m., and much much more.... This is really strange for such a tour - however, though only about 100 people the concert was great as always.

"Pratteln/Switzerland today was great, perfect PA, top lighning engineer, top technics everywhere, a hughe venue, about 350-400 people, perfect. Threshold is still playing their set (a great live band by the way) and SERENITY is just taking a shower (not together ;-)) The best thing on this tour is that we don't need to drive with a van and on our own. Going into the nightliner and don't need to worry on anything is a great feeling again! So no lack of sleep, no big problems. Ahhhhhhhhh great. More...

Serenity Writing New Album

Austrian metallers Serenity have issued the following announcement about working on a new album:

"Serenity will play 2 more gigs in ..Tyrol.. right after our touring activities with Threshold!

14.11.2009 PMK in ....Innsbruck...., support Desert Sin & t.b.a.
21.11.2009 Prägraten in Osttirol, with Emergency Gate and Horizon Divine

"These will be the last shows you will see us promoting our latest album Fallen Sanctuary. We are in the middle of the songwriting process for the next big SERENITY release and we are already working with our producer Oliver Philips of Everon and our artworks designer Gustavo Sazes on the new material. We will take some more time right after the Threshold tour for finishing all new songs and for polishing structures, voice changes, soloing, vocal lines and of course lyrics. This will probably take time till January and we will head to the studio when we are ready. Luckily we are in a position where we are able to enter studio without a fixed time schedule a year ahead. And our preproduction will already include all orchestrations and voicings, so we won't need that much time for orchestrations and these things. This will save us at least 2 months!!!! Status Quo on the songs: 3 songs fixed, another ..4 in.. their final stages, ideas, parts, lines & basic structures for another 4-6 songs, and 2-3 songs were put away (not good enough in our meaning - by the way: we never did that before!)
