California metallers Saviours have issued the following update about upcoming tour dates:
"Our new album, Accelerated Living, is out now! Go to a record store or here to get it. 50 minutes of new heavy apocalyptic jams on CD or 45RPM double LP. Phil Manley recorded Accelerated Living at Lucky Cat in San Francisco this past June and it came out fucking killer.
"The past month of shows with Saint Vitus, Kylesa, Red Fang, Bison BC and now 3 Inches of Blood has been insanely great. Many thanks to all those bands and everyone who has been coming out to party with us. More US dates with 3 Inches of Blood and Holy Grail through December 5 have been posted and dates for Europe and Japan for early 2010 will be available soon!
"Check out the FALL INTO DARKNESS festival this Halloween weekend in Portland, OR and the FOG RISING show in San Francisco on November 7. All killer shows! Thanks for the support!"

Vancouver's Bison b.c. has checked in with a fairly extensive blog recapping the tour with Kylesa, Tombs, Saviours and Red Fang this fall. Here's an exerpt from the blog:
"Sep 11 '09 (Vancouver BC @ Commodore):
I always love kicking off a tour with a show in Vancouver. It's great to have one last chance to get completely loser pissed with our friends before we hit the road for however long. This time we were fortunate enough to finally share the stage with local good 'ol boys The Golers and old pals 3 Inches of Blood. The Golers have been around forever and everyone should fucking hear them. They're basically Vancouver's Venomous Concept: relentless, break-neck speed pummeling. Is grind-punk a genre?
"Show was fucking fun as all hell. It was 3 Inches record release show for 'Here Waits Thy Doom' (which may or may not feature all of us doing back ups on the song 'Preacher's Daughter') and the place was packed! The cap of the Commodore is somewhere between 950 and 1000 and apparently it was like 15 tickets away from being sold out. Jesse from local grinders Zuckuss pointed out how fucking crazy it is that three local bands brought that many metal heads out of the woodwork. The night was bitter sweet though because not only was our good friend Ian unable to be there because of surgery but that night would also be my last chance to ever set foot in local punk/metal institution the Cobalt. I can't even describe how awesome that bar and the staff are. The thought that it's getting shut down by the fucking slum lords that own the building so they can cash in on Olympic fever makes me wanna tear someone's head off. I'm consoled by the fact that i know bar legend/honcho Wendy 13 will soon enough have a new venue i can crawl out of at 5am reeking of jager bombs. COBALT FOREVER!"

3 INCHES OF BLOOD is back with their new album, "Here Waits Thy Doom," and a massive worldwide touring schedule. The group just completed a lengthy, highly successful North American tour alongside In Flames, Between The Buried and Me, and The Faceless. The group immediately followed this up with a few headlining shows, which kick off on Oct. 7th and run through Oct. 29th.
3 INCHES OF BLOOD will take about two weeks off before hitting the road once again assuming the headlining role on a BloodyDisgusting.com sponsored trek with Saviours and Holy Grail in the support slots. This kicks off on November 13th and will be the last U.S. run until the spring of 2010.
In other band news, the group recently shot a video for the album’s vicious lead-off cut, "Battles and Brotherhood," that was produced and directed by the acclaimed Rick Podd, who has worked on such movies as "The Watcher" and "Hellraiser." The clip basically features the band set in the middle of a medieval battle and also showcases their acting abilities. Stay tuned to BloodyDisgusting.com over the next week for an exclusive video teaser to give you a little taste as to what’s to come with the full-length clip.
Cam Pipes (vocals) states: “We're off to a pretty good start in support of Here Waits Thy Doom. Our hometown show in Vancouver sold out beyond capacity and was amazing in every way. We had very supportive crowds at the few Western Canada shows we did afterwards. Currently, we are nearing the end of the U.S. tour with In Flames, Between the Buried and Me and The Faceless and as we had hoped, it has been a great tour. We usually get along with all the bands we tour with and this is no different. The shows have been hugely attended and fans have been quite enthusiastic to say the least.
“We have a week of headlining shows on the east coast with Children and Mantic Ritual before we go to Canada and tour our way back home across our home country. Saviours will be meeting up with us in southern Ontario to do the last week of Canadian dates. After a bit of time off we embark on the BloodyDisgusting.com (our favorite website) sponsored headlining North American tour. Again, Saviours will be joining us as well as Holy Grail. It's a busy fall season for us, but we wouldn't have it any other way.”

Oakland, CA outfit SAVIOURS has inked a deal with New York City's Kemado Records. The self-described "piss-angry metal band," known for its ferocious live performances and original stamp on the classic power and thrash metal of decades past, will enter Los Angeles' A&M/Henson Studios in late August with producer Joe Barresi (MELVINS, KYUSS, TOOL) to record its sophomore album.

Fresh off a red-hot tour of the United Kingdom as hand-picked direct support to progressive metal giants MASTODON, SAVIOURS have launched a fourteen city road jaunt that will see the band's "not-to-be-missed" live sets including many of the new songs that will comprise the new full-length. The as-yet-untitled album is expected to see an early 2008 release. More...
