Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have just wrapped up their "Graveyard Disturbance" headlining European tour, and are now gearing up for their first ever North American tour. The band will be kicking off the massive North American trek on October 22nd and will be teaming up with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EVILE, BONDED BY BLOOD and DRI.
GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE looks ahead to their first American tour:
"Touring in America is one of those things that every band, every musician or bedroom rockstar dreams about. Even bands from America don't get to tour America. We're lucky enough to get the chance and are really excited about it. If any tour we've ever undertaken can be described as a great adventure, this is it. It's going to be hard, but we're hard men. It's going to be girthy, but so are we. We'll wear the appropriate hats and drink the right liquors. You get the picture. More...
American thrash metal outfit Bonded By Blood has announced that frontman Jose Barrales has decided to leave the band in order to pursue a new career path. A message from the group reads as follows:
"After five long years of hard work and dedication our vocalist and friend Jose Barrales has decided to part ways with the band due to personal and financial reasons. We all wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors! We have, however, moved forward and found a great replacement for the upcoming tours. He is a friend, fan and a great singer named Mauro Gonzalez from local band Mutants of War. We have been rehearsing with Mauro non-stop for the upcoming 2010 calendar and can't wait to hit the road! Refreshed and recharged Bonded By Blood is ready to crush your face in like never before! Be sure to catch us all at our upcoming tour dates with Early Man/Evile and Overkill/Forbidden/Gama Bomb!"
Barrales himself states: "Since BBB is leaving on tour today, I've decided to let you all know that I have left the band. It was one of the hardest decisions I have had to make in a very long time and it crushes me to do so, but I just couldn't continue any longer. For the past two to three years, I have been struggling with financial, personal, band and family problems that seemed to get even more chaotic as time went by. I don't really want to go into detail on my personal reason on why I left the band; what I really want to say in this announcement is thank you - thank you to all the bands, fans and friends that helped me out on the road, thank you for believing in me and BBB, thank you for all the support. As for BBB, they will continue without me. For the past couple of weeks they have been rehearsing with a good friend of ours, Mauro Gonzales, from the band Mutants Of War. I only hope you guys treat him with the same respect you treated me. As for me, I will be around. I will never leave the music world, but for now, I need to fix some problems of my own. I hope you respect my decision and hope one day I can be on stage once again. One last thank you to everyone at Earache: Dig, Dan, Ali, Talita, Al, Summer, Rich and Ant. Ruben, Jerry, Juan and Alex: you guys will never be forgotten, best five years ever. Give them hell, fuckers!"
Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB are currently touring Europe on their "Graveyard Disturbance" headlining tour, with support from Danish metal band CROCELL.
As the tour nears its end, GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE updates:
"We've seen much bigger crowds and at least four contenders for the rowdiest shows ever so far. This has been the best European tour we've ever done and it's sharpening us up nicely for our stretch in the US. We're in Spain right now and urge any fans reading this to bring us some manchego and rioja." More...
British thrashers EVILE, are currently preparing for a North American tour, which kicks off at the end of September and runs through until just before Christmas.
EVILE vocalist and guitarist MATT DRAKE comments on the tour, "For the second time this year, Evile are proud to be able to say we're coming across the pond to play some more shows throughout America and Canada. Last time we were there for two months, this time we're staying for three, playing at loads of places we never went to last time, but also revisiting many places we played at with the mighty Overkill and Kreator earlier in the year. We just can't get enough of it!"
"This time we're joining up with Overkill, Forbidden, Early Man, Gama Bomb and Bonded By Blood for many different tours, also some headline shows of our own, so if you saw us play last time, make sure you come and see us again and bring everyone you know for some metal madness!" More...

Pomona, California thrashers Bonded By Blood have finished shooting a new music video in the lead-up to the release of their new album "Exiled To Earth." The video, which was filmed with director Dave Vorhes, is for the new song "Prototype: Death Machine" and sees Bonded By Blood gearing up as a group of rebels as they fight to reclaim planet Earth from the grasp of an alien race called The Crong.
Front man Jose Barrales discusses the video shoot: "Working with Dave Vorhes was a great experience. Coming into this shoot we didn't know what to expect, but I'm glad it turned out the way it did. First day we did a performance shoot, 2pm till 9pm straight, of Prototype: Death Machine. After listening so much I'm still not tired of the song.
"Second day was the storyline shoot, this was so fun. Dressing up in costumes and shooting aliens, what's not to love? This day was a long one, 6am to 11pm, but well worth it. Can't wait to see the final product, I'm sure it will be epic."
