Heathen Added To Destruction Tour

German thrash metal veterans Destruction have announced that Destroyer 666 will be unable to participate in the band's scheduled tour of North America this April, because guitarist and vocalist K.K. Warslut will be undergoing surgery on a torn ACL. Replacing them on the bill will be fellow thrash legends Heathen, who released their first new album in nineteen years, "Evolution Through Chaos" last year.

Speaking on the tour's lineup, Destruction front man Schmier stated:

"Destruction wishes Keith a safe and quick recovery! In the meantime, we are really happy to announce their old friends Heathen as a replacement for Deströyer 666! These Bay Area thrashers are one of my favorite thrash bands of all time and we will be sharing the European stages with them in some weeks on the Killfest tour. It's fantastic to have an opportunity to tour with old friends on both sides of the globe! German and Bay Area thrash together on tour - how much more kick-ass can it get?! I can't wait to hit the road again now, hope to see you all out there!"

Destruction Comments On Canceled Show

Germany's Destruction has issued the following statement about canceling the band's previously scheduled tour date in Guatemala:

"Dear Metalheads! We are very sorry to announce that we have to cancel the show. We agreed on certain subjects with the promoter which has to be fulfilled concerning advance payments and flights. Many of these agreed subjects have never been fulfilled from the promoters side and until now we do not even have seen any confirmed flight tickets for the whole band, there was no flight ticket for our drummer and all payments have not been directed in time as agreed. Everything that is coming from the promoters side is not near by the truth so we see ourselves forced to publish this to let all Destruction fans know about the situation."
