Ill Nino Album Pushed Back

ILL NINO's new album, "Enigma" (Cement Shoes Records), has reportedly had its release date pushed back to October 9. A track from the CD, entitled "Alibi of Tyrants", is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.

ILL NINO's last release was the "The Undercover Sessions" EP, which came out in November through Cement Shoes. The CD was comprised of three of ILL NINO's favorite cover songs from bands they loved growing up as fans, and two brand new songs — all overseen by legendary producer Andy Johns (LED ZEPPELIN, VAN HALEN, OZZY OSBOURNE), Dave Chavarri and Eddie Wohl (ANTHRAX, 36 CRAZYFISTS, MACHINE HEAD). The EP was the band's first release through Cement Shoes following their split with the Roadrunner label.

Ill Nino Complete New Album

ILL NINO has issued the following update:

"Just wanted to let everyone know what's going with our new album 'Enigma'. The record is finally done and we couldn't be happier. All of us feel that 'Enigma' is by far our best effort to date; it fuckin' rules.

"After five months of working on 'Enigma', three weeks in the U.K. co-headline tour with DROWNING POOL, and a six-week, 14-country, European festival tour, covering Download, Lorca Rock, Fields of Rock, Nova Rock, Greenfield, Metaltown, With Full Force, Vina Rock, and the Coca Cola Festival, we've decided to take eight weeks off to be with family, and friends. But don't worry — ILL NINO will be back on the road early September in full support of 'Enigma'. We cannot wait to play these songs for everyone live!! Also the first video for 'The Alibi of Tyrants' will be around mid-August."

"Enigma" (Cement Shoes Records) has reportedly had its release date pushed back to September 25 from the previously announced July 17. A track from the CD, entitled "Alibi of Tyrants", is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.

Gorefest Replaces Ill Nino At Festival

Reunited Dutch metallers GOREFEST have replaced ILL NINO on the billing of this year's Lowlands festival, set to take place August 18-20 in Biddinghuizen, The Netherlands.

"So... what one thinks would be within reach and with some effort possible won't happen and what one didn't expect to happen in a million years falls more or less in one's lap!" reads a posting on GOREFEST's web site.

"Lowlands 2006 asked us to fill in for ILL NINO who cannot appear due to a skateboard accident. So hereby we proudly announce that on Friday the 18th of August, between 20:00 and 21:00, a silent dream comes true for us on India stage. We are honoured and hope to see a lot of you there.

"This brings back some sweet memories..."

GOREFEST's latest album, "La Muerte", was released last October via Nuclear Blast Records.

Ill Nino Cancel European Tour

ILL NIÑO have posted the following update at their official website:

"It is with sincere regret that we must announce that Ill Niño will not be able to perform its upcoming European tour. Danny Couto, Ill Niño's percussionist, and also semi-pro skateboarder, was in a skateboarding accident late Wednesday (August 2nd) night. Danny landed on his wrist and tore a ligament and is unable to use his right wrist and arm. This accident makes it impossible for Danny to perform in the upcoming European tour. Ill Niño works and lives like a family and each member is integral to every show. Ill Niño feel that performing without Danny not only takes away from the live show, but is unfair to the fans who expect nothing less than an amazing show. We promise to make up the shows as soon as possible. Thanks for supporting Ill Niño!"
