"Unfortunately we have to drop off our tour with Cyclamen and Sworn Amongst.
"Last night on our way to Glasgow, our drummer fucked up his wrist and this morning his wrist was hurting a lot more, enough to stop him playing for a good few weeks so we had to make the difficult decision to go back to France.
"We're sure you understand our decision, we want to deliver you the best show as we can and without a drummer at such short notice this is impossible. More...

For the past few weeks, Irish thrashers Gama Bomb have been making their way across Europe on the Thrashing Like A Maniac tour with LA shredders Bonded By Blood and UK support act Sworn Amongst, spreading the good word of thrash wherever they go.
The band comments on the tour so far: "So here we are, two weeks into our five-week European tour. We've already come so far and done so much we can't do it justice in a simple, mortal blog, but here goes: we started in Berlin, where we accidentally played to a neo-Nazi biker gang, then we wound through Europe, finding ourselves in the Italian wilderness, high in the Alps and sweltering at the far end of Portugal along the way. It's been very, very hot so far, but we're now encountering a cooler, Northern European leg of the tour."
Along with a night of thrash metal music, Gama Bomb is offering something else to the fans who attend the shows: redemption. Gama Bomb recently announced their Stamp Out Inferior Metal campaign. At each show of the 10,000-mile, eleven-country Thrashing Like A Maniac European tour, Gama Bomb invites and encourages you to bring along the worst of your music collections - the embarrassing, the awkward and the downright rubbish CDs, records and merchandise hidden amongst your better purchases - and to collect them together so both you and Gama Bomb can do what should have been done long ago - ritually shred, stamp and smash the living hell out of them! Bring them to a show, whereupon they will be ceremoniously smashed, stamped on, frisbee'd and generally destroyed as part of the set, live onstage. More...
Irish thrashers Gama Bomb has come up with a unique idea for their upcoming "Thrashing Like A Maniac" tour with Bonded By Blood and Sworn Amongst.
Singer Philly Byrne explains: "The right to listen to neck-snapping turbo-charged metal is under threat. Gloomy, posey, idiotic metal stands between us and true enjoyment of thrash. We're all guilty of having bought some rubbish, not-quite-up-to-the-mark "metal" records at some point in our lives, but it’s time to root out those embarrassing t-shirts and albums and posters – because GAMA BOMB are offering YOU a chance to wipe the slate clean."
Starting at their first show on September 12th in Germany and running through each and every stop of the 10,000-mile, eleven-country tour, GAMA BOMB invite and encourage you to bring along the worst of your music collection – the embarrassing, the awkward and the downright rubbish CDs, records and merchandise hidden amongst your better purchases – and to collect them together so both you and GAMA BOMB can do what should have been done long ago – ritually shred, stamp and smash the living hell out of them!
