Sick Of It All Comments On Tour Changes

New York hardcore act Sick Of It All has issued the following announcement about changes to the band's upcoming tour dates:

"FYI, there's been some changes to the Persistence tour line-up for Europe in December. Unfortunately, Sepultura backed out of doing it, but we do have an awesome band filling in for them: D.R.I. - the original thrash band who taught everyone (including us) how it's done.

"The tour also now has Casey Jones and Cruel Hand added to the bill, who are both making waves in the hardcore scene and no doubt will set it off. It's a massive line up - just remember to save some of your strength for the headliner, OK? ;-)

"The venue for the December 11 show has been changed to RWE Halle in Mulheim ad Ruhr, Germany. Don't forget to come out for the New York United tour in October featuring Sick of it All and Madball. It's gonna steamroll Europe!"

Pit Stories: Midgets Love Slayer

We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week Sick Of It All vocalist Lou Koller shares a tale of midgets moshing in the pit:

We were on tour with Slayer, and it was Slayer, us, and Meshuggah in 1999. I believe it was in New Mexico. For some reason there was a real odd number we saw, a lot of Mexican midgets at the Slayer show. And they weren’t together. We were hanging out at the merch booth waiting to go on and we counted seven different Mexican midgets. When the show started, in the middle of the set, the Slayer fans in New Mexico were taking their shirts off, lighting them on fire, and then running around with them in the pit. That was one of the craziest things we’ve ever seen. So apparently midgets in New Mexico love Slayer.

Sick Of It All recently released their four years in the making album "Based On A True Story." You can check out an interview with Lou discussing the new album here.

Check back every Tuesday for more pit stories.

Sick Of It All Comments On Upcoming Tour

New York hardcore act Sick Of It All are set to perform a string of upcoming shows this summer with Alpha and Omega, 50 Lions, and Trash Talk in the supporting slots. Vocalist Lou states: “We are very excited to get back on the road. Especially to be getting back to the West Coast. It's been too long. We have a lot of friends and fans that have been waiting patiently for us to come back. Well that was until the new album came out. Then the e-mails and messages were more like ‘you can't make an album like this and not come out here to play them live’ and we totally agree.

"We can't wait to get out there and sweat it out with everyone. The new set we've put together has a great flow. Hits you hard and keeps going and will have you singing along from start to finish. It's a great mix of old and new songs so start brushing up on those lyrics. I don't think anyone will be disappointed. See you in the pit.” More...

Report

Sick Of It All Spreads The Hardcore Reality

New York hardcore legends Sick Of It All are about to begin a short tour of the United Kingdom supporting AFI to promote their forthcoming new studio album, "Based On A True Story." Luckily for the English folk who are not too keen on AFI, Sick Of It All announced a couple of headlining shows before the main tour kicked off and very luckily for myself, one of these shows was at The Croft in Bristol.

First things first, The Croft is an excellent venue. It appears to be brilliantly run along with having some really friendly staff and a great lounge area. Apparantly, Sick Of It All specifically requested this venue and it's not hard to see why, especially when one enters the stage area, which while not huge, packs plenty of people in and is the perfect setting for a hardcore show.

Sick Of It All Postpones South American Tour

Sick of it All has issued the following update about postponing their South American tour alongside Terror:

"Sorry to all our great South American fans, but the tour we had scheduled with Terror between late July and early August is to be rescheduled to a later date, probably in 2011. Our busy fall schedule in the US and Europe is preventing us from doing it later this year. Hopefully Terror will still be available to do it with us when we get the dates locked in, but we don't know for certain if the two band's schedules will line up exactly.

"We'd like to thank all of the promoters who took on the shows - everything was shaping up very nicely and their professionalism is obvious. We appreciate their willingness to bring us down to play South America again and we're eager to do so. It's important to make it clear that this is not a cancellation - we just have to move the tour to a different time. We'll post the new dates as they're confirmed. Please watch this space. Going to South America is always special for us and we can't wait for the next opportunity to play for all our fans there again."
