Abacus Recordings has officially ceased to exist. Portions of the one-time Century Media Records imprint will now be folded back into Century Media. Launched in 2002, the label was originally headed by Century Media co-owner Robert Kampf. Roughly two years ago Abacus and Century Media split, with Kampf choosing to relinquish his portion of ownership. Details regarding the latest arrangement between the two entities are scant, but it appears that certain Abacus bands will now be brought over to the Century Media roster. In recent years Abacus has released material by Sick Of It All, Ion Dissonance, and Sworn Enemy, among many others.
SICK OF IT ALL drummer Armand Majidi has released the following statement:
"Here's the unfortunate news that everybody feared: the European tour has to be cancelled. Even after canceling the U.S. tour with DROPKICK MURPHYS, we don't feel there's enough time for Lou [Koller, vocals] to make a full recovery [from a recent back injury] between now and the start of the European tour in late March. This injury was much worse and the recovery much slower than we expected. Taking this extra time for Lou's back to heal will hopefully mean that the rest of the year won't hold any more nasty surprises like this one.
"We've never had to cancel two tours in a row before, so we feel awful about disappointing our fans and friends. It's definitely a regretful situation. At least we'll be coming back to Europe during festival season in June and July, so we get to see each other again soon. Everybody has been amazingly understanding of the situation, and have sent Lou a lot of well-wishes — we really appreciate it. Thanks for your loyalty.
"Don't worry, Australia and Singapore — we're still on for May, and by that time all of us will be ready to explode onto the stage again!"
Two songs from the forthcoming SICK OF IT ALL tribute album — HATEBREED's version of "Ratpack" and BOUNCING SOULS' rendition of "Good Lookin' Out" — are available for listening on the Sick Of It All's MySpace page for the CD.
"Our Impact Will Be Felt" will hit shelves in the United States on April 24 through Abacus Recordings and features such additional heavy hitters such as SEPULTURA, RISE AGAINST, BLEEDING THROUGH, IGNITE and UNEARTH.
Each week leading up to the album's release there will be two new songs streaming for fans to listen to and get an inside preview of the album.

01. RISE AGAINST - "Built To Last"

Sick Of It All has been forced to cancel the West Coast portion of their upcoming tour with Dropkick Murphys and The Aggrolites due to an injury. The band commented:
"Our singer Lou has had very bad back problems for the last week, and yesterday he had to be taken to the hospital because he couldn't move without being in a lot of pain. He was released a few hours later, but isn't in the kind of shape that would allow him to perform on stage. We're really sorry, but we can't make the trip out to California to start the tour with Dropkick Murphys."
"Our friends in Dropkick have been very cool and understanding, and although we're leaving them in a bind without the main support act they planned the tour with, they aren't canceling our spot just yet. We're going to take this day by day and see if we'll be able to meet up with the tour at some point, but it looks like we'll definitely miss the Western part of the Dropkick tour. If we can join the tour, the place and date will both depend on Lou's recovery time."
Sick of It All has been touring non-stop since the release of Death to Tyrants in 2006.
