The quartet will first embark on a month-long European tour with label-mates DYING FETUS along with CATTLE DECAPITATION starting this Friday, May 4. Also joining these bands on various dates of the tour are NAPALM DEATH, RED CHORD, DEAD TO FALL, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD, ION DISSONANCE, and WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH. This will be Skinless’ first return to Europe since their successful headlining tour there last summer. Skinless has also announced a North American tour alongside SUFFOCATION and IMMOLATION for the fall. This tour will kick off on October 25 in Quebec, QC, hitting major cities throughout its four-week span. More...
Montreal-based quintet ION DISSONANCE are getting ready to record their 3rd album and follow-up to the ABACUS Release "Solace" that left reviewers raving in 2005. ION DISSONANCE's new album is going to be entitled "Minus The Herd" and will be recorded with Zeuss. Singer Kevin McCaughey says of the album: "This is by far some of the best stuff we have ever written. There are some changes in direction with this new release, but I definitely think the die hard Ion followers will still be into the new stuff. I guess the only word to describe this new album would have to be brutal. Just straight and plain heaviness."
ION DISSONANCE will be hitting the road in the United States with Arsis and Beneath The Massacre with a stop at the California Metal Fest. They will also be touring Europe with Dead To Fall and Through The Eyes Of The Dead in May. "As for the upcoming tour dates I have to say that I, myself and the rest of the band are really looking forward to heading out with our good friends in Beneath the Massacre for their first strand of US shows. I have never been out to the west coast and I am really excited about it. We have also just confirmed our first ever European tour with our good friends in Dead to Fall and Through The Eyes Of The Dead. We are all really excited about this, and I can't wait to hit the road with these new songs once the recording process is finished."
Here are the currently confirmed Ion Dissonance tour dates: More...
South Carolina's THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD have been confirmed for a European tour alongside Dead To Fall and Ion Dissonance throughout May later this year. Currently demoing material and rehearsing to enter the studio to record the band's new album, 'Malice,' the tour marks THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD's first time touring Europe since forming in 2003.
Having already supported the band's 2005 Prosthetic Records debut, 'Bloodlust,' most recently with appearances at Sounds of the Underground and on a fall headlining tour in 2006, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD will enter Mana Studios with producer Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, ex-Morbid Angel) February 16 to lay down tracks for 'Malice,' currently slated for a tentative summer 2007 release. Alan Douches (Unearth, Shadows Fall) will handle mastering and Paul Romano (Mastodon, The Red Chord) will return for artwork duties.
"The new material is coming along nicely," guitarist Justin Longshore said previously. "The songs are a lot more mature and the music is much faster, aggressive, and way more pissed off. I think fans are going to really love it. We are really pumped to work with Erik Rutan on 'Malice.' We've never worked with a producer and I don't think we could have chosen anyone better; we really admire the work he's done in Morbid Angel and Hate Eternal and also the engineering efforts he's produced for Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal, and Premonitions of War, among others. After we hit the studio, we plan to dominate the world once again and tour throughout the year. We will be playing a lot of new places including Europe. 2007 is going to be an exciting year for TTEOTD."

QUEENSRŸCHE's "Operation: Mindcrime II" has sold 44,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at No. 14 on next week's The Billboard 200 chart. This is more than half of the total sales tally registered by the band's last studio album, 2003's "Tribe", which sold 20,000 copies in the first week and has shifted less than 75,000 units so far, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Meanwhile, the band's 1999 effort, "Q2K", opened with sales of 28,000 and has sold 150,000 copies to date.
QUEENSRŸCHE's top-selling album by far is 1990's "Empire", which was certified triple-platinum in October 1994 for sales in excess of three million copies in the United States. The original "Operation: Mindcrime" release (1988) attained platinum status in August 1991, while 1994's "Promised Land" reached the same plateau in December 1994.
In other chart news, LACUNA COIL's "Karmacode" shifted just under 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at No. 28 on next week's The Billboard 200 chart. The band's 2002 album "Comalies" has sold more than 230,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. A representative for the group's record label, Century Media, recently told Billboard magazine that the album has sold 500,000 units worldwide.
LACUNA COIL will be on the cover of at least a half-dozen metal magazines this spring. In addition, an April appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and a segment of "The Mix" on ABC News are slated, according to Billboard.
Another notable debut on this week's chart is POISON's 18-track collection, "The Best of Poison: 20 Years of Rock", which commemorates POISON's 20th anniversary and the band's career tally of more than 25 million albums and DVDs sold around the world. The album, which packs the group's biggest hits and fan favorites, opens with nearly 40,000 copies to debut at No. 17 on next week's chart.
POISON's "Greatest Hits 1986-1996" collection, which was originally released in November 1996, was officially certified double-platinum in November 2005 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for shipments in excess of two million copies in the United States.
The following are notable heavy metal/hard rock U.S. sales debuts for the week ending April 9, 2006, as reported by Nielsen SoundScan (all figures are rounded to the nearest thousand, except numbers under 2,000, which are rounded to the nearest hundred; The Billboard 200 chart position included, where applicable):
