Last weekend Maroon finished their successful three-week European tour with Switzerland’s Cataract. Even though the bags are not completely unpacked and the laundry is not done yet new duties are already awaiting the likeable five-piece from Nordhausen.

First of all a few words from Maroon on the tour:

Back home!!!! The “Triumph Of Hate”-tour is finished and it has been just awesome and a huge success. Above all, we’d like to extend thanks to the guys in Cataract - it was really fantastic to be on tour with them, for us it was definitely the best tour we have played so far... Thanks to MAD Tourbooking, Century Media as well as Alveran Records and all promoters. Special thanks go out to all the fans in England, Poland and Germany. England was really mind-blowing and unexpected for us. In Poland our shows had always been an event, but this time it is hard to find the right words for the crowd and the action. Definitely THE show of the whole our! Thanks and HAIL to Poland! Special thanks to our road crew Pappe, Hendrik, Matze and Martin for the good work and lots of fun.

Although the tour is over now we will not sit back and do nothing, but will continue playing shows in December and January, amongst others with our brothers from Heaven Shall Burn again. Caliban, Hatesphere and Cataract will be in on it, too.

Everyone who hasn’t had enough of the Maroon live-machine can see us on stage in February on a six-week tour all across Europe with the Crossover forefathers Downset. We are really looking forward to this tour and hope that we can reach some new people besides our fans. Thanks for the support!!!

On January 22, 2005 you can see Maroon together with Heaven Shall Burn as special guests on the exclusive pre-listening-show of Napalm Death for their forthcoming album, "The Code Is Red... Long Live The Code“. Additionally, Belgium’s Do Or Die and Germany’s End Of Days will be playing. Tickets are available for not more than 12 Euros at http://www.matrix-bochum.de.

PLEASE NOTE: Just in time for the Downset tour Maroon's debut album “Antagonist” will be re-released through Alveran Records (Street date: February 21st, 2005).
