ATHEIST drummer Steve Flynn has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"This Saturday will mark the start of another round of marathon practice sessions in preparation for the first ATHEIST show coming up in England. Of course, this means like four trips to the airport... Poor me... Maybe I should open up a limo/taxi service... I live 45 miles from the airport and 33 miles from our rehearsal studio... For four days all I'll be doing is driving and playing drums.

"We'll be practicing on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. The songs we'll be playing in order (though not our actual set-list order):

01. On They Slay
02. Unholy War
03. Piece of Time
04. Unquestionable Presence
05. Retribution
06. Mother Man
07. An Incarnation's Dream
08. And the Psychic Saw
09. I Deny
10. Mineral
11. Air
12. Fire

"Tony [Choy, bass] and I will hopefully construct a bass/drum solo type thingy as well. We'll also get together a few more times before the first show in England... We may try to do a 'secret' show here in Atlanta just as a warm-up/preparation for the Euro shows... IF time and circumstance allow that is.

"I'm sure my bandmates will be adding their thoughts here as well.... Of course, all they do is either sing or play guitar... I'm the only one doing any actual physical work!!"

ATHEIST has recently had its wildly-influential catalog (1988's "Piece of Time", 1993's "Elements", and the 1991's legendary "Unquestionable Presence") reissued internationally via Relapse Records. Additionally, "Unquestionable Presence" was recently featured in Decibel magazine as part of its ongoing Hall of Fame feature. The Hall of Fame feature highlights influential and pivotal releases in metal history, and "Unquestionable Presence" joins of ranks of previously profiled classics such as SLAYER's "Reign In Blood", SEPULTURA's "Roots", and AT THE GATES' "Slaughter of the Soul", among others.

Upcoming ATHEIST shows:

Jul. 14-15 - Bloodstock Open Air @ Catton Hall - Derbyshire, UK
