Reunited Arizona thrashers SACRED REICH have cancelled their appearance at the 11th annual D-Low Memorial concert, set to take place August 31 at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, Arizona. "Wiley [Arnett, guitar] wrecked his dirt bike while out riding and broke a few ribs," explained bassist/vocalist Phil Rind. "He's doing well but is unable to perform this weekend.

"We apologize to anyone looking forward to seeing us play, and we are disappointed that we will not be part of the show. We were happy to have the opportunity to pay our musical respects to Dana. Hopefully we can be part of next year's bill and play a full set for Dana."

The D-Low show is held every year in memory of SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera's stepson Dana "D-Low" Wells who was killed in a 1996 car wreck. It is SOULFLY's biggest show of the year and draws fans from all over the United States. In 2004, SOULFLY filmed portions of its "The Song Remains Insane" DVD at the event.

Metal Blade Records released a three-disc deluxe reissue of SACRED REICH's "Ignorance" and "Surf Nicaragua" on June 15 (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) and June 18 (rest of Europe). Two CDs are included in the package (both remastered!) as well as a bonus DVD. The package includes liner notes by Rind and Malcom Dome (Classic Rock, Metal Hammer, Total Rock Radio) and an extensive booklet with loads of previously unpublished photos.
