Arsis' Trailer Flips Over, Jeopardizes Rest Of Headlining Tour

Calling in from a frozen tundra somewhere in Iowa, ARSIS frontman/guitarist Jim Malone provides this update:

“Everyone’s fine. Hard to believe this happened during the day, but the road is solid ice. The trailer flipped, broke loose of the hitch, and is now stuck in a snow bank. Better the trailer and not us. We’re waiting to get it towed, since it’s unusable. It’s lodged in ice and we can’t get to our gear, but we’re sure it’s all smashed. We need to assess the situation and see how much of our gear still works before we can say anything about finishing out the rest of the tour. We can’t afford to buy a new trailer at this point. Again, we apologize to our fans. We’ll have an update soon.”

Adds bassist Noah Martin:

“We’re going to try to find a room up the highway in the next small town. Hopefully we won’t have to fight off inbred zombie cannibals… like we need that right now. We are all suuuper pissed that this has happened just as we were getting back on this tour. This sucks a lot of dinosaur dick – and that’s a LOT of meat!”

You can stream the title track off the new ARSIS album, "We Are The Nightmare," on the band's MySpace page.

"We Are The Nightmare" will be available in North America on April 15th, 2008.

good to hear they're all ok, seems like we've already lost a lot of musical talent in the last few months, no need to lose anymore.

The roads in Iowa are terrible. It took me an hour and a half to drive 30 miles to the High On Fire show in Iowa City. Just because the pavement is dry for 20 miles doesn't mean there isn't a patch of ice over the next hill. Take it easy.
