Scar Symmetry Wishes You A Fantastic 2009

Scar Symmetry has issued the following 2009 update:

So, another year has come to an end. Our 5th as a band! A lot of cool things happened in 2008. And one very uncool thing. But everything turned out great, luckily.

The year of 2008 started while we were halfway through recording Holographic Universe. Our quickest recording session to date (merely two months!). Some months later the album was released, and we debuted on the Billboard 200 chart! Very cool indeed. Out of all the reviews we've read, it seems most people found themselves somewhere between enthusiastic and ecstatic about the album. A few reviewers didn't understand it, and we feel sorry for them... Haha!

Fast forward another few months and we found ourselves having announced to the world that we had parted ways with our lead vocalist. Crazy move, some people thought. Well needless to say, it wouldn't have happened unless we had some pretty good reasons. Shortly thereafter, we presented the new lineup - featuring two vocalists instead of one! Most people seemed to agree that this was an exciting direction for us to take. After taking the new lineup for a test drive all over not-so-sunny Spain we felt confident that the two singers-approach was a wise decision.

2009. What are our hopes and expectations? We're hoping and expecting lots and lots of touring, shows and festivals! Also, we have a few new songs written... We're eager to record some new stuff with Rob and Lars sooner rather than later, though it's too early to tell when it will happen.

Our first confirmed show for 2009 is the CHAULNES METAL FEST. We'll be sharing the stage with the amazing TEXTURES and super-shredders ADAGIO... Awesome line-up!!! Check it out here.

To all our fans, to the people at Nuclear Blast, to Ronnie/Headlight Productions, and everyone else that shared the magic moments of 2008 with us...We wish you a fuckin' fantastic 2009!

What's Next?
