Alarum Plans More Australian Shows, New Album

Spending the better part of two years away from the scene they helped grow in the late 1990s and early 2000s, fusion metal band Alarum has announced that they have an album on the way and will once again return to the stage in their home state of Victoria.

After a one-off jaunt to Europe for ProgPower 2008 (playing alongside Cynic and Zero Hour among many others) and supporting Death Angel and Armored Saint in Melbourne earlier this year, Alarum will hit the stage with Ne Obliviscaris for two shows in Melbourne and Geelong in May.

Joining them in Geelong on Friday, May 22nd will be A Fallen Theory and symphonic black metallers Veil Of Anguish at the Barwon Club.

In Melbourne, Canberra's Aeon of Horus, local post-metal wizards Mushroom Giant and House of Thumbs get involved at the Esplanade Hotel's Gershwin Room on Saturday, May 23rd.

Following that, in September Alarum will travel to Adelaide for the fifth instalment of the Against The Grain festival with Alchemist, Mournful Congregation, LORD, 'neath and many more at Fowlers Live.

Their upcoming third album, "Natural Causes," is currently in the pre-production stage and will be recorded for a hopeful 2009 release.

Anyone who is not excited by this is clearly unable to be excited.

I bought Eventuality when it came out, had some amazing tracks on it ("Woven Imbalance" etc.) and then some so-so ones. Looking forward to hearing some new stuff anyway. Mournful Congregation rule.
