Absu Discusses The North American "CIII" Tour

Candlelight Records has just completed its third label packaged tour for North America, which featured Philadelphia thrashers RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER and support from Los Angeles-based SOTHIS. The tour visited 21 cities throughout the US and Canada, which began in San Marcos, California and unexpectedly ended in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on June 27. ABSU's scheduled Ft. Worth, TX performance on Monday, June 29 was canceled due to the band's tour bus breaking down outside of Baton Rouge, LA. The concert will be rescheduled for later this summer and all tickets for the canceled show will be honored for the new date or refunded at the point of purchase.

Proscriptor comments on the tour, "For not touring in 12 years, I must admit I was extremely pleased with not only the tour, but overall turnout for all the performances. However, I am still a bit disappointed the original bands that were initially included on the tour (DESTROYER 666, AVERSE SEFIRA and GLORIOR BELLI) dropped off, which would have made the tour stronger, but still pleased. At least we successfully conveyed our message of mythological occult metal across the North American terrain – mission accomplished."

ABSU will perform at the following festivals this summer:

7/17/2009 Hell’s Pleasure Metal Festival - Pößneck, Germany
7/18/2009 Kaltenbach Open Air - Spital am Semmering, Austria
7/25/2009 Stonehenge Festival - Steenwijk, Netherlands
8/28/2009 Hole In The Sky - Bergen Metal Fest X - Bergen, Norway
