Dismember To Play BW&BK Six-Pack Weekend

In cooperation with organizers for the 2nd Annual BW&BK Six-Pack Weekend, Candlelight Records confirms Dismember as one of this year's performers. The festival, set to be held June 4-5 at the Odeon in Cleveland, Ohio, will mark the first US performance for the Swedish band since 2000.

Drummer Fred Estby says of the confirmation, "getting back on the American crimescene after 4 years is gonna be awesome. We just can't wait to get on stage in front of the American metalheads once more." Mark Gromen, talent booker for the festival, adds "BW&BK is exited to be able to re-introduce North America to the crushing sound that is Dismember."

Formed in 1988, Dismember's roots are firmly planted in the original death metal archives. The band are revered worldwide for their no-holds-barred, pure Scandinavian death march - a sound that has long become the staple of quality for the genre. The band's collective worldwide sales surpass 500,000 units and their touring endeavors have placed them in front of audiences around the globe. They have to date shared the stage with Napalm Death, Obituary, Meshuggah, Hypocrisy, Amorphis, Morbid Angel, Death, Cannibal Corpse, as well as placing high at numerous festivals for over ten years. Their last trip to the US, headlining in support of their 2000 release, was a huge success and helped overall US sales for their last and final album for Nuclear Blast, Hate Campaign .

Dismember's performance at BW&BK Six-Pack Weekend will be in support of their new album, Where Ironcrosses Grow. Set for release April 20, the album was r ecorded at Sami Studios in Stockholm and was produced by Estby (whom has additional producing/engineering credits for Konkhra, early At the Gates, Grand Magnus, Gehennah, Katatonia, Entombed).
