Hessian To Be Known As Hessian A.D. In America

After releasing debut LP "Manégarmr" through Southern Lord worldwide in April, Belgium’s ominous metal/hardcore unit Hessian has slightly revamped the band’s moniker due to pending legalities. The band is to now be known as Hessian A.D. on American soil moving forward.

Acknowledged the band in a collective statement: "Due to legal reasons, we have been forced to change the band’s name to Hessian A.D. on American territory. This, however, only covers U.S. territory; we will still continue to play under the old Hessian flag in all other parts of the world. Sadly this change is completely beyond our control and it's not very much to our liking. But, rest assured, we will continue to give this band and this music our all. Thank you all for your support."

This inconvenience aside, Hessian A.D. will move forward with their brutal Summer tour actions in continuing support of Manégarmr, with shows booked across the continent through late September and more performances being booked and confirmed all the time.
