BLOODSIMPLE Forced To Miss Sacramento FAMILY VALUES Date

New York metalcore crew BLOODSIMPLE has issued the following statement:

"Sorry to say but we will have to cancel the Family Values show in Marysville [California] on Friday. Tim [Williams, vocals] has to have an emergency tooth pulled in L.A. in about an hour. He is in bad shape. We hope to be able to play Saturday in San Francisco (Mountain View) and Sunday in Irvine. Have to wait and see how he recovers. This totally sucks for all of us and we apologize!!!"

BLOODSIMPLE is scheduled to release its sophomore album, "Red Harvest", on October 9. A single, "Out to Get You", is expected to impact radio shortly.

Rehearsal footage of BLOODSIMPLE playing the new song "Dark Helmet" from its forthcoming CD "Red Harvest" has been posted at has posted a new video interview with BLOODSIMPLE in which the band talks about a range of topics, including their roots in VISIONS OF DISORDER and SKREW, and their approach to writing their latest album, "Blood Harvest".

"This record is definitely a step up from the last one," says guitarist Nick Rowe.

"We tried to write more as a band this time," adds guitarist Mike Kennedy. "The last record was written a lot on ProTools and it was a little more structured whereas on this record we tried to open it up a little bit and make it feel like a real band wrote it. I think we definitely achieved that, for sure."

"Red Harvest" was produced by Machine (LAMB OF GOD, WHITE ZOMBIE). The LP will contain around 11 tracks, including "Dead Man Walking", the title cut and "El Myr" — the name of an Atlanta burrito bar the band loves to visit while on the road.

BLOODSIMPLE's debut CD, "A Cruel World", was released in March 2005 on MUDVAYNE singer Chad Gray's Bullygoat label imprint (via Warner Bros.).
