Fan-filmed video footage of NEVERMORE's performance at this year's installment of the Elsrock Festival, which was held August 25 in Rijssen, The Netherlands, can be viewed below.
NEVERMORE members Warrel Dane (vocals) and Jeff Loomis (guitar) were the featured guests on "Metal Shop" on Seattle's KISW 99.9 FM on July 28, 2007. The program is available for streaming: Hour 1, Hour 2, Hour 3. (Note: Warrel and Jeff appear during the last two hours.)
As previously reported, NEVERMORE has parted ways with guitarist Steve Smyth due to "personal and business differences."
During Smyth's time away from the touring circuit (Smyth was diagnosed with end-stage kidney failure last fall and hadn't toured with the band in over a year), NEVERMORE has been utilizing the services of longtime session guitarist Chris Broderick (JAG PANZER).
NEVERMORE bassist Jim Sheppard was forced to miss the band's July 7 appearance at the Evolution Festival in Firenze, Italy due to scheduling conflicts. Standing in for him at the gig was ARMORED SAINT/FATES WARNING bassist Joey Vera.
Sheppard last year missed a number of NEVERMORE shows after undergoing a minor procedure for Crohn's Disease, a condition he's managed for over 15 years. Filling in for Sheppard was longtime friend James MacDonough (ex-MEGADETH, ICED EARTH).
NEVERMORE has begun the songwriting process for the follow-up to 2005's "This Godless Endeavor", tentatively due next year via Century Media Records. "Jeff [Loomis, NEVERMORE guitarist] just gave me a new song to work on and it fucking crushes!" Dane said in late June. "Since all [the songs for my upcoming solo album] have been pretty much finished for some time, I'm working hard on the new NEVERMORE stuff, and man, Jeff is kicking some major ass!"
