Virginia-based old-school thrash metallers DECEASED have posted the following message on their official web site:
"Our new album 'Surreal Overdose' has been pushed back until the end of the year. We won't get in to start recording it until fall of 2007 at the earliest. We are taking our time with writing the songs which are coming along nicely. No word yet on when this new CD will be released.
"We will be re-releasing 'Fearless Undead Machines' as a two-CD [set] in the near future. The album has been out of print for a while and we want to do something extra with this re-release. The first CD will have a re-mastered version of the album. The second CD will contain demo versions of songs, studio outtakes, and live versions of the songs. The accompanying booklet will tell the story of the making of the album, from rejected artwork to funny stories that happened while in the studio. The first 100 copies will include a zombie/DECEASED logo metal pin and a patch to coincide with the 10-year anniversary of this album. More related merchandise will be available soon. Look for an announcement here when it does happen!
"We will start playing shows again next spring. We are currently working in our new live guitarist Shane Fuegel, who is coming along great. Once we are ready with him, we will be playing a lot of shows. Chicago, California, Florida, New York, and a whole lot of other places that haven't been confirmed yet."
