NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury has posted the following message on the band's official web site:
"The European tour [with BORN FROM PAIN and MENDEED] is gaining more and more momentum as the days progress.We had a little bit of a slow start but for sure the last few shows in Germany and yesteday in Prague were great - although the Matrix show in Prague must rank as one of the hottest shows ever; it almost felt like you were buning inside! So today we are in Budapest. It's a nice sunny day and it looks like tonight's show will be a cool one also. There's been a lot of fun on the tour and all of the bands have been getting along well which is always a bonus — very relaxed and that's cool."
NAPALM DEATH recently completed an extremely successful run on the "Monsters of Mayhem" U.S. tour with HATEBREED, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, EXODUS, FIRST BLOOD and DESPISED ICON in support of "Smear Campaign", its highly acclaimed new album. The disc, produced once again with Russ Russel, is an uncompromising, ferocious assault that continues to address serious social issues that plague today's society. The group also shot a video for the track "When All Is Said and Done", with up-and-coming director Kevin Wildt ("Set Your Goals", "The Warriors"); look for it early next month.
This fall NAPALM DEATH will annihilate the masses on the "Death By Decibels" tour, their first U.S. headlining tour in more than five years. The Decibel magazine-sponsored trek kicks off on November 15 and also features A LIFE ONCE LOST, DEAD TO FALL and ANIMOSITY in the support slots with ARSIS and IMPALED joining on select dates.
