German thrash masters EXUMER have been confirmed to play at Monsterfest in Bogota/Colombia on January 26, 2013. EXUMER will join German thrashers SODOM and TANKARD, among others featured on the festival's line-up. This is the band's first trip to Colombia and the start of their 2013 touring schedule, which will take EXUMER through Europe in February/March and to North America in April/May.
Comments vocalist Mem V. Stein: " It's an honor for us to finally travel to Colombia and play for our fans there. We were quite sad that we were unable to visit Colombia during our SOUTH AMERICAN DAMNATION TOUR, earlier in May/June this year. Hence, we were very excited when we were asked to join forces with our friends from SODOM and TANKARD and to play at Monsterfest. This will be no doubt an epic event and something to remember for a long time to come."
EXUMER released their latest album, Fire & Damnation, in April of this year. The album, described by Bloody Disgusting as a "blistering, arcing, glorious moshfest", is the band's third full length release and first since 1987's Rising from the Sea. EXUMER's debut album, Possessed by Fire, holds exalted status in the thrash underground as being one of the best releases of its era. And now, in 2012, EXUMER has returned to the stage, many years wiser, and as electrifying as ever. Fans can watch the video for the title track Fire & Damnation at metalblade.com/exumer.
