NAPALM DEATH's Shane Embury comments as follows:
"It goes without saying that we are really looking forward to the upcoming "Deathcrusher Tour". The Musical history and relevance between all 4 of the bands truly speaks for itself I think - It's heartwarming to be a part of it.
All of the bands involved in this tour have been great friends for what I guess is a lifetime now - we have played together on many separate occasions before BUT this tour! This tour is something very special, I mean come on...VOIVOD, NAPALM DEATH, OBITUARY & CARCASS are you kidding? All on the same bill night after night?? This is the A to Z of heavy, grinding, progressive, crushing riffs in one insane package!
I expect to see nothing less than savage mosh pit mayhem every evening....this is one tour nobody should miss..."
On other news, NAPALM DEATH have just made an unreleased track from the sessions of their latest album "Apex Predator - Easy Meat" available as charity download for Nepal. Look for the track "Earthwire" and further information here: http://napalmdeath.org/scum/store-download-page
