ABORTED Checks In From 'Machines Of Grind' Tour

Death metal psychopaths ABORTED have issued the following update:

"Just a small update regarding the 'Machines Of Grind' tour we just started with our friends from ROTTEN SOUND.

"As we all know, the package should have been completed by THE RED CHORD and THOSE WHO LIE BENEATH. Unfortunately, it seems the Lord is not on our side and this whole volcano mess in Iceland, and the flight ban that followed, made it impossible for our American partners in crime to join the package. This left us struggling with what to do for several days — cancel the whole tour because we were facing increasing financial losses daily, or just grind on and say fuck it, no goddamn volcano is going to stop ROTTEN SOUND or ABORTED and Avocado [Booking].

"Since we are all proud warriors and there is nothing we hate doing more than disappointing our fans, cancelling was not an option and we decided to move forward with the tour, being just ABORTED and ROTTEN SOUND in a co-headlining run with each day having the best local bands the promoters can offer.

"This has been a very harsh start of the tour and we hope that we can count on all of you fans to make this DIY Fuck The Volcano tour a blast, so show up as many and support the bands who are putting their asses on the line to show up every day.

"We, unfortunately, had to cancel the last two dates of the U.K. leg of the tour since the conditions were simply not viable anymore, and apologize to the fans and promise to return later this year to make up for this loss, which honestly, nobody can be blamed for.

"Let's put all this debacle behind us and move on with 666% of grindcore death metal debauchery!"

ABORTED's "Machines Of Grind/Terrorizer Tourture" is the first tour featuring the band's new lineup, which recently released a new EP entitled "Coronary Reconstruction". The EP got released on a limited-edition digipack sold through the band and Indiemerch containing four new tracks and a cover of ENTOMBED's "Left Hand Path".

ABORTED new lineup features Sven De Caluwé (also of SYSTEM DIVIDE) on vocals, Dirk Verbeuren (SOILWORK) on drums, Eran Segal (ex-THEY SWARM/WHORECORE) and Ken Sorceron (ABIGAIL WILLIAMS) on guitar and Cole Martinez (SYSTEM DIVIDE) on bass.

The artwork for "Coronary Reconstruction" was created by Justin Osbourn from Slasher design and comprises the most gruesome and disgusting art the band ever had.
