AMEN's previously announced UK tour (taking place October 18 - November 22) is in danger of falling through over financial issues, according to the group's booking agent Dean. He says, "the problem we have is that to make this tour happen, each promoter on the tour has to pay 50% of the bands fee UPFRONT, something which is standard for every single touring band. Along with this damn postal strike in the UK, and some promoters leaving things to the last minute, not all of these advances have been paid. We need this money to pay the bills and get this tour on the road. As of today, AMEN are ready to come, but without these advances, it simply isn't possible to make this tour happen. So before any rumours fly around about AMEN cancelling this tour or any other, these are the facts. If the promoters do their bit, AMEN will do theirs and get on the plane to the UK. Because of previous mishaps regarding AMEN's highly anticipated return to the UK, there has been a lot of unnecessary mistrust built on both sides, but we want everyone to know we are doing everything humanly possible to bring AMEN back to the UK."
AMEN's last collection of new studio recordings, "Death Before Musick", was released in 2004 through EatUrMusic — a Columbia Records imprint owned by SYSTEM OF A DOWN guitarist Daron Malakian.
Malakian — who makes a cameo appearance in AMEN's "California's Bleeding" video — met AMEN singer Casey Chaos when both bands played at Australia's Big Day Out festival in 2002 and the guitarist made AMEN his first signing.
