Long-running Canadian thrashers ANNIHILATOR have been forced to cancel their previously announced European tour, which was slated to kick off in July. In a posting on the band's official forum, mainman Jeff Waters wrote, "We were, of course, really looking forward to doing this tour but will unfortunately have to push it back to late 2006. We had planned on finishing up our new CD by tour time. However, the recording is taking longer than anticipated and some of the people involved in the recording/mixing are not avaliable after the tour. We sincerely apologize to the fans and promoters but will see you all in the fall!"ANNIHILATOR's eleventh studio album, "Schizo Deluxe", was released in North America last November via Locomotive Music. The band recently issued a retrospective double-disc DVD set, entitled "Ten Years in Hell", via SPV. The set contains seven classic, official ANNIHILATOR music videos, offstage band footage and bonus underground, fan-shot, live performances and a special interview with Waters as he recounts his memories of the band's "first ten years in Hell." Also included are special appearances by original co-lyricist John Bates, "Neverland" frontman Coburn Pharr, "Criteria" bassist Russell Bergquist, and "Set the World on Fire"'s Mike Mangini and Neil Goldberg.
