BENEDICTION To Embark On 'No Reunion Needed' Tour

Long-running UK extreme metallers BENEDICTION have issued the following update:

"Just to let you know that we will be embarking on a full headlining European tour starting on September 25th until October 25th, 2008. Dates will be added on our show page as they are confirmed. Our guests on the No Reunion Needed tour will be HOLY MOSES and NOMINON, along with a local opening band at every venue. Following this and after the Christmas break we will sort out the rest of the world! Plans are being made now for an American tour for spring/summer 2009 giving all the paperwork dealers time to sort out visas and work permits this time!"

BENEDICTION's new album, "Killing Music", is scheduled for release on August 22 via Nuclear Blast Records.
