Dutch death/thrash metal act DETONATION has issued the following update:
"New songs are what we'll be focusing on the upcoming period. We have a fair amount of new material finished and will most likely hit the studios next month to record a couple of new songs. These recordings will mainly be to see how the new songs and lineup work out in the studios, but if they turn out well, we might put something on MySpace as well."
DETONATION has just completed a U.K. tour with British band BLOODSHOT DAWN. DETONATION writes, "We had a blast in the U.K. during the past week! Despite two shows being canceled we did have a couple a very nice shows and one hell of a good time. Major thanks go out to the guys from BLOODSHOT DAWN, especially to Josh, who have been so kind to accommodate us, help us book the shows and support us on every one of them! Thanks, as well, to all other bands that supported us as well as everyone that showed up on the show, we hoped you guys enjoyed the new songs!"
