DISMEMBER: We Are Not Cancelling Israeli Concert

Long-running Swedish death metallers DISMEMBER have issued a statement dismissing reports that they are cancelling their previously announced August 29 appearance at Barby Club in Tel Aviv, Israel due to the curent unrest in the Middle East. The statement reads as follows:

"Hereby DISMEMBER states that we are not cancelling the show at the Barbie club in Israel on the 29th of August!!! We have no idea who wants to destroy for us by posting untrue statements on behalf of the band. We are doing the show as planned to promote the band in a territory we have waited so long to play shows in. Be sure that we will not let the Israeli die-hard metal fans down!!!"

DISMEMBER's latest album, "The God That Never Was", was released in February via Regain Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Where Ironcrosses Grow" was once again produced by drummer Fred Estby at Sami Studio in Stockholm. The group's current lineup is completed by Matti Kärki (vocals), David Blomqvist (guitar), Martin Persson (guitar) and newcomer Tobias Christiansson on bass.
