West Coast death gore hooligans EXHUMED have released the following statement:
"We are super-bummed that the Canadian border patrol has denied us entry to their otherwise fine country today and forced us to cancel our Halloween show in Montreal. We even had ridiculous costumes prepared!
"We are doing everything in our power to sort out the paperwork to make the Toronto show tomorrow, but it doesn't look too likely.
"In case we are forced to cancel Toronto as well, we would be stoked to jump on a metal/punk show in the Buffalo/Cleveland area tomorrow. Please contact our agent, Dan Rozenblum at [email protected]agency.com.
"We will do our best keep everybody up on the situation. In the meantime, cheers to our friends in [MUNICIPAL] WASTE, NAPALM DEATH and VEKTOR who will tear Montreal several new orifices tonight!"
EXHUMED recently completed recording the follow-up to 2011's "All Guts, No Glory" full-length. The as-yet-untitled longplayer was tracked at Arcane Digital Recording in Chandler, Arizona with Ryan Butler (MISERY INDEX, LANDMINE MARATHON, PHOBIA). All drums were laid down at Trench Studios in Corona, California with John Haddad (HIRAX, ABYSMAL DAWN, INTRONAUT). The unholy offering will be unleashed by Relapse Records sometime next year.
EXHUMED 2012 features the smoldering lineup of vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey alongside bassist Rob "Body Bag" Babcock, drummer Mike Hamilton and guitarist/vocalist Bud Burke, who played bass with the band from 1999 to 2004 and recently rejoined the legion for their live rituals on this year's Summer Slaughter Tour.
