FUELED BY FIRE
Commented EXUMER frontman Mem V. Stein: "We are extremely excited to come and finally play in North America. The last time the band played outside of Europe was in 1988, in Brazil. It will also be amazing to play alongside of some very talented young thrash metal bands who have quoted us as one of their musical influences. It feels very similar to when we played in Brazil where SEPULTURA was on the bill and that turned out to be one our most memorable shows." EXUMER is currently working on material for its third full-length album for a tentative late 2009 release. The band is also negotiating with labels for what will be EXUMER's first release in over 22 years. For more information, visit www.myspace.com/exumerwakingthefire.
