FLOTSAM AND JETSAM: European Tour Cancelled?

According to a posting on the web site of the Burgerweeshuis venue in Deventer, Holland, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM's previously announced European tour, which was scheduled to take place in November, has been cancelled. There is currently no word if the trek — which was slated to include a Nov. 3 date in Deventer, a Nov. 5 stop in Pratteln, Switzerland, and a Nov. 9 show in Ludwigsburg, Germany — will be rescheduled.

As previously reported, a classic video clip of FLOTSAM AND JETSAM performing the song "She Took an Axe" in 1985 — featuring future METALLICA bassist Jason Newsted — has been posted online at YouTube.com.

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM's classic debut, "Doomsday for the Deceiver", will be reissued as a "Special Edition" by Metal Blade Records on October 31. The original album was produced by Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel and FLOTSAM AND JETSAM and is the group's sole release to feature Newsted before he joined METALLICA as the replacement for Cliff Burton. More information is available at this location.

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM's "Live In Japan" DVD was released in February via Crash Music, Inc. The disc was filmed over three shows in Japan in January of 2004.

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM's latest album, "Dreams of Death", is available now on Crash Music, Inc. The CD was engineered by Tom Giatron and produced by FLOTSAM AND JETSAM and Tom Giatron at Genesis Studios in Phoenix. Travis Smith did the cover art.
