Long-running, female-fronted German thrashers HOLY MOSES have issued the following update:"The year 2010 is not ended now, but we like to take the chance to give you a short overview. "After the real successful shows in Finland, at Kaltenbach Open Air in Austria, and the really great shows with DORO at Landau Germany and at very great Bloodstock Open Air in U.K., the band is taking a live playing stop right now. But we are not sleeping. We are working on new songs, and we started up to arrange old-school classics of HOLY MOSES in a new structure. "We will be back in the studio for an new HOLY MOSES album in spring 2010 at Absurd Studio Hamburg. "From December 2011 until December 2012 we will have our 30-year anniversary with HOLY MOSES, and we are preparing us right now for this great event. "Our contract with Wacken Records had ended in 2010 and we are dealing right now with different companies for the release of the new album and our first DVD in HOLY MOSES history. "The first shows for summer 2011 are already booked and we will release this dates in the upcoming weeks in December. "We will play only special shows starting up in 2011 around the whole world, to celebrate the 30th years anniversary of HOLY MOSES. "We want to thank you already for that, because without you, our fans, HOLY MOSES would not exist for 30 years. Thanks for all your support also in 2010 and with a lot of power and energy we will start into 2011."
