MALEVOLENT CREATION: Vocalist BRETT HOFFMAN To Rejoin Band For European Tour

MALEVOLENT CREATION mainman Phil Fasciana has issued the following update:

"I wanted to tell you that Kyle [Symons, vocals] has just announced that he can't do the tour in Europe with us due to personal reasons and instead of canceling another tour because of Kyle and his personal problems, we have contacted original vocalist Brett Hoffman to do the tour and he accepted our offer and is flying down to Florida next week to rehearse with the band until we leave on January 3rd. We simply cannot keep canceling tours because of Kyle and let down our fans and the promoters and booking agents who spend a lot of time and money on these tours. We cannot afford to lose our credibility as a touring band so this is how it has to be if we wish to continue!!!!

"This is really great news for a lot of fans and also marks the return of the original 4 band members (me, Jon Rubin, Jason Blachowicz and Brett Hoffman), together for the first time since our first European tours in 1991 and 1994 with this lineup. If all goes well on this tour we may replace Kyle with Brett and finish writing and recording our 10th album and then do a massive world tour for the next two years!!!!

"No one can destroy this MALEVOLENT CREATION!!!!!!"

MALEVOLENT CREATION's current touring lineup:

Brett Hoffman – vocals
Dave Kinkade – drums
Jon Rubin – guitars
Marco Martell – bass
Phil Fasciana – guitars

MALEVOLENT CREATION are currently writing the material for their tenth studio CD, entitled "Doomsday X", which will be released spring-summer 2006. Several European festival appearances will follow next summer.
