MNEMIC Bassist To Miss First Three Shows Of European Tour

Bassist Simone Bertozzi of Danish modern metallers MNEMIC will miss the first three shows of the band's upcoming tour due to "some last-minute kidney issues." He says, "I'm feeling well already, but, unfortunately, I'm forced to miss the [dates] in order to take the necessary medical tests and treatment measures. No panic, though, 'cause longtime friend Bo Lund (also known as THE HAUNTED's sound engineer) will provide the proper low-end dose on the first gig in Lyngby (Denmark), and the guys will increase their headbanging for the Czech Republic gigs to fill my empty spot. I will get back on the road with my fellas starting from Sunday, May 6th in Ferrara, Italy."

MNEMIC will release its fifth album, "Mnemesis", in Europe on June 8 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded at Antfarm studios in Aabyhøj, Denmark with longtime producer Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, HIMSA, SICK OF IT ALL). The cover artwork was created by Metastazis (MORBID ANGEL, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, PARADISE LOST, ULVER) and can be seen below.

Commented guitarist Mircea Gabriel Eftemie: "The arrival of 'Mnemesis' is getting closer and closer. With this said, we are announcing the full track list of the album, and later on we will be releasing some tunes for you all to hear. In other news we are actually going on tour next month! More precisely we are taking a run out in Europe, and later this year we are hitting Australia for the very first time. We're very excited about this, and looking forward very much to be playing in this corner of the world!"

01. Transcend
