Due to "unforeseen personal obligations," vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway of British/American grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH will be forced to miss the band's shows in Bologna, Italy (November 17) and Pratteln, Switzerland (November 19). "Unfortunately, this is unavoidable," says the band's bassist, Shane Embury. "Rather than not play those shows in Bologna and Prateln, we asked our friend Rees from the band CORRUPT MORAL ALTAR if he would come over and fill in for Barney for the next two shows. He agreed to go for it and help us out."
Shane continued: "We have been rehearsing a set in soundcheck today for tomorrow's show and it is sounding brutal and intense and we hope you guys in will show him and us your support. Thanks in advance for understanding and see everyone tomorrow."
NAPALM DEATH is currently taking part in the "Deathcrusher 2015" European tour with CARCASS, VOIVOD and OBITUARY.
NAPALM DEATH's 15th studio album, "Apex Predator - Easy Meat", was released on January 27 (one day earlier internationally) via Century Media Records. The CD's striking artwork was created by Danish designer Frode Sylthe (Friktion.com), who has previously worked on the band's "Utilitarian" album as well as with such other acts as AT THE GATES, TOTALT JÄVLA MÖRKER, THE HAUNTED and BURST.
