Vocalist John Tardy of the Floridian death metal legends OBITUARY has posted the following message on the band's official web site:"As you may or may not know, we are no longer with our old record company [Roadrunner Records] and we have a lot of options for what we might want to do. One thing is for sure and that is we will have a new CD out sometime this year. We have been working on some new material and when we get done with our European Tour in January we are going to work hard on getting that completed. "Everything is set for our trip to Europe and we are all ready to go. I was just checking the weather and it looks like we will be freezing our asses off but, as my dad would say, You got to do what you got to do!!!!' Record cold temperatures in some countries is not going to make things easy for us...I can't even remember the last time I put a pair of long pants on??? "Anyway, we look forward to seeing you all out at the shows and really need your support so please come out and see us!!!" OBITUARY's European tour with SAMAEL and MAROON kicks off January 6 in Weert, Holland. A complete list of currently confirmed tour dates can be found at Obituary.cc. As previously reported, OBITUARY shot a video for the track "On the Floor" at their December 9 concert at the Masquerade in Ybor City, Florida. OBITUARY's latest CD, "Frozen in Time", was released in July 2005 via Roadrunner Records. The group's first collection of new songs since 1997's "Back from the Dead" was self-produced by the band, with Mark Prator and Scott Burns engineering, and was mastered by Tom Morris at Morrisound.
