Tasmanian band PSYCROPTIC has been forced to drop off the European tour as the support act for DEICIDE four days before the trek's completion after guitarist Joe Haley was hospitalized due to illness following the show in Essen, Germany Friday night (January 26). "The band regrets that they have to miss the last couple of shows and they will be back in Europe to make up for this as soon as possible," the group writes in a statement. "Big 'thank you' to all in DEICIDE, VISCERAL BLEEDING and the whole Massive Music crew for a tour that has been completley amazing, but in the end a little sad due to the ending circumstances; totally unforgetable nonetheless."

PSYCROPTIC's third full-length album, "Symbols of Failure", was released in February 2006 via Neurotic Records. The follow-up of 2003's "The Scepter of the Ancients" marks the recording debut of the band's new vocalist Jason Peppiatt.

PSYCROPTIC's video for the song "Epoch of the Gods", which was filmed by Lowlife Media at the Paris show of the "No Mercy" tour (where PSYCROPTIC supported CANNIBAL CORPSE, KATAKLYSM, LEGION OF THE DAMNED and GRIMFIST), can be viewed at this location.
