UNEARTH Guitarist Forced To Sit Out Tour

Guitarist Buz McGrath of Massachusetts metallers UNEARTH has been forced to sit out the band's upcoming tour with EMMURE, IMPENDING DOOM and BORN OF OSIRIS. He explains in a statement, "My wife and I are in the process of adopting a baby, and currently we are overseas taking the final steps to begin our new roles as parents. Not to worry, though, as filling in for me will be the extremely capable hands of Emil Werstler of DAATH fame. He is also known in some circles as Shreddy Krueger, so be sure to peep his skills."

He continues, "This lineup of bands is beyond sick, so do what you gotta do to get to the show!! I will be back soon to resume my duties in UNEARTH, shredding like a chimpanzee on angel dust."

UNEARTH frontman Trevor Phipps adds: "Everyone can rest assured that we will be playing a full set throughout the 'Fuck School, Fuck Work, Let's Rage! Tour'. We are lucky enough to have the services of Emil Werstler, so we won't miss a beat. All of us in UNEARTH want to congratulate Buz and Dawn on their family addition."

Buz McGrath and Ken Susi of UNEARTH were the featured guest on the October 19, 2008 edition of Indie 103.1 FM's specialty metal program "Chaos with Full Metal Jackie". The interview is now available for streaming at this location.

UNEARTH sold around 11,000 copies of its new album, "The March", in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 45 on The Billboard 200 chart. The limited European-exclusive edition of "The March" includes a bonus track called "Our Callous Skin" and an exclusive bonus DVD featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the record, directed by Denise Korycki. This limited edition comes in a high-class digibook with special format. The limited LP was released on colored and 180g heavy vinyl in a gatefold sleeve and printed innerbag. It includes a unique download card to login on a dedicated page where fans can download the full album for free.
