BURY YOUR DEAD Guitarist 'Seriously Injured,' Vows To Continue Touring

Boston-based hardcore/metal band BURY YOUR DEAD has issued the following statement:

"On Saturday night, February 16th, BURY YOUR DEAD guitarist Eric Ellis was a victim of a random attack by six individuals following the band's set at The Rave in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Eric was held at gunpoint while the men hit him multiple times with a baseball bat and hammer. Previous reports of a robbery are false, as the Milwaukee police department has classified it as a 'gang initiation.' Despite suffering what others would consider serious injuries, Eric and the rest of BURY YOUR DEAD will move forward and continue with their tour alongside HELLYEAH and take that into their headlining run with EMMURE, THE WARRIORS, and WITH BLOOD COMES CLEANSING."

Added the band: "It will take more than this to stop BURY YOUR DEAD. We'll see you soon."

A new BURY YOUR DEAD track, entitled "Sympathy Orchestra", has been posted on the group's MySpace page. The song comes off the band's upcoming self-titled album, due on March 18 via Victory Records.

Never ones to dwell on the past, Boston natives BURY YOUR DEAD are forging ahead to the future with new vocalist Myke Terry (formerly of CASSIUS) in tow. The band recently returned to Florida's Audiohammer Studios, the exact facility where their previous release, "Beauty and the Breakdown", was recorded. BURY YOUR DEAD also brought back producer Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, GOD FORBID), continuing with the theme of tradition. BURY YOUR DEAD drummer Mark Castillo previously stated, "All I have to say is the new BURY YOUR DEAD isn't what people are going to expect. You really have to hear this."

Revolution-Music.dk recently conducted an interview with Mark Castillo. Download the 18-minute audio file at this location (16 MB).

Capital Chaos TV has posted a video clip of BURY YOUR DEAD's May 15, 2007 performance at The Underground in Roseville, California. Watch it below.
