DISSECTION Mainman Comments On Upcoming U.S. Dates

Swedish metal pioneers DISSECTION have announced the following live dates outside their final European appearance on June 24, 2006 at Dissection Midsummer Massacre '06 in Stockholm, Sweden:

Jun. 17 - Tel-Aviv, ISR @ Comfort 13
Sep. 01 - Los Angeles, CA @ House of Blues
Sep. 06 - New York City, NY @ B.B. King Blues Club & Grill

In a statement about coming to North America for the two shows, singer/guitarist Jon Nödtveidt said, "We are very proud to finally announce our first concerts in the U.S. in more than a decade. During all that happened in the intervening years we were always determined to return."

There is an update on the European show: The special limited ticket-pack offer for the Dissection Midsummer Massacre '06 is still available with ticket for the floor. Order your ticket from Dissection.nu before May 31, 2006 and you get two posters, a DISSECTION t-shirt and a DISSECTION Reaper sticker for free!

DISSECTION released their long-awaited new album, "Reinkaos", earlier in the month on The End Records.

As previously reported, Escapi Music has set a July 28 European release date (August 1 in North America) for the new DISSECTION DVD, entitled "Rebirth of Dissection". With Jon Nödtveidt's release from an eight-year prison sentence on September 6, 2004, he recruited a completely new lineup. First to join the ranks was ex-DARK FUNERAL drummer Tomas Asklund, followed shortly by bass player Brice Leclerq (ex-NIGHTRAGE). After auditioning guitarists in the summer of 2004, ex-ABORYM member Set Teitan finally entered to complete the lineup. Embarking on a vast European march of triumph, supported by Swedish black metallers WATAIN, DISSECTION's "Rebirth of Dissection European Tour 2004" turned out to be a huge success. This DVD includes lots of extras and bonus material recorded from this tour, and shows why the band are again at the top of the black metal genre.

On June 27, 2006, DISSECTION's classic "The Somberlain" and "Storm of the Light's Bane" albums will be reissued in the U.S. by The End. The remastered CDs will come with multiple bonus tracks, previously unreleased material and new layouts. All three DISSECTION albums will also be released on gatefold vinyl this summer.
