DIVINE HERESY, the Southern California-based metal group led by former FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares, has been forced to pospone the first two dates (March 31 in Tucsco, Arizona and April 1 in Tempe, Arizona) of its previously announced West Coast mini-tour. "The band are currently trying to finish up their new album and have run into some scheduling conflicts and in turn have to postpone the shows to a later date in order to finish up the album and get it out for our fans!" DIVINE HERESY says in a statement. "Thanks for understanding and we will be back to play for our Arizona fans as soon as we can reschedule."
Upcoming DIVINE HERESY shows:
Apr. 02 - Whisky A Go Go - Hollywood, California
Apr. 03 - Jumping Turtle - San Marcos, California
Apr. 04 - Cheyenne Saloon - Las Vegas, Nevada
DIVINE HERESY's much-anticipated sophomore CD will be the group's first with new vocalist Travis Neal (THE BEREAVED, PUSHED). The band is once again recording with acclaimed producing team Dirty Icon (Logan Mader and Lucas Banker), which has previously worked with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, GOJIRA, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and DEVILDRIVER. DIVINE HERESY is also co-producing the new effort.
After a year and a half of touring with the likes of ALL THAT REMAINS, STATIC-X, ARCH ENEMY, CHIMAIRA and SHADOWS FALL, DIVINE HERESY has proven that it is a stellar live act and is a force to be reckoned with.
Commented Cazares: "With Neal now having a few shows under his belt, his confidence is coming across through the new material. The songwriting process has been great and the ideas are constantly flowing. Collaborating with Tim Yeung [drums], Joe Payne [bass] and Neal, all together hashing out ideas in the practice space, has been very therapeutic and enjoyable. We all have a collective desire to take our performances to the next level with this release to undoubtedly prove that we are one of the most devastating bands in the scene today."
