Drummer Tony Laureano (DIMMU BORGIR, NILE, ANGELCORPSE) has issued the following update:

"I am unable to take part in NACHTMYSTIUM's current tour with SKELETONWITCH due to the fact that it conflicts with the rehearsal schedule for DIMMU BORGIR's European tour which begins later in September. Apologies to those that expected me to be there. I look forward to hitting the road with NACHTMYSTIUM next year after the new album is recorded."

Tony Laureano is filling in for DIMMU BORGIR drummer Hellhammer on the band's upcoming European tour with AMON AMARTH and HATESPHERE.

Following a recently diagnosed injury, Hellhammer's x-ray confirmed a severe neck prolapse causing numbness in his right arm. He will be going into treatment soon and could quite possibly undergo corrective surgery.

Laureano previously played for DIMMU BORGIR during the band's North American stint on Ozzfest in 2004 and during festival performances throughout 2005.
