EXUMER To Tour South America With ARTILLERY

German thrashers EXUMER will join forces with Danish thrash masters ARTILLERY for a series of shows in South America in May and June. This is EXUMER's first appearance in South America in 24 years, where the band last played in Brazil in 1988.

Commented EXUMER vocalist Mem V. Stein: "We have been waiting for this moment for a long, long time! It's a huge milestone in our career to return to Brazil after 24 years, where there are numerous online communities that wholeheartedly embrace EXUMER and where our fans have been loyally following us since our first appearances in the 1980s. There could hardly be a more cult tour package, between EXUMER and ARTILLERY, to hit South America and the timing could not be better for us to return there shortly after the release of our new album."

Added ARTILLERY's Michael Stützer: "ARTILLERY are looking forward to come to South America to play for some of the most dedicated thrashers in the world. It has been one of our main goals from the start of ARTILLERY and we are so excited to play for the headbangers, who has supported us through all these years!"

The dates are as follows:

May 30 - Buenos Aires, Argentina @ Astbury Argentina
May 31 - Santiago, Chile @ Teatro Teleton
Jun. 01 - Belo Horizonte, Brazil @ Music Hall
Jun. 02 - São Paulo, Brazil @ Hangar 110
Jun. 03 - Recife, Brazil @ Teatro Mauricio de Nassau
Jun. 04 - Porto Alegre, Brazil @ Bar Opinião

EXUMER's first album in 24 years, "Fire & Damnation", will be released in North America on April 10 via Metal Blade Records. The 10-track CD, which was recorded with renowned producer Waldemar Sorychta (GRIP INC., THERION, SODOM, MOONSPELL), "combines a punishing production with aggressive songwriting," according to a press release. "EXUMER manages to capture the intensity and feel of the 1980s thrash metal gems and yet sound up to date on their latest output."
