FLOTSAM AND JETSAM Drummer: BANG YOUR HEAD Festival Was Best Time This Band Has Had In Europe

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM drummer Craig Nielsen has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"All I can say is that this year's Bang Your Head festival [in Germany] was by far the best time this band has EVER had in Europe. The whole event was extremely well organized, smooth, and incredible to be part of. The fans were going ####ing nuts. The band played a great performance, the vibe was definitely all around us. This is why we have stayed in this game for all this time, for shows just like this. And as we have just officially heard, presales for our July 7 show at the House Of Blues in Hollywood with DEATH ANGEL and ARMORED SAINT are already way better than expected. Over 500 already, which is great for Hollywood, typically a walk-up city. Should be just going off with metalheads! Then we play the next night in Las Vegas at the Cheyenne Saloon, the club where recently Ted Nugent, Sebastian Bach, and Scott Ian put on the map with their 'SuperGroup' taping."

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM's "Live In Japan" DVD was released in February via Crash Music, Inc. The disc was filmed over three shows in Japan in January of 2004.

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM's latest album, "Dreams of Death", is available now on Crash Music, Inc. The CD was engineered by Tom Giatron and produced by FLOTSAM AND JETSAM and Tom Giatron at Genesis Studios in Phoenix. Travis Smith did the cover art.

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM was formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1984 by bassist Jason Newsted, who eventually left the band to join METALLICA. The group's current lineup is completed by Eric A.K. (vocals), Jason Ward (bass), Ed Carlson (guitar) and Mark Simpson (guitar).
