Former SORTILEGE Singer To Perform At Germany's KEEP IT TRUE XII Festival

The organizers of the Keep It True XII festival which is scheduled to take place April 24-25, 2009 at Tauberfrankenhalle in Lauda-Knigshofen, Germany have issued the following update:

"Since Keep It True I, we tried to get ['80s French heavy metal gods] SORTILEGE for our festival, 'cause I think they were always the best band ever from France, but unfortunately it never happened but we tried for five years now. But now we took the chance to make it possible to hear these hymns of French steel for the first time in Germany. Original singer Christian 'Zouille' Augustin will perform 'A Night Of SORTILEGE' with an all-star French metal band (including SATAN JOKERS member) on Keep It True XII. This will be the only possibility to hear these songs 'cause the other bandmember do not have any interest in a full SORTILEGE reunion, but I think with the original singer we have the most important part. I hope this will make you all happy, 'cause it took us five long years to make this possible and our hearts are totally into it. Many thanks also to Holger from G.O.M. Records, without whom this all would not have been possible."
