GHOULUNATICS Drummer Suffers Ankle Injury, Band Cancel Show

Montreal deathcore act GHOULUNATICS have been forced to cancel their previously announced performance in Trois-Rivières, Quebec next Saturday, April 17 because of an injury sustained by their drummer Brian. "He hurt his ankle on Monday night while playing outside with his son Milan," the band write in a statement. "At the time I am writing this, he can't walk on it and his leg is very swollen. His doctor says he shouldn't walk on it for at least 3 days. Brian will be getting new X-rays after the swelling has gone down…Let's hope it’s nothing serious!

"We would like to apologize to the promoters of the show and to the fans that were looking forward to seeing us again. This is only the second time in our 10-year existence we have had to pull out of a show at the last minute, but it is out of our control and we will return to Trois-Rivières for sure! We hope the injury will not end up being serious and that we’ll be back in our jam room preparing for the next show soon….

"This does not affect the other show dates and record launch parties scheduled for the month of May."

GHOULUNATICS' fourth studio album, "Sabacthany", is scheduled for release on May 4 through Galy Records. A live allbum, entitled "It's Alive!", will receive a simultaneous release and will be available as a mid-price CD so it will be sold at a lower price than a regular one.

"Sabacthany" (view cover here) was recorded at Wild Studio by Yannick St-Amand, and was mixed and mastered by Pierre Rémillard (CRYPTOPSY, KRISIUN, GORGUTS). "It's Alive!" (view cover here) was recorded on Halloween 2003 in Montreal, Canada by Mathieu Bérubé, and was mixed and mastered by Yannick St-Amand.
