KATAKLYSM singer Maurizio Iacono has issued the following update:
"First off, I want to sincerely thank everyone involved with The Invaluable Darkness Tour we just completed with our friends DIMMU BORGIR. We would like to thank them for treating us like brothers and to all their crew for helping us out when we needed it. This new friendship is forged in blood! Thanks also to DEVILDRIVER whom we shared a bus with and developed a new friendship. Last but not least, the dudes in UNEARTH, all cool people. This tour was a triumph for us in all senses, especially to be able to play for our fans on a bigger package, who proved to us everyday that all the blood and sweat wasn't for nothing. The words of encouragement from our fans mean EVERYTHING.
"We're gonna finish writing a new album, titled 'Prevail', this summer, because we know how important this one will be for our fans, and 'prevail' is exactly what we want to do with this album. It has to be as perfect as we can make it. If it doesn't bring the goosebumps, it ain't coming out right. Guitarist J-F Dagenais will produce and engineer the album as always. In the meantime, we have two more tours planned this year: late summer or early fall in North America and in Europe in October with BEHEMOTH and ABORTED. A big thank you to all our supporters worldwide. We won't disappoint — you know how we roll!"
