NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury has posted the following message on the band's official web site:
"Just played a blinding, sweaty hot show in Belfort, France... Hot and sweaty is the word — what a crazy show! Kids diving everywhere; very cool. It was so hot I even had to take my shirt off so apologies for the shock that may have caused but you got to do what you got to do.
"We are heading into the last week of the tour now and we now face a very long drive to Bilbao, Spain where I am sure its only going to get crazier — lots of old-school friends to see so I am psyched. Paris yesterday was a fucking amazing show also.
"A massive thanks to everyone who is coming out and getting into what we do.
"Oh yeah — and Cologne in Germany last week rocked as well, so again thanks, and I hope the next week of shows is as good as the last weeks have been."
This fall, the seminal grindcore pioneers will annihilate the masses on the "Death By Decibels" tour, their first U.S. headlining tour in more than five years. The Decibel magazine-sponsored trek kicks off on November 15 and also features A LIFE ONCE LOST, DEAD TO FALL and ANIMOSITY in the support slots, with ARSIS and IMPALED joining on select dates.
NAPALM DEATH recently completed an extremely successful run on the Monsters of Mayhem U.S. tour with HATEBREED, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, EXODUS, FIRST BLOOD and DESPISED ICON in support of "Smear Campaign", their highly acclaimed new album. The disc, produced once again with Russ Russel, is an uncompromising, ferocious assault that continues to address serious social issues that plague today's society.
