NAPALM DEATH Bassist: 'It's Going To Be A Sad Day When The Tour Finishes'

NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"The days are blurring as ever on tour [with BORN FROM PAIN and MENDEED] but there been some killer shows. Yesterday in Munich was amazing, I have to say. Overall a great day. I went into the city and saw some of the great architecture and came back to a crazy crowd. It really made me remember why I wanted to play in a band — lots of energy. Germany has really been amazing! Before that we celebrated Halloween in Slovenia which was a lot of fun — all three bands sharing a few beers after the show and of course Mitch's [Harris, guitar] birthday which he was surprisingly quiet for (I think he went for an early celebration the night before!). But many thanks to the guys at the club for a geat night. Friendships are getting stronger between the bands also, and it's going to be a sad day when the tour finishes, but hopefully we get play together again next year on the festivals."

NAPALM DEATH recently completed an extremely successful run on the "Monsters of Mayhem" U.S. tour with HATEBREED, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, EXODUS, FIRST BLOOD and DESPISED ICON in support of "Smear Campaign", its 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. The group also shot a video for the track "When All Is Said and Done", with up-and-coming director Kevin Wildt ("Set Your Goals", "The Warriors"); look for it early next month.

This fall NAPALM DEATH 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.
