NAPALM DEATH: Long Island Concert Cancellation Explained

British grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH have posted the following message on their official web site:

"Many, many apologies to all our fans that turned up to [Friday night's, Nov. 24] show [at Club Ritual in Levittown, New York]. The club did not have a working PA/sound system. We tried to resolve the matter — our sound engineer even tried to repair the system with the promise from the club that they would buy some extra parts/speakers etc. They then backed out of that promise in the hopes that the bands would just play and sound like shit, i.e. no vocals, no mics… I guess they care more about their techno/rap club night then they do about holding metal/hardcore shows..."

NAPALM DEATH is in the middle of the "Death By Decibels" trek, their first U.S. headlining tour in more than five years. The Decibel magazine-sponsored trek 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.
