As BLABBERMOUTH.NET first reported on June 15, DIMMU BORGIR has recruited Tony Laureano (NILE, ANGELCORPSE) to sit behind the kit for the group's next two shows following the announcement that the band's regular drummer drummer Jan Axel von Blomberg (a.k.a. Hellhammer) has broken his arm.

Laureano previously played with DIMMU BORGIR as a session drummer at Ozzfest 2004 after the group's then-skinsman, Danish drummer Reno Kiilerich (PANZERCHRIST, EXMORTEM, VILE), was unable to obtain a U.S. work visa in time to join the band on the road.

DIMMU BORGIR will play the following shows with Tony Laureano behind the kit:

Jun. 23 - Graspop Metal Meeting - Dessel, Belgium
Jun. 29 - Hell City Festival - Stjørdal, Norway

DIMMU BORGIR's latest album, "In Sorte Diaboli", has sold just under 40,000 copies in the United States in since its late April release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album premiered with 14,000 units — more than double the 6,400 opening-week number achieved by its predecessor, "Death Cult Armageddon", which came out in September 2003 and landed at position No. 169 on The Billboard 200 chart.
