OBITUARY frontman John Tardy has posted the following message on the group's official web site:
"We just got home last week after almost a month in Europe and it was absolutely great! I first have to say thank you to all of our fans that came out and supported us. You guys are the greatest! We almost didn't do the tour because we had a number of people (agencies, promoters etc...) say that we should do the album first. Because we haven't done anything for a few years we felt that we needed to get out and make sure people know that we are back and writing music. There has been so much talk about us 'splitting up' and this and that that we felt it necessary to get out and let it be known that we are back! I think that even half way though the tour there was doubt in some peoples mind that the tour would even happen. So thanks to all of you who showed up and supported us. It was an incredible set of shows!!!! Next, thank you to MASTER and VISCERAL BLEEDING! It was a pleasure getting to know you and playing with you. I wish you both the best of luck and hope you keep in touch!
"I planned on getting the site updated by now with a full tour report and photos but got home with a nice cold that has kept me on the couch and not wanted to do anything for most of the week. I am feeling much better today and will start putting those photos together. I wish I could have done more while on the road but just didn't have the capabilities to do so. Next year things will be different and I will keep it going while on the road. I will get all the tour stuff together and talk to you all next week!!!"
