SACRIFICE Comment On Planned Reissues By DISPLEASED RECORDS

A legal representative for Canadian thrashers SACRIFICE and Brazil's Marquee Records — which recently re-released SACRIFICE's "Torment In Fire" and "Forward To Termination" as double CDs in limited-edition hand-numbered slipcases that contain massive booklets with liner notes, live pictures and personal comments from the band — has issued the following statement regarding the announcement by Displeased Records that they were going to re-releasing the group's catalog beginning sometime this fall:

"Regarding the recent events involving Displeased Records and their interest in releasing albums in which performances of the band SACRIFICE are featured, I would like to state that the band SACRIFICE did not authorize the release of any albums by the aforementioned record label.

"The band SACRIFICE has signed a licensing agreement with Marquee Records, and all proper legal measures in order to safeguard the rights granted on this contract will be taken."

As previously reported, SACRIFICE will reunite for the first time in 15 years for one night only as headliner of Day Of The Equinox II festival taking place on Saturday, September 23, 2006 in Toronto, Ontario at the Opera House.

The Canadian band's original lineup of guitarist/singer Rob Urbinati, guitarist Joe Rico, bassist Scott Watts and drummer Gus Pynn will be performing tracks from their classic metal releases: "Torment In Fire" (1986), "Forward To Termination" (1987) and "Soldiers of Misfortune" (1990).
