SOULFLY bassist Bobby Burns has posted the following message on the band's official message board:
"Yes yes yes... [The European] tour's been fuckin' killer! That's a fact and we owe it all to the fans for the support and I personally thank you all... Tonight, somewhere in France (sorry but the name escapes me), another sold-out show!!!!!!
"We have a very long year ahead of us and we're all looking forward to it for sure.. Five-week U.S. tour after this and after that a few more months in Europe for the festivals... For ME, I'd rather be playing venues like we have been on this tour instead of festivals. Just because the crowds at the festivals are so far away from the stage and the set times are always different so you really never get into a vibe or daily ritual like you do when the tour is yours. But the upside to the festivals is getting to see a lot of other bands play that you dig, shit like that. I mean GUNS N' fuckin' ROSES MAY ACTUALLY SHOW UP this summer for the shows we're playing, haha!!!! That's going to be a laugh and I hope they rock and don't start riots and get people killed and shit like that..."
SOULFLY will embark on a U.S. mini-tour in late April, with support from INCITE (featuring SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera's stepson Ritchie), Century Media recording artists MANNTIS, and Victory Records' A PERFECT MURDER. The band are continuing to promote their latest album, "Dark Ages", available now on Roadrunner Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Prophecy" was produced by Cavalera and was mixed by Terry Date, who has previously worked with PANTERA and DEFTONES, among others.
