AUGURY Returns With Original Lineup

Montreal's progressive death metallers AUGURY have released the following statement:

"It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of [bassist] Dominic 'Forest' Lapointe and [drummer] Étienne Gallo to AUGURY. The writing process has begun with all the original members, and the band is focused 100% on the new album.

"We wish to thank Antoine Baril, Christian Pacaud, and Sébastien Pittet, for their loyal services and for the incredible help they've been to the band, as well as live musicians Tommy McKinnon and Robin Stone.

"The time has come for AUGURY to birth a new interplanetary opus, faithful to the original spirit of the group, which made its reputation with its two first albums, 'Concealed' and 'Fragmentary Evidence'."

Formed in Montreal, Quebec at the end of 2001, AUGURY immediately made an impact in the Canadian death metal scene with its technical/classically inspired progressive death metal attack. The unit entered the studio with Yannick St-Amand (MARTYR, UNEXPECT) in 2004 to record their "Concealed" debut. The record was mixed by Jean-Francois Dagenais (KATAKLYSM, MISERY INDEX) and then set loose upon the anxious public. After the release of "Concealed", AUGURY signed with Nuclear Blast Records, who in 2009 unveiled the band's critically acclaimed 2009 album "Fragmentary Evidence", further cementing the band's name into the upper ranks of the progressive death scene.

AUGURY 2012 is:

Patrick Loisel - Guitar, Vocals
Mathieu Marcotte - Guitar
Dominic "Forest" Lapointe - Bass
Étienne Gallo - Drums
