Bay Area thrash metal legends DEATH ANGEL were forced to play their Canadian dates including last night's (June 10) show in Quebec City, Quebec as a four-piece after bassist Dennis Pepa was denied entry at the Canadian border.
Pictures of the Quebec City gig can be found on Capitale du Metal.
DEATH ANGEL is currently making waves with its first North American tour in years, the "In Thrash We Trust" trek also featuring GOD FORBID, SOILENT GREEN, ARSIS and LIGHT THIS CITY.
Artist Joshua Emerick, who has previously worked with THE BEATLES, CKY, SOCIAL DISTORTION and SONIC YOUTH, has created a DEATH ANGEL-themed comic book in collaboration with the DEATH ANGEL bandmembers. An interview with Joshua Emerick conducted by the renowned comic- and toy-oriented magazine Wizard and artwork from the comic can be found at this location.
The band recently filmed a video for the song "Dethroned" with director Robert Sexton (THE DWARVES, AMEN, MONDO GENERATOR) in Santa Paula, California.
Released on February 26, 2008 via Nuclear Blast Records, DEATH ANGEL's latest album, "Killing Season", sold approximately 2,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album was recorded at Studio 606 in Northridge, California with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who has previously worked with FOO FIGHTERS, RUSH, VELVET REVOLVER, SHADOWS FALL and STONE SOUR, among other acts.
