Swedish melodic thrash/death metal band ENEMY IS US has issued the following update:
"Unfortunately, we had to cancel the [previously announced] Euro tour due to the fact that Ronnie [Nyman; vocals] suffer to acute bronchitis. It's an inflammation in the lungs that can progress in to pneumonia. So a tour right now in not an option. But don't worry! We are already planing a new tour later this summer! See you on the road!"
The second album from ENEMY IS US, titled "Venomized", was released last June in the U.S. through Tribunal Records and in Europe through Bastardized Recordings, "Venomized" contains 11 tracks co-engineered by Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES, SOILWORK). The album was mixed and mastered by the band's bass player Lawrence Mackrory (ex-DARKANE, SCARVE).
Commented the group: "Not a surprising comment, but nonetheless true, 'Venomized' is our best offering yet. However, since it's only our second album, it wasn't really an impossible task to accomplish. We've grown so much as a band these last couple of years and also the addition of our new drummer Olle has made us a stronger, tighter unit. We're so pleased with the way this album turned out. It's very diverse and we think there's a little bit in there for every metalhead. The production is top notch and face-ripping and we simply can't wait for you to hear it."
