EPICA Postpones Mexican, Colombian Dates

November 27, 2007

Dutch female-fronted symphonic metallers EPICA have postponed their previously announced Mexican and Colombian dates due to an illness suffered by the group's lead singer, Simone Simons. A video message from the group announcing the postponement can be viewed below.

The affected dates are as follows:

Nov. 29 - Circo Volador - Mexico City Mexico
Nov. 30 - Teatro Estudio Cavaret - Guadalajara Mexico
Dec. 01 - Cafe Iguana - Monterrey Mexico
Dec. 05 - Downtown Majestic - Bogota Colombia
Dec. 07 - Country San Manuel - Puebla Mexico
Dec. 08 - Skyros concert and music hall - San Luis Potosi Mexico
Dec. 09 - Circo Volador - Mexico City Mexico

EPICA played a gig last night (November 26) at the Melkweg in Amsterdam, Holland without Simone, with the group's setlist consisting of mostly "grunt-oriented" songs.

Nuclear Blast Records released a limited deluxe CD edition in Europe of EPICA's new album, "The Divine Conspiracy", featuring the bonus tracks "Higher High" and "Replica" (FEAR FACTORY cover),video clips and a "making-of" enhanced section.

"The Divine Conspiracy" was mixed by Sascha Paeth and features a session appearance by GOD DETHRONED drummer Ariƫn van Weesenbeek. EPICA has yet to name a full-time drummer following the departure of Jeroen Simons in 2006.

As previously reported, EPICA has been confirmed as the support act for SYMPHONY X on their upcoming North American tour in April/May.
