Former CRADLE OF FILTH Drummer To Tour With DEATHSTARS In Europe

Drummer Adrian Erlandsson (NEMHAIN, ex-CRADLE OF FILTH) will play drums for the industrial goth metal band DEATHSTARS on their upcoming European tour as the support act for KORN. However, due to "prior arrangements," Adrian won't join the tour until January 25 in London.

DEATHSTARS' regular drummer, Bone W Machine, is sitting out the tour due to "personal reasons." "I hope you all understand this and don't throw an EMO fit [over the fact that I am not doing the tour]," Bone writes in a statement. "And no, I am not leaving the band."

DEATHSTARS entered Metrosonic Recording Studios in New York City on October 29 to begin recording of their new album for a spring 2008 release via Nuclear Blast Records. According to the group, "this album will start another chapter in [DEATHSTARS'] history of vanity, darkness, blood and sleaze."

The band adds, "The recording sessions will continue throughout November and December and the mix is set for January so get prepared for a 2008 filled with exploding deathglam!"

DEATHSTARS' sophomore album, "Termination Bliss", entered the German Media Control chart in February 2006 at position No. 87.

DEATHSTARS was honored with the "Best Newcomer" award at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards on June 11, 2007 at Koko in London, England.

In existence since January 2000 (formerly known as SWORDMASTER), DEATHSTARS features in its ranks former DISSECTION drummer Ole Öhman and guitarist Emil Nödtveidt (brother of late DISSECTION leader Jon).
