According to a posting on METAL CHURCH's official web site, the band expects to resume its North American tour around February 16 following drummer Jeff Plate's recent disc flare-up. As a result, the following shows have also been cancelled:

Feb. 10 - Yucaipa, CA
Feb. 11 - Mexicali, Mexico
Feb. 12 - West Hollywood CA
Feb. 13 - San Francisco, CA
Feb. 14 - Portland, OR

The group hopes to announce make-up dates for these shows as soon as possible.

Escapi Music has set a February 23 German release date for a live METAL CHURCH DVD featuring the band's now 1991 performance at the Dynamo Open Air festival in Eindhoven, Holland. The footage features the band touring in support of its "The Human Factor" album with the following lineup:

Craig Marshall (guitars)
Craig Wells (guitars)
Duke Erickson (bass)

METAL CHURCH's video for the song "Mirror of Lies" has been posted online at this location (you must have Flash enabled to view the video). The clip was shot by Roax Films on the band's "Light in the Dark" summer European tour at the Wacken Open Air festival and in Hamburg at the Markthalle.

METAL CHURCH's latest album, "A Light in the Dark", was released in Europe on June 19, 2006 (June 27 in the U.S.) via SPV. The CD includes a new version of the classic "Watch the Children Pray" as a tribute to vocalist David Wayne, who passed away in May 2005.
