NAPALM DEATH Planning Back-To-Basics, Old-School U.K. Tour

January 18, 2007

NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury has posted the following message on the band's MySpace page:

"[I'm] In Finland enjoying what so far has been a killer tour and we still have so many shows and places to look forward to. [It's] fucking cold, though.

"Anyway, we have the idea for sometime now to hopefully put together a U.K. tour of smaller clubs and pubs, as we haven't really toured the U.K. as much as we would have loved in the past. Occasionally, we have been to places as in Newtown, Wales where we met so many fans and saw such response to a local gig that they aranged there for some local bands that we got to thinking. Well, maybe we could do an extensive tour in smaller towns in the U.K. and play cities and towns that no one goes to.

"In a nutshell, we would love to hear from serious local promoters around the United Kingdom who would be up for such an idea. I know there's an abundance of killer up-and-coming grind/hardcore/death metal bands who will hopefully be into playing their local towns with us also. I have heard from a couple of promoters over the past couple of months and we haven't forgotten about you guys

"Please only serious enquiries but we would love to see this happen one day soon with killer local opening bands who can maybe help spread the word old-school style so we can all have some killer killer/fun shows."

As previously reported, the NAPALM DEATH video for "When All Is Said and Done" is now available on Century Media's YouTube page. The clip was shot by up-and-coming director Kevin Wildt (INTO ETERNITY). Click here to check it out.

NAPALM DEATH recently completed a U.S. tour in support of "Smear Campaign", the band's highly acclaimed new album. The disc, produced once again with Russ Russel, is an uncompromising, ferocious assault that continues to address serious social issues that plague today's society.
