Seattle-based NEVERMORE have announced that TESTAMENT axeman Steve Smyth will handle rhythm guitar duties during the band's upcoming North American tour. The trek, which kicks off on November 7 in Buffalo, New York, will also feature appearances by CHILDREN OF BODOM, DIMMU BORGIR and HYPOCRISY. Jeff Loomis (guitar) checks in with the following update, "To all NEVERMORE fans, we would just like to say we had a great time on tour with ARCH ENEMY in Europe. Most of the shows were sold out or close to sold out. The way it should be!!!! We're all looking forward to the U.S tour coming up in a few weeks, and hope to see all our friends, family and fans out on the road. Hearing about the buzz of the tour so far, we can tell it's going to be insane!! See you all soon." This will be the group's first full U.S. tour in support of their latest release "Enemies of Reality". Their new video for the album's title track can currently be seen on "Headbanger's Ball".
