OBITUARY: Back Home In Florida After Five 'Awesome' European Festival Appearances

August 17, 2005

OBITUARY frontman John Tardy has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"After a long several days of travel we got home late Sunday wiped out! Five awesome festivals in Germany, Belgium, Hungary, Czech Republic and Spain! This was another great trip filled with lot of awesome bands like KORN and MOTÖRHEAD and hundreds of thousands of fans! My Internet was down when I got home and it took me three days to get the cable company out here to fix it. Then I also found out that my router, switch and network card all got fried by lightning! Good thing I had my webcam unplugged! That is why it has taken me a few days to get the site updated. I have been playing computer repair man here all day but I got it all up and running! This also marks the first time in my many years of travel through Europe that I did not eat at McDonalds! Not by choice, because I would have thrown back a Big Mac in a second, but we just didn't get the chance."

OBITUARY are touring in support of their latest CD, "Frozen in Time", available now on Roadrunner Records.

The group's first collection of new songs since 1997's "Back from the Dead", "Frozen in Time" was self-produced by the band, with Mark Prator and Scott Burns engineering, and was mastered by Tom Morris at Morrisound.

OBITUARY will be embarking on a U.S. tour with NAPALM DEATH and DEAD TO FALL beginning in early September.
