In other news, PESTILENCE will embark on its first-ever tour of South America in February. So far the following dates have been announced:

PESTILENCE recently completed work on a new studio album entitled "Doctrine". The CD will be released later in the year through Mascot Records.
Regarding the direction of the band's new music, PESTILENCE guitarist/vocalist Patrick Mameli previously stated, "The new material will sound, again, way different from the previous albums, and is going to top all previous PESTILENCE material, stated by insiders already.
"The new songs have the rawness of [1989's] 'Consuming Impulse', the theatrical [quality] of 1991's 'Testimony Of The Ancients' and the brutallity of [2009's comeback effort] 'Resurrection Macabre'. But this time we will try to top all our material by using the RG2228-GK [Ibanez guitar]."
PESTILENCE last year completed its first U.S. tour in over 16 years. The 17-date trek kicked off in Baltimore as part of the Maryland Deathfest on May 30 and closed at the Gramercy Theater in New York City on June 17. Support on the tour came from WARBRINGER, VITAL REMAINS, ENFOLD DARKNESS and SACRIFICIAL SLAUGHTER.
