French metallers SCARVE have posted the following message on their official web site:
"Home safe again, y'all… We had a bomb-blast taking a part in the European MESHUGGAH tour!!! As if this wasn't enough of a feast by itself, we were so lucky to replace BLACK LABEL SOCIETY at the Waldrock [festival] mainstage in front of 7000 maniacs! Now we know the real adrenaline flow!!! Less fun was the fact that we couldn't play in Bochum (Germany) because the sound equipment had been installed too late… Never before had something this silly happened to us: leaving the stage in front of the crowd without even having the chance to play a single note. All our apologies to the people there who came to see us, we were just as disappointed as you, and we'll most definitely be back soon!
"Some extra fast blastbeats go out to MESHUGGAH and their crew, some of the nicest people we’ve met so far — thank you so much for taking us with you!!! Huge thanks also to all our friends and fans for coming to see the shows, to the promoters for their great work, and to all the people who sent us their pictures — we'll post some right here very soon. Even more eargrinding riffage to Johann from CHANGER and his killer team, as well as all the super nice people in Reykjavik for providing us with three full days of complete amazement! Iceland rules, folks!!!"
As previously reported, SCARVE will enter the studio next winter to begin recording the follow-up to last year's "Irradiant", tentatively due in early 2006. The band have also postponed plans to have their debut album, "Translucence" (originally released in 2000),reissued in 2005 with a bonus DVD. "Preparing the bonus DVD is taking more time than expected, and we really want this to be a killer package!" the band write on their web site. A 2006 release is expected.
SCARVE's Dirk Verbeuren will spend much of 2005 touring with SOILWORK after having laid down the drum tracks for the group's new album, "Stabbing the Drama".
