German progressive black metallers SECRETS OF THE MOON have issued the following update:
"We received lots of questions regarding the SECRETS OF THE MOON/ENSLAVED tour which has been announced by several promoters across Europe. Fact is: we will NOT support ENSLAVED on their European tour. The tour has been booked with us on the bill, but unfortunately we were not able to observe the first deadline of the new album. We apologize for these disarrangements. ENSLAVED will, of course, play the tour and we wish them all the best for their upcoming album. However, there will be massive touring around the globe when our new album is out and we hope to announce first dates by the end of this year."
SECRETS OF THE MOON recently parted ways with guitarist A.D.
A.D., who had significant input in the songwriting for the band's latest album, "Antithesis" (2006), explained his decision: "Due to my all-dominant negativity, I cannot extract a single good aspect from representing my music live on stage any more. Thus the time on the road has been horrible for me. After I hit rock bottom the last time I decided to stop it all."
SECRETS OF THE MOON belongs to the most prestigious group of bands in the German black metal underground, with their first demo release dating back to 1995. The band was formed out of the ashes of one of the very first black metal outfits stemming from German scene, MARTYRIUM.
