New York death metal legends SUFFOCATION have posted the following message on their official web site:
"SUFFOCATION will be touring the U.S. in November alongside FEAR FACTORY, HYPOCRISY and DECAPITATED. The dates are now being worked on and will be updated on our site as well as our MySpace profile, as soon as they are finalized. On another note we fully intend to have the new album out in time to coincide with the upcoming tour schedule. As for the DVD you fans have been asking for, it is not forgotten, it will follow the release of the album. All focus at this point has to be towards writing the best music we can for the new album which will be entitled 'Suffocation'. After 17 years in existence, we believe its due time. If it is possible to release the album and DVD at the same time, that will be the absolute goal."
SUFFOCATION's latest CD, "Souls to Deny", was released in April 2004 through Relapse Records. The band's first full album of new material since 1995's "Pierced From Within" was recorded at New York's Full Force Studios with engineer Joe Cincotta and is "the cleanest, heaviest SUFFOCATION album to date," according to drummer Mike Smith.
