Dismember - New Touring Drummer Revealed

According to Sweden's Close-Up magazine, long-running Swedish Death Metallers Dismember have tapped drummer Thomas Daun (ex-Repugnant, Insision, Subvision) for their upcoming European tour.

Dismember last month announced that it has parted ways with longtime drummer Fred Estby. "My decision to put my family in first hand makes it impossible to keep on touring and commit to the band full-time," Estby said in a statement. "I want to thank all the fans, friends, bands and all the other cool people I've met through the years and I wish Dismember all the best in the future."

Dismember is currently in the process of writing new material and "this sad loss will not interrupt any future plans in any way," the band wrote on its web site. "The commitment to keep on playing is stronger than ever!"

Dismember's latest album "The God That Never Was", was released in February 2006 via Regain Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Where Ironcrosses Grow" was once again produced by Estby at Sami Studio in Stockholm. The group's current lineup includes Matti Kärki (vocals), David Blomqvist (guitar), Martin Persson (guitar) and "newcomer" Tobias Christiansson on bass.

Dismember, Grave - Will Still Tour North America

After Entombed just announcing the cancellation of the Entombed/Dismember/Grave North American tour, Dismember and Grave both still want to play. Entombed were forced to cancel, through no fault of their own, their participation in the tour, but Thunderdome Touring have just announced the re-securing of both Dismember and Grave.

Here is a comment by Thunderdome Touring: "Our phones have been ringing non-stop and neither Dismember nor Grave want to let any of their fans down. The tour will go on, without Entombed or The Absence".

Entombed, Dismember, Grave - Tour Cancelled In North America

The previously announced Entombed/Dismember/Grave "The Absence North American" tour, which was scheduled to take place December 1-16, is now officially cancelled.

Entombed posted the following on the bands official myspace page:

'Due to circumstances beyond our control Entombed sadly has had to postpone their upcoming USA West Coast trek.

We were very much looking forward to this tour, but conflicts with the promotor, breach of trust and straight up lies have unfortunately forced us to cancel at the eleventh hour. Never in 15 years of touring the States has this happened, which really is saying something. We are appalled, and you should not be surprised if you see/hear more lies spread about how it is Entombed's fault that we could not do the tour because we changed our minds or some shit like that. Simply not true. We've never seen blame passed around like this ever before and deeply regret having lent our name to this madness.

We abominally want to apologise to good folks like Dinis of The Mighty Nimbus, who have taken time off work and rented a car to come see the show, but look forward to hitting American shores in 2007, hot on the heels of our upcoming studio album release, "Serpent Saints".'
