Back from "Under Attack"-Tour Pt. 2

"Hey everybody we are back home, had time to relax and are now working on THRASH ANTHEMS II already. We wanna thank all the fans that came to he second leg of our UNDER ATTACK European tour. We really do appreciate the support in rather difficult times in many East European countries – you people rocked our roundtrip big time.  Due the icecold winter this year, it wasn`t always easy and we were all fighting the usual influenza, annoying fever and a cough from hell that didn´t wanna go away.

The shows in Stockholm, Katowice, Kosice and Sofia been the highlights of this tour, many other shows were really awesome as well – you maniacs ruled the pit!

In the end of our adventurous voyage we were facing some organizational issues and some diverse contractual difficulties. We had to cancel one show due the lack of professional equipment & environment plus serious safety issues – it is always really frustrating to not play a concert when you have traveled for hours and hours. We partly understood the anger of the disappointed Italian fans, we were devastated as well but all lies spread by unprofessional local promoters will have consequences in future bookings of the band. Dignity, honor and honesty have to be part of this business.

We will not gamble anymore to discover new places and face risky and venturous events and markets. Yes it was curious and amazing in the same time but we are not able do continue this way.  We did this traveling circus now for many decades and will give this task now to all those young and wild bands that will follow our path and are ready to discover the end of the world …good luck with that!

Cheers for 34 years of metal-history folks - it was a pleasure!"

Destruction to record THRASH ANTHEMS II with the support of the fans!

The band has decided to record THRASH ANTHEMS II (a “best of” follow up to the original Thrash Anthems) with a crowd funding campaign through PledgeMusic. Singer SCHMIER states: 

“This way we have full control and can work this out independently with the fans. I think that this is an interesting and challenging new way to release a first edition of the album. Besides the album, we are also offering some goodies from the bands’ eventful history! As a long running band, we have seen many stages in the music industry, and this is definitely a fantastic exchange between the fans and the band without disturbing business in between! “

Check out the link to the THRASH ANTHEMS II PledgeMusic campaign, including all important information, here: www.pledgemusic.com/destruction

The fans can exclusively be a part of the whole procedure and the record with their contribution. THRASH ANTHEMS II items can ONLY be pre-ordered at the PledgeMusic page.

SHOW IN FOGGIA/ITALY CANCELLED!

We are very sorry to inform you, that we cannot do our show in FOGGIA tonight. Due to lack of technical requirements, inadequate environment and safety reasons from the venue it is impossible to do a metal show In this environment.

A cancellation is always a sad thing - all other shows will go ahead!
