News From The Bunker


Grrrrrrrrrrrrreetings one and all, and in an "action" packed news update this time, I shall enlighten you all on all things that matter concerning the band. First we will be engaging in some more live performances on English soil in August with our ancient comrades SLOUGH FEG (America's finest). It's been over a decade since we last shared the stage together, during the "APOCALYPSE NOW" European tour of 2000, and we are very much looking forward to another bout of heavy metal madness. Although both bands line ups have changed considerably since then, you can expect nothing but the best. SLOUGH FEG themselves will be playing across Europe, in Portugal, Germany and Holland etc so check their site for full details. The dates in England are as follows -

Thursday August 4th -
London, Highbury Garage
 

SOLSTICE (UK)
SLOUGH FEG (USA)
THE DEAD RESURRECTED (UK)

Friday August 5th -
Birmingham or Bristol TBC


SOLSTICE (UK)
SLOUGH FEG (USA)
THE DEAD RESURRECTED (UK)


Saturday August 6th -
Bradford, 1in 12 Club


SOLSTICE (UK)
SLOUGH FEG (USA)
ASOMVEL (UK)
ATLANTEAN KODEX (GER)
DEVIL (NOR)
THE DEAD RESURRECTED (UK)

and 1 more TBC

Joining us on all the dates, will be ex-SOLSTICE guitar player Lee Baines and his new band, THE DEAD RESURRECTED. And, most importantly vocals will possibly be handled for us again by General Felipe Plaza of PROCESSION, as although we are actively auditioning candidates for the position this month, it would seem unlikely that whoever gets the position (Which we will decide upon in June after a second round) will be ready to the standard we require in time for the gigs. But, as ever, we shall see.

Tickets for the London show are already available from the following outlets

Ticketweb :

HMV Tickets :

We have two old shirt designs available once again from BLOOD & IRON Merch in Germany which is run by Hermann and Andrea of METAL SUPREMACY. The old "NEW DARK AGE" design with logo and Rune script and the "BLOOD FIRE DOOM" design. Please email Andrea at metalsupremacy.andrea(at)gmail.com for more info and ordering. We will also have these available at the August gigs if you desire to purchase one from us.

And finally, we will be playing in Portugal, Greece, Holland, Ireland and Germany as soon as we can. Please be patient, we are working at our own pace, progressively getting heavier and tighter and composing the new material for our next album. By the time we do play some of these countries, which will be later this year, we would like to be incorporating more than one new song into our set. As we've stated before, it's our intention to move on again, unlike so many other bands who dwell on past and imagined glories. And so, until the next time, ale & Kill.
