Despised Icon Announce Album and Tour
All of you DI fanatics out there can rejoice as the band will be embarking on a massive North American headlining tour this fall with Through The Eyes of The Dead, ABACABB and Molotov Solution. This Lambgoat.com sponsored "Day of Mourning Tour" kicks off on Sept. 24th.
Alex Erian (vocals) further comments: "The 'Thrash and Burn' tour is almost halfway done already. Thanks to everyone that came out so far. The shows are huge. We'll be back on a massive headlining North American run in the fall with our new record in hand. We'll be sharing the stage with our homies in Through The Eyes Of The Dead, ABACABB and Molotov Solution. We haven't played with any of those dudes since 2007. Can't wait to meet up again and destroy a town near you! We'll be playing a bunch of cities that were skipped on 'Thrash and Burn' so come hang out.
"Also, we want to say thanks to everyone that checked out our new song 'MVP' on our MySpace. Your support and encouragement means a lot to us. We recently shot a video for the record's title track 'Day Of Mourning' with famed Montreal hip hop video producers Kartel Films. Expect to see cemeteries, fancy cars, 40's, hot b*****es and a double dose of brutality. Trust us, the video rules! We'll post the new song, along with pics and a making of the video soon.
"Our new MySpace layout is finally online. It has plenty of cool new features. We hope you like it. Also, for all you extreme drummers out there, we're getting ready to launch alexgrind.com in a couple of weeks. The site will be packed with drum clips, pics and news from the beast known as Alex Pelletier. This man isn't human. We look forward to seeing you all soon."
Despised Icon are currently annihilating audiences across the U.S. all summer long as part of the massive "Trash and Burn" package playing alongside DevilDriver, Emmure, Veil of Maya and a slew of others.
