Hey you crazy muthafuckas!!!
Just wanted to give you an update on recent happenings. First off, we are super stoked to have legendary bassist Steve Di Giorgio back to the fold! The band had a blast playing Australia’s Soundwave, dates in Japan, Indonesia’s Kukar Rockin’ Fest, and Germany’s Rock Hard Fest. We’ve been doing select shows and tours to take some time to write the new record. There’s a European run starting this week (see tour section for cities), a gig at the Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale and Motorhead’s Motorboat Cruise in September, and the huge Knotfest in October. So come out to see us on the road for these dates, then it’s back to writing! Prepare to get THRASHED!!!

Hell & Heaven Metal Fest 2014 Official Statement:
To all metal fans, metal bands, followers press and social media, it is very sad to inform you that the HELL & HEAVEN METAL FEST 2014, that was planned to do on TEXCOCO FAIR on march 15Th and 16Th 2014 was canceled by ESTADO DE MÉXICO (STATE GOVERNMENT) after beeing supported by local government of TEXCOCO.
The reasons of this determinant cancellation by the ESTATE GOVERNMENT which strangely spread immediately to the federal level , were for unknown fundamental matters that make clear that this decision goes beyond the reasons the State Government presented.
Still we thank all the state and municipal governments who expressed their total support and interest to make this festival in their own entities
With sadness and disappointment we realize that having relationships and interests at the highest levels has more relevance than generating opportunities for emergent projects and building healthy competition whose sole purpose is to bring quality international shows to our country.
We greatly appreciate the full support of all who were always with us and sent us words of encouragement , metal fans , groups, agencies , media and sponsors
The Festival Production did make its best to get this festival come true , unfortunately we’ve been victims of strong politics interests, that goes beyond cultural matters .
Reimbursement tickets information , will be released as son as possible in the official festivals website and Superboletos.com
Finally, HELL & HEAVEN METAL FEST 2014 will not take place on march 15Th and 16Th… However we´re looking to reschedule bands and dates and as soon as we can We will announce how and where the festival will take place.
It doesn’t matter how much intolerance exist , the metal will not be silenced ! We stand with the support of the entire metal community because THE HELL AND HEAVEN METAL FEST is for all…
