German Thrashers EXUMER have partnered up with Stereokiller to provide a special, limited stream of their new album Fire & Damnation. The album can be heard now HERE between Friday, April 6th and April 13th!
Fire & Damnation is released in Germany / Austria / Switzerland today, April 06, on Metal Blade Records and will be unleashed worldwide April 9th in Europe/UK and April 10th in North America.
Vocalist Mem Von Stein addresses the fans: "It's been a wild ride for the past 27 years since we first formed the band, and it's been even a crazier ride for the past 4 since we decided to reform EXUMER.
But here we are, stronger and wiser, and still with the same mission in mind: to create some of the most intense thrash metal on the planet! It's been a long wait for us and for you, the fans, but we hope the wait was well worth it!
Our first album in 25 years drops in Germany today - where the ride began in 1985 -, and also in Austria and Switzerland. As always we want to thank you for standing with us throughout all these years!
We will see you on tour, but until then enjoy Fire & Damnation! SPREAD THE FIRE!!"
Exumer have been confirmed to headline the "Metal on the Rocks" Festival in Mexico City on May 4th, 2012. The festival will also feature U.S. based MORBID SAINT, INQUISITION from Colombia, Mexican act RAGNELL and others. Exumer were slated to play in Mexico in December 2010, but were not able to travel due problems with the local promoters at the time. Two additional shows in Mexico have been added on May 5th and 6th, making it a total of three events for Exumer in the country!
Mem Von Stein comments: "We were devastated when we learned that we were not able to play those shows in Mexico in 2010. It was the first time in our career that we had to cancel a series of live shows in a country that has some of the most loyal and devoted metal fans on the planet.
We hope that we can make it up to the fans this time around and are proud to premier a brand new live set that will include songs from our brand new album Fire & Damnation, for the very first time in Mexico!"
