Aborted Confirm Cancellation Of Spring Tour With Napalm Death, Etc.

It looks like Napalm Death‘s spring tour with Aborted, Tombs, and WVRM has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Aborted confirmed the news on Facebook.

Aborted commented:

“Hey everyone,

We wanted to give you guys some good news in these dark days but unfortunately seems like nothing is spared from the Covid-19 outbreak. Due to all the measures in place (which everyone should follow, mind you), we have to cancel our upcoming tour with Napalm death, Tombs and WVRM.

We feel that we as artists have to do our part as well in urging people to help flatten the curve and take part in social distancing for a while. In the meanwhile this leaves us, along with many others, with a huge financial deficit as our tour merch was already printed, plus work visas; flights; deposits etc were already paid for and it puts us in a very sh***y situation.

We won’t ever ask for a gofundme or anything from anyone. But if you planned on coming to one of the shows and get some merch and you want to support us if possible at all, you can now grab out tour merch from indiemerch and help us resolve this financial catastrophe.

Now is the time to support the bands you love, support them by streaming their music; buying the records and merch as this will be the sole source of income for many of us for the unforeseeable future.

In the meantime we will be working on a tour to replace this one with when possible and write the next album while we are stuck at home like everyone else. Hoping all of you are safe and doing well, thank you in advance and take care of your loved ones.

Sven, Stefano, Ken, Ian & Harrison

*Everything will start shipping next week, we are working through getting it in the system so they will show on pre-order at the moment*”

Aborted Premiere New Song “Gloom And The Art Of Tribulation”

Aborted have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Gloom And The Art Of Tribulation.” This track is from the band’s new EP “La Grande Mascarade,” which will be released on April 17. Vocalist Svencho commented:

“Alright, alright alright. It’s time for whoop ass! Here it is you lovely death mongers and gore maniacs, the brand spanking new single ‘Gloom and the Art of Tribulation’. Enjoy this little poem about flowers, leaky buttholes and the emancipation of my ingrowing toe nails! As Joe Rogan said once: listen to Aborted, DO IT NAAAWWW! Lyric video by the people from Aimed & framed and the noise has been orchestrated to sound sick by Kohle! We hope you guys enjoy it! Don’t forget to snag the VERY LAST copies of our pre-order bundle while you can! YARRR”

Guitarist Harrison Patuto Officially Joins Aborted

Aborted have officially welcomed Harrison Patuto (ex-Vale Of Pnath, etc.) to the band as their new guitarist. He is replacing Mendel bij de Leij, who exited the band last year.

Aborted commented:

“Up and atom! Faster than a shark, sharper than a scalpel and has more cats than your regular disgruntled cat lady, we have a permanent replacement for Mendel – ladies and gents, please welcome Harrison Patuto as the official 5th member of the band.”

Patuto added:

“It is with great pleasure that I announce my permanence within the band of Aborted. This past year has been a surplus of hard work and good times, as we performed a total of 82 shows together. There were big shoes to fill for me, but the dedication, effort, talent and kindness of the guys has made it all the more easy for me to feel at home. There are exciting things ahead, and I could not be more honoured to be a part of it.”

You can see footage of Patuto performing “Exquisite Convinous Drama” below:
