Fleshgod Apocalypse Postpone North American Tour Due To Coronavirus

Fleshgod Apocalypse have postponed their North American tour with The Agonist due to travel restrictions related to the coronavirus. The band are currently working on rescheduling the dates for later this year.

Fleshgod Apocalypse commented:

“Hello everyone,

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the postponement of our upcoming tour in North America with the Veleno String Quartet and The Agonist. This has been decided upon due to current entry restrictions in the United States, following recent cases of coronavirus in Italy.

We’re absolutely devastated about the delay, but we’re already working to reschedule the tour for late Summer/early Fall (exact dates coming soon).

We know that there are so many people waiting for us in the US and Canada and we can’t wait to see you. We’ll keep you updated as shows are being rebooked, after which the show tickets and VIP tickets will be honored. So please stay tuned for further developments.

To the many of you asking how you can help support during this time, merch purchases always help and will be used to get us back up to speed and on the road. You can check out our store here: shop.fleshgodapocalypse.com

Thank you guys so much for the immense support. We’ll see you on the road, sooner than you think!”

Fleshgod Apocalypse Premiere “Monnalisa” Music Video

Fleshgod Apocalypse have premiered a new video for their song “Monnalisa.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Veleno.”

Vocalist/guitarist Francesco Paoli commented:

“‘Monnalisa‘ is truly experimental but, at the same time, one of the best songs we’ve ever written. It stood up amongst the other ‘Veleno‘ tracks right from its release, becoming an instant classic for our fans.

I believe what makes this one so special for everyone is that the idea of “poisoning”, which is at the very center of our album ‘Veleno‘ is connected to love. Even the most noble of feelings can become toxic if we suddenly lose our identity, letting our mind and soul become enslaved to someone else.

In the end, we can truly love someone only if we find a way to love ourselves first. This is one of the most meaningful messages hidden inside our album. That’s why we felt the need to emphasize it even more through this video.

When I came up with the concept behind the video, we all agreed that only someone like Giovanni Bucci (Korn, Oddko), who directed our previous video ‘Sugar‘, could have handled it the way we desired. The final result is a cinematic video that looks as good as a high-end fashion film, with incredible production values and unconventional imagery, mostly inspired by the historical heritage of Italian fashion and architecture, while still maintaining some horror aspects.

Giovanni and I have known each other for a very long time and I collaborated with his band Oddko. I’m a huge fan of all his work as a full rounded artist. He and all the creative minds of the Void ‘N Disorder team, like the extraordinarily talented Art Director Paola Rocchetti, and top-level colorist Gabe Sanchez (Post Malone, Usher, Camila Cabello) transformed a bunch of cool ideas into a mind-blowing piece of art.”

Bucci added:

“My goal with this music video was to prove that you can make something elegant and classy and still be metal as fuck.

I wanted to get away from the gritty stereotypes of metal videos and since we are all Italians, I thought that it would be interesting to juxtapose Death Metal imagery with elements from classical Italian culture, with its sophistication, elegance, and style.

Moreover, it’s always a pleasure to work with these guys and Francesco, who plays the drums on Oddko’s upcoming album and is also featured in the next, soon to be released, music videos.”

Fleshgod Apocalypse Recruit New Live Drummer Eugene Ryabchenko

Fleshgod Apocalypse have recruited Eugene Ryabchenko (Locracy, etc.) as their new live drummer. He will be taking over for David Folchitto.

Frontman Francesco Paoli said the following:

“After two years of collaboration, our live drummer and long-time friend David Folchitto called me expressing his desire to take a break from touring, to be more focused on different musical and personal projects that require more time home and a less hectic schedule.

It was a rough moment for all of us, especially on a personal side, considering all the crazy experiences we’ve shared together, but we totally get his point and we want to support him in this new chapter of his life. Obviously, as soon as his departure was discussed, we started our search for a new live drummer who could fit the role.

Well, this guy’s name is Eugene Ryabchenko. He is a long-time Fleshgod fan and also an extremely talented musician, incredibly well trained, with a solid career as a professional drummer but, most important, he is super nice and humble, which are both essential requirements to be part of this band.

From now on, he’ll be the man behind the kit for all our next shows, so please welcome him and don’t hesitate to show all your love and support!
We just finished delivering our first bunch of shows together and I feel like we truly found the final piece of the puzzle. What we have now, thanks also to Veronica and Fabio, is the best line-up we could ask for, surely the best you’ve ever seen.

So, next time we’ll be in town, make no mistake and come experience the new Fleshgod Apocalypse.”

Ryabchenko added:

“It is a huge honor and pleasure to announce that from now on I will be playing drums for Fleshgod Apocalypse.

No need to say that it is an extremely challenging task because the guys set a very high bar in terms of live performance and musical creativity. But I believe this is the right place for me to grow as a musician and a person as well.

I am looking forward to the upcoming shows in the near future and see you all on the road. Let’s make history and have a blast 🤘🏻”

David Folchitto also commented:

“I learned a very important thing doing my job, sometimes you have to make a choice because, sooner or later, you’ll have to face 2 different ways, the first one leaded by your head, the second by your heart.

It was hard, so hard, but I’m a sentimental guy and i choose the second one, i choose to follow all my musical projects! I spent 2 unbelievable years, if i come back i will do the same 1000 times! It was a great challenge to push my limits and I reached new achievements and a better level in my drumming carrer. But sometimes pushing your limits doesn’t mean the end of your journey.

This is what i understood and this is the reason why i did my choice. I want to thank Fleshgod for these 2 crazy years made my tours, flights, everything!

I want to thank all the people i’ve worked with, on and off stage. and, last but not least, i want to thank all the Fleshgod fans for their love and support in these 2 years. I gave all i had in every single show, i did it for you my friends!

Love you, see you soon

David”

Fleshgod Apocalypse To Be Joined By String Quartet On Spring North American Tour

Fleshgod Apocalypse have announced a special North American tour that will find them performing with a string quartet. The Agonist will serve as support on this run.

Fleshgod Apocalypse’s Francesco Paoli commented:

“Once again, we’re sharing the stage with a wonderful string ensemble and, this time, in some of the best live music clubs across North America. About a year ago, we had the pleasure to perform a special show in our hometown with a classical string quintet. We filmed the entire event and, a few months later, it became our first ever official live Blu-Ray, ‘An Evening In Perugia.’ Right after that, we’ve been literally flooded with requests from all over the world to make it happen abroad. Everyone in our team, including band, management and label, could only work at making it happen as soon as possible.

So here we are, bringing the full experience across North America in March/April 2019. For the first time in the history of Death Metal, a band is touring with a full string ensemble. Every night will be a night to remember, featuring the longest set we’ve ever played in the continent. No excuses to miss it then, every single detail is going to be perfect and, above all, it might be a once-in-a-lifetime event… Don’t hesitate and get your ticket before it’s too late! Let’s write a new page of Death Metal history together!”
