Plague Years Drop Off Tour With Creeping Death, 200 Stab Wounds, Etc. After Parting Ways With Drummer Mike Jurysta

Drummer Mike Jurysta has exited Plague Years. As a result, the band will be unable to make their previously scheduled tour. The group issued the following statement:

“Unfortunately we have to drop off the tour with Creeping Death, 200 Stab Wounds, SpiritWorld, and Tribal Gaze. Mike has decided to leave the band, and with that, it left us with not enough time to find a replacement. We apologize to everyone who was looking forward to seeing us. Trust that we are crushed we can’t be out there playing these new songs and hanging out. Fortunately we have found a new drummer to replace Mike, so expect us playing shows again very soon. Announcement about that coming soon. Again, very sorry we can’t make it to the shows. We hope that everyone can forgive us. We promise to come back faster and heavier then ever before.”

Plague Years Premiere “Paradox Of Death” Video

Plague Years have premiered a new video for their song “Paradox Of Death.“ This track is from the band’s new album “Circle Of Darkness,” which was released today (September 18). Guitarist Eric Lauder commented:

“‘Paradox Of Death‘ is a mid-tempo stomper. This is one of my favorite tracks and highlights Mike [Jurysta]’s incredible drumming. The song is a story about killing a snitch after he’s betrayed his people. Loyalty should never be broken. No mercy for rats. Never fold, never bend.”

Plague Years Premiere New Song “Incantation”

Plague Years have premiered a new song titled “Incantation.“ This track is from the band’s new album “Circle Of Darkness,” which will be released on September 18. Guitarist Eric Lauder commented:

“This song is about resurrecting the dead that were condemned by god. Corpses become masters of chaos, rising to become a part of hell’s army to destroy their land and all things divine. This is one of the hardest and most aggressive songs on the record, relentless with its speed in the beginning and crushing heaviness at the end.”
