NAPALM DEATH vocalist "Mark "Barney" Greenway checked in during the band's current North American tour together with label-mates VOIVOD to comment about the feedback towards the album and to give a quick road-report as well as an outlook on next touring targets:
"We are pinching ourselves yet again, especially considering the ongoing noise quotient of our output. Thank you and thank you. From the other side of the pond, our ND / Voivod / Exhumed / Iron Reagan / Black Crown Initiate tour is making some nice waves. There's something for everybody in this buffet of many extreme flavours, and people are chewing it up. There are old friends, very drunk friends and everybody is indeed happy. Back to Europe, we're giving you all a little time away (though we miss you dearly), but in the meantime we have a tasty little trip planned with Carcass in Australia and New Zealand, with maybe some extra Asia dates sandwiching the whole thing. I am looking forward to seeing Shane dressed as an Orc when he finally lives his dream of taking in the Hobbit set down New Zealand way - not to be missed at any costs. All the best for now".
