CALIBAN ANNOUNCES FIRST U.S. TOUR IN OVER TWO YEARS ALONGSIDE ALL SHALL PERISH AND BORN OF OSIRIS, POSTS NEW SONG ON MYSPACE
Metalcore stalwarts Caliban are proud and excited to announce their first full U.S. tour in over two years. The band will be scouring the country with the likes of All Shall Perish, Born of Osiris, After the Burial and Suffokate. Drummer Patrick Gruen said, “After 2 ½ years we are finally coming back to tour the states. It’s been a long time so we are more than excited to get the chance to connect with all of our friends and fans again. Be sure to come check us out!”
Additionally, the band has posted a new track titled “Caliban’s Revenge” off of their forthcoming Century Media Release Say Hello to Tragedy. Produced by Benny Richter, co-produced by guitarist Marc Goertz and mixed by Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam D, Say Hello to Tragedy marks some of Caliban’s most accomplished and mature work to date. This album impressively unites an aggressive, ferocious metal punch with emotive melodies and choruses that Caliban has come to be known for. Say Hello to Tragedy hits stores on August 25th, 2009.
Throughout the course of Say Hello to Tragedy, you’ll find equal parts vicious thrashing, blasting beats, and crushing breakdowns as well as both rough and clean vocals resulting in a record rich in contrast and diversity. Songs like the murderous opener “24 Years”, “Caliban’s Revenge” or “No One Is Safe” prove that Caliban has developed into an unrivalled modern metal beast captivating the listener with raging heaviness and catchy melodies. The concept of Say Hello to Tragedy comes from questioning why tragedies happen nowadays that could have been prevented. Guitarist Marc Goertz commented, “If people would just open their eyes and at least care a bit about their neighbours, relatives and the world in general, a lot of this adversity could be avoided. Some of our new songs are entirely fictional, whereas other ones refer to real life dramas like the Fritzl case.”
