Daath Explains Ozzfest/Show Cancellations
July 30, 2007
Atlanta death thrashers Daath have issued the following update:

"I'm sitting in a hotel room in Denver right now. I should be in Oklahoma City tonight, and Kansas City tomorrow, but I'm not. I'm in Denver and I'm fucking pissed about it. I'm not the only one that's pissed about it.

"We've been getting lots of mail from pissed off Daath fans that either wanted to see us at the Phoenix Ozzfest last week, or in Oklahoma City tonight. I'm going to explain what happened.

"At the start of the tour a company which will remain nameless rented us a converted airport shuttle bus. On paper it sounded perfect for us but in reality it was an uninhabitable, undriveable piece of shit. The shuttle bus had no [air conditioning] at all that was working or could be fixed without spending at least a day on it. In some cities it was hotter in there than outside. The thing also barely ran. On the first full day we had to replace the alternator at our own cost. Any time you turned the thing on it bounced around like a washing machine, The emergency exit wouldn't open, there was no fire extinguisher, it was improperly wired on the inside so that none of the appliances worked reliably, the hookup for the trailer lights didn't work and you couldn't read the gauges at night because the internal panel wasn't well lit enough among other things. We were roughing it out with that thing but finally last week, right outside the House of Blues in Hollywood, the transmission on it fell out. That's why we missed the Phoenix Ozzfest. We didn't have a way to get there. The company we rented it from did nothing to help us out. We were going to have to pay for it out of our own pocket and miss more shows even. We decided to ditch it and rented an RV. We set a date and time for a pickup from Denver and when that date arrived the RV didn't. In fact, there's no [estimated time of arrival] on the RV. Supposedly it's in San Fransisco. We currently have no confirmed way out of Denver. We are going to figure something out soon. If you're wondering why we've been missing shows then wonder no more.

"Other than that, Ozzfest has remained as badass as how it began. All the bands we're touring with are cool motherfuckers, we drink a lot of Jager, and on top of all that I get to watch Behemoth every day."

Daath Remix By Danny Lohner Due In July
June 6, 2007
Atlanta-based extreme metal band Daath will release an exclusive remix of "Dead on the Dance Floor", a track from their debut Roadrunner release, 'The Hinderers', via digital EP this summer. Due in July, the track was remixed by Danny Lohner, former of Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle. Daath guitarist and co-founder Eyal Levi states, "At some point in our lives each member of Daath has done their time with Nine Inch Nails' music. They are a huge part of our musical upbringing and collaborating with one of their main minds is an honor that we are very excited about." Describing its sound as "versatile," Daath strays away from a traditional approach to death metal weaving deep pockets of groove with electronic nuances, making a remix by Danny Lohner a natural progression for the band.

Having just completed a sold-out U.K. tour alongside metal juggernauts Unearth, Job For A Cowboy, and Despised Icon, Daath will hit the road on June 2 and will tour through August 30, showcasing its bombastic live show throughout North America. The band's touring journey will begin as part of the Summer Slaughter Tour, featuring a bounty of respected extreme metal acts such as Necrophagist, Decapitated, Cephalic Carnage and Cattle Decapitation. Following Summer Slaughter they will play a string of select dates with Dying Fetus, Psyopus, and Covenance, until launching into this year's Ozzfest. Daath will dominate the second stage with fellow underground acts such as Hatebreed, Nile, 3 Inches Of Blood and Chthonic and will be playing select "off" Ozzfest dates with Nile. "This is a breakthrough time for extreme music," Levi says. "Ozzfest has begun to pick up on the value of underground, truly extreme music. For us it's not only a great honor, but also a huge opportunity to see how much we can help push the genre."
