ARCH ENEMY: European Festival Appearances Canceled Due To ‘Private Family Matters’

Swedish/German extreme metallers ARCH ENEMY have released the following statement:

“It is with great disappointment that we have to cancel our shows at European festivals this summer. The reason for this being private family matters that demand our full attention, making it difficult to fulfill our commitments in that time frame. We are currently looking into the possibility of rescheduling these festival slots for next year.

“We would like to thank the festival promoters, and, of course, the fans for their understanding and continued support. We will use this downtime to finish up the work on our upcoming DVD/Blu-ray and continue with the songwriting process of the next ARCH ENEMY album. We look forward to seeing you all in 2014! Metal on!”

ARCH ENEMY‘s upcoming DVD and Blu-ray will include footage that was shot on the band’s recent tour of South America and Mexico. German production company Filmefahrer Pictures, known for its work on “2012 – The Movie” and THE VERY END‘s music video for “A Hole In The Sun”, filmed the shows, conducted interviews with the bandmember and shot backstage footage, fans and other incidentals during the tour.

ARCH ENEMY‘s ninth album, “Khaos Legions”, sold around 6,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 78.

The band last year year amicably parted ways with guitarist Christopher Amott and replaced him with American musician Nick Cordle (ARSIS).

Video: ZAKK WYLDE Talks EMG Pickups At NAMM

Premier Guitar‘s Rebecca Dirks is on location in Anaheim, California in January for the 2013 NAMM show where she visited the EMG pickups booth. In this segment, we get to hear from EMG endorsee Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) about his partnership with the company and celebrating his 25th anniversary with EMG by unveiling the Metal Works Buzzsaw, Vertigo, and Bullseye pickup covers for his signature pickup sets.

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY‘s long-talked-about “Unblackened” DVD, which was previously scheduled to be filmed in late August at The Mayan in Los Angeles, California, and was then pushed back to January, will now be shot on Wednesday, March 6 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles at 8:00 p.m. The set is expected to contain intimate versions of some of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY‘s most popular songs, as well as songs from mainman Zakk Wylde‘s solo album “Book Of Shadows” and his Southern rock band PRIDE & GLORY. The show will feature Wylde on guitar and piano, alongside the members of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, as well as a four-piece string section, pedal steel, and special guests.The concert will be broadcast live exclusively on AXS TV. A CD/DVD will be released later this year.

“This is something we haven’t done yet, and we wanted to give our fans something new,” said Wylde. “You can take a song that you’ve played thousands of times and rearrange it, and all of a sudden it’s something totally fresh. The attitude of the songs doesn’t change when we play them acoustically — the tunes are gritty regardless.”

“We’re gonna do the whole thing with a four-piece string section, a pedal steel guy, and I’m gonna have some of my musician buddies sit in on some of the songs and stuff like that,” Wylde said a few months ago. “We’re gonna have two solid weeks of rehearsal and then we’re gonna knock this thing out. [It will be an] acoustic/electric type of thing. Kinda like how the Christmas record is or like how we did ‘The Song Remains Not The Same’ where you’ve got an acoustic and then you can put a rippin’ solo something. So I’ll still have the Marshalls going with the acoustic stuff. It’d be almost kinda like if PINK FLOYD was doing an unplugged thing and they did ‘Comfortably Numb’ but Dave [Gilmour] will be sitting down but he’ll still rip that solo out. It’ll still be electric and then we’ll have the string section behind it and the whole band and it’ll be killer.”

Nikki Blakk of the San Francisco, California radio station 107.7 The Bone and AXS TV conducted an interview with Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) at this year’s NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that took place January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
