MEXICO - VENOM UPDATE
We are happy to announce that Venom will now be appearing live at the
Tecate Metal Fest in Monterrey Mexico on 6 October 2018.
The management & promoters have been working around the clock to find
a way to address the issues that unexpectedly arose, which put the concert
at risk, although a solution has finally been found to everyone's satisfaction.
We would like to apologies for any inconvenience, & hope the fans who were
planning to travel to the event can still make their journey, and the fans who
already bought tickets enjoy a great show.
MEXICO - VENOM CANCEL
It is with deep regret that today we have to announce that Venom will not be
appearing at the Tecate Metal Fest in Monterrey Mexico, due to a breach of
contract by the promoter. The members of Venom & their crew are very
unhappy about this situation, as a lot of work & expense has went into
preparing for this show & they are deeply disappointed especially for
the Legions who were all looking forward to seeing Venom live.
The band and management want the fans to know that this matter
has been completely out of their control.
NEW STORMING STUDIO ALBUM RELEASE
The new Venom album is set for release at the end of 2018. Entitled Storm The Gates,
the new album will be released in December 2018 by Spinefarm Records/UMG in CD
format, with other formats of Vinyl and Cassette coming out in the new year.
Cronos quoted: "Get ready for another killer album, packed full of awesome riffs &
screaming mayhem. We´ve been hard at work for over two years to make sure this
new album release raises the bar, to deliver a demonic mix of old & new. I´m
hoping to talk the label into a xmas day release date, yo fucking ho, hell yeah.
Further release information coming soon

THE JACKAL PLAYS DANTE
Dante is still undergoing treatment for his injury from May, and with a recent stay in hospital following his operation, the band were nearly forced to cancel the rest of their upcoming shows for 2018. Fortunately Dante's tech, The Jackal, offered to save the shows for the Legions, so Venom could headline the Gefle Metal Festival in Sweden on Friday 13th July. The show was fantastic and the Legions gavve him a warm welcome. The doctors have not given an exact date to when Dante can begin playing again, so The Jackal will be standing in for the upcoming shows.
