Germany, Here we come!
After about 8 Years of playing shows in the US, Deadstar Assembly finally gets ready to embark on their next level of touring. We’re currently gearing up for the second leg of the Coat of Arms tour which will begin at Germany’s Summer Breeze Open Air Festival. You can find out more information about the tour on the Summer Breeze website. Some of the bands we will be performing with at this festival include: Sepultura, Napalm Death, GWAR, Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder, Agnostic Front, Behemoth, Dark Funeral, Dying Fetus, Gorgoroth, Ill Nino, Macabre, My Dying Bride, Sick of it All, Suffocation, The 69 Eyes, and many more! You can check out the full list on their Bands Page.
We got word that this 3-day festival is already sold out. There will be about 90 Bands and 30,000 people for each day of the festival! I’m mostly excited about the fact that I can finally leave the country again and especially for a show this big. For those of you who didn’t know, my Brazilian passport had expired and it was a bit of a bitch for me to get it renewed. I’m not an American Citizen, just a legal resident, and it was a lot harder than it should have been for me to renew the passport. Anyone who’s had to deal with the debacle will tell you, dealing with consulates are less than appealing. Their web sites are missing a ton of important information and just trying to find out what I needed to do was bad enough, let alone trying to call them. They’re the most unhelpful people you’ll ever deal with. You call them, and they tell you to email the site for more information, then they reply to the email and tell you to call them. It’s like a never ending FOR loop in a poorly written piece of software.
Regardless, after all of that was taken care of, I got more great news that we’re also going back out west for this second leg of the tour. We’ll be performing in states such as Colorado, Utah, Washington, Nevada, and one of my favorites, California. We get to perform at The Whisky A Go-Go in West Hollywood, CA for the second time and I can’t wait! This part of the tour will be with The Dreaming. The Dreaming includes Christopher Hall (Singer of Stabbing Westward) and Carlton Bost (Guitarist of Deadsy).
I’m looking forward to the upcoming tour and hope everything works out the way it’s supposed to.
