"Absu announced their upcoming US tour prior to Christmas and are now preparing for the nationwide trek. The tour, set to kick off June 6th in San Marcos, California and wrap up June 29th in the band’s hometown of Dallas, Texas was originally noted to feature support from labelmates GLORIOR BELLI, AVERSE SEFIRA and SOTHIS. The lineup has had a recent change with Philadelphia-based RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER replacing Averse Sefira. Guitarist Matt Moore comments,"Rumplestiltskin Grinder is excited to steal all hope from the holy along with Absu, Glorior Belli and Sothis as part of the ultimate black-thrash campaign for North American annihilation."

This information is indeed correct. The reasons behind it are tedious and unimportant and do not change the outcome, but rest assured the band did everything it could to avoid this. Averse Sefira extends its gratitude to Sothis, Glorior Belli, and particularly ABSU for their support in this disappointing development. Averse Sefira will still appear in Houston and Austin dates with Sothis at the end of June. In the meantime, support this tour and the bands in their trek across North America!
