After a successful run of dates in Australia and New Zealand together with Carcass, British Grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH continue to promote their 15th studio album, Apex Predator – Easy Meat with festival appearances this coming weekend in North America (Maryland Death Fest and Fort Worth Metal Festival) as well as dates in Europe and Russia this summer.
NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury checked in briefly with greetings while on travels as follows: “We had an awesome time down in Australia & New Zealand with our old friends Carcass! A lot of history between us as everyone probably knows and the crowds were very appreciative with most of the shows sold out. And what a great line up, also with Extortion opening…a truly awesome band from Australia. All in all a killer tour and I almost got Bill Steer up onstage for a few of the old songs, but we never quite managed it with all of the crazy traveling and early flights. But one day soon though, I tell you…Cheers!“
Upon release in January, Apex Predator – Easy Meat managed to enter the sales charts in several countries across the world with the following highest positions: Germany: #36, Switzerland: #64, France: #69, Greece: #60, Belgium (Flemish): #103, Belgium (Wallonia): #111, UK: #120, UK Rock Chart: #15, US Top 200: #113,US New Artist Top 50: #2.
