Candlelight Records in cooperation with Siege of Amida Records confirms June 10 as the US release date for Urban Cancer, the debut album from Canadaâ€™s Nefastus Dies. Featuring former Ion Dissonance vocalist Ill-Fate, the album was produced by Yannick St-Amand (Despised Icon).Â
Formed in 2002, Montreal-based Nefastus Dies completed their line-up by the addition of former Ion Dissonance vocalist Ill-Fate in 2005. His presence sparked an intense period of creativity; gigging and writing material that their already growing local fan base found to be a much more extreme approach than their earliest material. Excited about the upcoming release of Urban Cancer, the band are already busy scheduling regional performances and hope to hit the US later this fall on their first stateside tour.Â The band recently confirmed performances with Anaal Nathrakh; dates noted below.
05/17/2008Â The Kathedral – Toronto, ON
05/18/2008Â Gig Theater – Kitchener, ON
05/20/2008 CafÃ© Dekcuf -Â Ottawa, ON
05/22/2008 Plaza Theater – Montreal, QC
