EXCITER guitarist and founding member, John Ricci, has issued the following official statement: "Great news to all EXCITER fans worldwide, myself and original members Dan Beehler and Allan Johnson have officially re-united! We intend performing our bone crushing neck-snapping Speed Metal in as many countries that will have us! To celebrate our long anticipated reunion our first confirmed gig will be at the Keep It True festival in Lauda-Konigshofen, Germany, on April 24, 2015. We hope to see you there! Our performance will consist of all the classics that established EXCITER as one of the pioneers of Speed and Thrash. New material and a new release will eventually follow. I also want to comment on my so-called "retirement" which was posted on various sites on February 24 by the former EXCITER members. I just want to say I never said I was going to retire. In my opinion this retirement announcement was fabricated exaggeration. What I did say is that "I need a break from music" due to some rebellious behaviour from one of the musicians in the band. So at this point all that bs is behind me and I am now focusing on delivering some new ear splitting brain rattling METAL with Dan and Allan! I want to thank all the loyal and dedicated fans and music industry individuals that contacted me during this false retirement statement and offering their support and a positive outcome to a situation that was non-repairable. Hope to see you soon with horns high and fists in the air!"

SARCÓFAGO's second album "Rotting" will be re-released on vinyl on May 27, 2014 through Greyhaze Records. It has been remastered and will be housed in a deluxe gatefold jacket, which will feature the original artwork, including a full-color gatefold insert. It will be available in two vinyl colors: black and limited green with black smoke. A CD / DVD digipack edition of the release is currently in the works as well. The release date will be announced soon. SARCÓFAGO'S drummer during the "Rotting" sessions, Manu (Joker), had this to say about his time with the band during that era: "Rotting" is one hell of an album. Even though I recognize the importance of "INRI", "Rotting" is still my favorite SARCÓFAGO album. It's better built than the previous album, but it still maintains that elemental rawness. The "Rotting" era was a great time. Wagner did an outstanding job. We were an interesting trio, and when (Fabio) Jhasko joined the band, our firepower became even greater! Excellent memories!"
