PESSIMIST have recently signed a new management deal with NY’s Alchemusic, who already managed Gorguts, Withered Earth and more. Here’s an official press statement that the band released about their "Slaughtering" US tour: "Pessimist would like to thank all who came out to the shows!! After battling with van problems 3 days into the tour, we were able to get back on the road to complete the East Coast dates with REFLUX, and we’d like to give a big hails to our new friends and fans in NJ, NY, SC and FL!! Unfortunately the next day bassist / vox Reaper having to leave the tour, and the band suffering from financial setbacks, the decision was made to postpone the rest of the tour. Dates in Las Vegas, TX and CA will all be re-scheduled at a later date!! The band apologizes to the promoters and especially the fans we missed! Good news is that the Pessimist van now runs great (thanks Mad Dog!!), we’ve made tons of new friends, contacts and working with a new agent… look for more complete US Tour dates this Winter / Spring ’03!" www.pessimist.com
