WITHERING SURFACE played five succesful gigs in Germany with support bands Iniquity and My Cold Embrace. You can read an indepth tour report and check out some cool photos on the band’s website www.witheringsurface.dk. If you want them to email the tour report directly to you (either in Danish or English), let them know. Due to the fact that their new drummer, Lukas Meier, got ill after the German tour (with a kidney stone), WITHERING SURFACE had to cancel their two Swedish gigs at Belsepub (Gothenburg) on the 2nd of May and on the 3rd of May at the Sparbankshalle in Sunne. On Monday the 5th of May the new MCD "Ichor" was released in a limited edition of 1000 copies in a deluxe digipak. The tracklist includes five songs: ‘Superior Seed’ , ‘The White Path’ (both taken from the "Walking On Phantom Ice" recording session), ‘Forever Fragile’ (recorded as a bonus track for the Japanese version of "The Nude Ballet"), ‘Fading Mask’ (previously only released on the limited edition 7"ep "Forever Fragile" in 200 copies) and ‘WhoreBride’ (Live recording from the Roskilde Festival). WITHERING SURFACE are working on setting up a tour for Scandinavia, Germany and the Benelux in the Autumn. Everybody interested in booking the band should get in touch. They will furthermore be busy recording demo / pre-recordings in May and June for their upcoming album, due to be recorded in the Berno Studio (Malmö, Sweden) in July and August.
