Florida’s MONSTROSITY will embark on a short run of dates this July. The "Apocalyptic Devastation 2008" dates will be based around the band’s appearance at the Central Illinois Metalfest. Support acts will be announced shortly. This will be a headline run for the band where they will showcase songs from their latest critically acclaimed release "Spiritual Apocalypse". MONSTROSITY bassist Mike Poggione will not be appearing at these shows. In his place, the band will welcome back former member and one time DEATH bassist Kelly Conlon. Kelly is no stranger to the band having played bass on several MONSTROSITY albums ("Millennium" – 1996 and "In Dark Purity" – 1999) as well as numerous tours of the US and Europe. Says Drummer Lee Harrison: "It will be great to be able to be able to get back on the road and play longer sets. This time we will be able to play more songs from the older albums we didn’t have time for on the last run. We’re perfecting our show as we go and just trying to make it better. I recently got my new Sonor drumkit from Germany and the other guys just got brand new gear so the band is sounding the best it ever has. We’re using in ear monitors now as well, so we have the same mix every night and that helps us perform better. This run is a little shorter due to some of the guys work schedules so we hope to do another run in the fall hitting some of the places we missed. Come out to the shows and support the real underground!!" The band released "Spiritual Apocalypse" in 2007 on Metal Blade Records in Europe and is available now through the bands website at (www.monstrosity.us) in the United States.
