New Zealand death metal band Dawn of Azazel has been confirmed as the main support act for Deicide’s upcoming New Zealand/Australian tour.

"We are extremely honoured to be Supporting Deicide on this tour,” said frontmand Rigel Walshe. “Deicide is one of our strongest influences and one of the key bands that drew us all to the extreme end of metal when we were teenagers, so to be supporting them on this tour definitely is a tremendous accomplishment in our eyes and gives a sense of things coming full circle to be playing to their fans throughout Australasia."

Prior to supporting Deicide, the New Zealand-based band will play two shows with Skinless in November.

Dawn of Azazel’s latest album, “Sedition,” was re-released in September with a video bonus track and distributed through RED/Megaforce Records/MIC via Ibex Moon Records. “Sedition” is also now available for download online through Itunes and mailorder through CD Universe.

Since completing a Spring North American tour with Incantation and Vital Remains, Dawn of Azazel has been working on new material for the follow-up to “Sedition.”

"We have already created four new tracks and we feel confident that this material will easily surpass our previous material in aggression, speed, and originality,” said Walshe. “We aim to have another four by the end of January 2007, when we will begin the process of perfecting this material for recording late in 2007."

Dates are as follow:

11/17/06 Fri. Kings Arms, Auckland
11/19/06 Sun. Upsett Records, Hamilton (All Ages)
12/11/06 Mon. Heat Nightclub, Perth
12/12/06 Tue. HQ Nightclub, Adelaide
12/13/06 Wed. The Hi Fi Bar, Melbourne
12/14/06 Thu. The Gaelic Club, Sydney
12/15/06 Fri. The Studio, Auckland (All Ages)
12/16/06 Sat. The Civic, Christchurch (All Ages)

Can't fuckin wait! Will definitely be catching you guys at the Skinless gig too. Will you be playing any of your new songs at the upcoming gigs?

Rigel 10-06-2006 10:14 PM

We'll see how we go, only one is fully completed with lyrics etc and we want to play around with the recording we have of the new stuff and spend alot of time on getting the small details perfect with the new stuff before we try em out. If not with Deicide then defintely in January when we will tour NZ again
