Earache Records has issued the following statement from Deicide regarding the events that recently took place in Laredo, Texas:

On Friday, July 14th, 2006, Deicide were caught in a whirlwind of unfortunate events that occurred during their performance at Hustlers in Laredo, Texas. Deicide were in Texas on a short week-long tour promoting their forthcoming release, The Stench of Redemption, when they were faced with payment issues from the show's promoter, as well as a slough of technical issues that were also experienced by opening band, Ringworm.

Lead singer Glen Benton verbally expressed his displeasure with the situation to the crowd, but Benton was anxiously ready to forge on and play a full set for the audience despite prior set backs when club promoters called Laredo police. Restlessness grew amongst the crowd, resulting in several bottles being thrown around the venue causing mass confusion throughout the venue and between the police, crowd and band. Laredo police closed down the show, forcing Deicide to cut their performance short. "We wanted to finish the show," Benton genuinely states but the show came to a halt when police stormed the venue and surprisingly maced and arrested a member of the band on unclear charges. Benton states that the police used "excessive force" and many concert goers have confirmed this with unofficial observations.

Deicide plan to move forward from this incident and would like to thank all the fans that came out for their patience and dedication. An official statement from (guitarist) Ralph Santolla regarding these events will be issued shortly.

Deicide will be releasing The Stench of Redemption on August 22, followed by a fall headlining tour featuring fellow metal brothers Hurtlocker and Jungle Rot. Confirmed dates are as follows:

  • 9/20 at Huntington Music Hall (Monkey Bar) in Huntington, WV
