Heavy metal titans METAL CHURCH will be touring Europe extensively next month. They will be presenting their latest studio album »XI«, which hit the charts worldwide (Switzerland #30, Germany #34, Austria #51, USA #57 among others). After MESHIAAK had to cancel their appearance due to parting ways with their drummer Jon Dette, the band have revealed Swiss thrashers COMANIAC as a replacement today. COMANIAC stated: "Wow, we are truly overwhelmed to join the amazing METAL CHURCH on their European run in June. Besides being on tour with one of our favourite bands it's also a huge honour to play in some legendary venues where we also attended the concerts of our favourite bands as fans. Those are exactly the moments you're dreaming about when you start a band. We're looking forward to seeing many new faces and we promise to kick your ass!" METAL CHURCH w/ COMANIAC 09.06.
