bass player Markus Åkebo has left the Swedish death/black metal band ZONARIA.
Emil Nyström states about the departure: "We've had some great tours the last couple of years with Markus and we're going to miss him bad. But sometimes people need to move on and Markus needed a change in life. We wish him all the best for his future ventures.
The departure will not affect our upcoming plans and tours. We've got a good friend of ours stepping in on our upcoming European tour with Nile, Meleches, Dew-Scented and Darkrise."
ZONARIAS's tour with NILE, MELECHESH, DEW-SCENTED and DARKRISE, dubbed "Those Whom The Gods Detest - European Tour 2011", is scheduled to kick off on January 20 at Mega Club in Katowice, Poland. A list of the dates can be found on the bands myspace. http://www.myspace.com/zonaria
Zonaria have been confirmed as headlining act for the swedish indoor festival Julslakten. We will be playing alongside Inevitable End, October Tide and Death Maze to mention a few. If you are close to Söderhamn 11th of December be sure to come check the festival out!
Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updates lately but here comes. The third and yet untitled Zonaria album has been finished recorded after a short break with touring and such. We are currently working on release details such as dates. But this is nothing I can confirm or tell you more about today.
On other great news and the real reason I’m writing today is because we’ve been confirmed as support for the might American extreme metal band Nile. The tour will run through all of Europe and alongside Nile we’ll play with Meleches, Dew-Scented and Darkrise. So it’s going to be a hell of an evening with five great bands.
The tour spans from 20-january to 16-february. Hope to see you all front row headbanging.
