We heard a little about this a few months back, but now our friends over at xSTUCK IN THE PASTx have a whole bunch of new info, straight from the band.
xSITPx -- Austrian label Burning Season Records is going to reissue Purification’s masterpiece Banging the Drums of War (previously released by Uprising Records). The new version of the cd will include 2 brand new tracks that the band is going to record in the upcoming weeks.
Former guitar player and main composer of Purification, Andrea "Monster" Campanelli, had the following to say about the deal with Burning Season Records:
"As a veteran of the scene myself (i'm 36 yo) i'm honoured and very proud to work with Pat, owner of BSR,because he always managed buisness with ethics, releasing lot of bands with a positive message and never following the "next big thing" or the new trends in hxc.
I'm looking forward to a great partnership btw Purification and Burning Seasons Records, we feel like we found the best home possible for the band right now!"
Purification’s Reunion tour is scheduled for July/August 2010 and will see the band appearing at some of the most important hxc summer festivals.
(No word on whether or not this means they'll be heading across the pond to see us, though)
More infos coming soon as well as the complete tour schedule!
Also included was some footage of the band preparing to start tracking in the studio.
