After having hit the road in Germany and Austria, fucking awesome locations, crazy and breathtaking audiences and simply the best possible company we could have with all the bands and the crew we toured with, OVER YOUR THRESHOLD is back home at last.
However, the end of this memorable tour brings some good and some less good results for as. As for the bad one: After the Zurich show, we also have to cancel our gigs in Finland this April. Independently of each other, our new drummer and bassist had to face an unpredictable incidence in their private lives, which makes it impossible for them to attend the shows. We feel deeply sorry about this, but it´s not the end of the road. Sooner or later, Finland will have to deal with us!
As for the good result: Yes, you´ve seen right! New Drummer! Originally introduced as our tour drummer filling in for Julian, we are excited to inform you that Benedikt Merl has become a permanent member of OVER YOUR THRESHOLD and the official drummer. Working with him went fluently in every way right from the beginning, and last but not least he proved himself as a reliable and skilled musician perfectly fitting for us. We parted ways with Julian on amicable terms and wish him all the best for his future and forthcoming music career.
Feeling reinvigorated, we now will put our focus on writing and composing tracks for the next album. A new line-up means new influences in the band and the songs, and we hope to give you a foretaste of what is to come as soon as possible.
We feel sorry to inform you that our drummer and bandmate Julian Matejka will not be able to play our upcoming tour with OBSCURA. This misfortune is caused by a hand injury of Julian, which takes some time to heal up. Nevertheless, we got good news for you! With Beni Merl (see picture below) OVER YOUR THRESHOLD has found a skilled session drummer who will fill in for Julian and hit the road with us this March!
Thanks to that, our participation in the “A DECADE OF PROGRESSIVE DEATH METAL” tour is not endangered and we all are looking forward to see you there!
