 European Mini-Tour About to Launch
Assemblage 23 is getting ready to start our mini-tour of Europe.  In addition to being your first chance to hear the new songs live, this will also be our first tour with new drummer Mike Jenney.  Live dates can be found to the right.  We are in the middle of booking our US tour for the October/November timeframe and will list those dates when everything is finalized.  Hope to see lots of you out on the road!

Assemblage 23 Online Store During the Tour
Just a note to let everyone know that the Assemblage 23 Online Store will still be accepting orders during our 2 weeks in Europe, but any orders placed during this time will not ship until I return on July 22nd.

Fantastic  Response for "Bruise"
Thanks are in order to all you wonderful A23 fans.  I have been completely overwhelmed by the wonderful response "Bruise" has been getting so far.  In addition to hitting the top ten on both Amazon and iTune's Electronic Sales Charts, it hit #1 on both the Deutsche Alternative Charts and European Alternative Charts.  We even cracked the German Media Control Charts for the first time ever!  Both Dark Belarus and Razgrom have also both declared "Bruise" their Album of the Month.  And if that wasn't enough, the reviews have been better than I ever could've expected.  So thank you very, very much!

Tom Shear Completes Mix-Downs and Remix for Caustic
Yours truly has finished mixing down two tracks for the next Caustic album, as well as completing a remix of one of the songs.  Caustic's Matt Fanale has really upped his game on this new material.  I think his fans are going to be really impressed.

Assemblage 23 Completes Remix for Sagitario

Assemblage 23 Inks Merch Deal for Mexican Market
I recently signed a licensing deal with Mexico's Blackline Licensing to produce exclusive t-shirts for Mexico and North America.  These shirts will be completely different designs from the one available through the Assemblage 23 Online Store.  I'll post an update once the shirts are available.
