South American Dates CANCELED!
UPDATED: JUNE 29th 2015
"W.A.S.P. are sorry to announce today that we have been forced to cancel our planned performances in South America due to lack of communication and payments by the shows promoter in Brazil, which prohibit us from getting our necessary visas for the performances.
Due to the visa problems, we will not be able to play Colombia either.
We have done everything possible to play for our fans in Brazil, Argentina and Colombia but unfortunately we now cannot.
We will again try in the near future when our record titled Golgotha is released."
"Sentimos mucho anunciar que la banda se ve forzada a cancelar sus conciertos en Sudamerica, debido a la falta de comunicacion y falta de ingresos financieros de parte del promotor/ organizador Brasileño, lo cual ha impedido que la banda obtenga las visas necesarias para proceder con sus actuaciones.
A causa del mismo problema con dichas visas, nos es igualmente imposible realizar nuestra planeada actuación en Colombia
Por nuestra, parte hemos hecho todo lo possible para proceder adelante con nuestros conciertos en Brasil, Argentina y Colombia, pero desafortunadamente nos es imposible en esta occasión. Lo volveremos a intentar lo mas pronto possible, una vez que nuestro Nuevo disco llamado Golgotha haya salido a la venta."
COMING OCTOBER 2015!
Almost six years have passed since the world saw a new studio album from Metal Icons W.A.S.P. That is about to change as W.A.S.P. has signed a new worldwide record deal with Austria’s Napalm Records. W.A.S.P. will release their 15th studio album titled Golgotha this August.
"W.A.S.P. are excited to announce they have signed an exclusive recording contract with Napalm Records. We chose Napalm for their personal belief and professional commitment to our career. We're looking forward to years of great success together starting with the release of our upcoming album Golgotha", states W.A.S.P. front man Blackie Lawless.
“It is a true honor to announce this signing today, a dream has come true. With their impressive career and ability to create musical masterpieces W.A.S.P have always been one of the most influential Metal bands out there since the beginning of their career. We are thrilled about the upcoming album Golgotha which will be released this summer!”
Vice President of Napalm Records Thomas Caser
W.A.S.P. came out of the Los Angeles Metal scene in 1982 gaining notoriety for their shock rock antics. With a career spanning over 3 decades, 17 world tours, and now their 15th studio album, they are a metal band that has evolved in maturity without having lost their signature sound, unlike many of their peers from their origins. Golgotha will continue down the path that 2007's Dominator and 2009's Babylon started on, both in production style and theme. Six years in the making, Golgotha will undoubtedly lead the listeners on the emotionally epic undertaking that W.A.S.P. has become acclaimed for!
