Metal Blades Records artist Job For A Cowboy will be headlining the Bonecrusher Fest 2013 tour, which will go throughout Europe in March. Support will come from Beneath The Massacre, War From A Harlots Mouth, Gorod, As They Burn, and Make Them Suffer. The full tour schedule can be seen below.
The band commented, “We are all excited to announce that we will be heading back over to Europe this spring to participate in the Bonecrusher Festival. After some long and hard contemplation (uhh huh huh huh), we decided it would be best to get back over to the lands of beer and honey to throw down with our friends in Beneath the Massacre and cruise around with some other cool bands and try and have a good time. It will be our first time headlining a proper tour overseas in just about 2 years, and we are ready to play some tunes, drink some brews and crush some snacks. Come get your bone crushed with a bunch of bearded dudes on high protein diets playing music way too fast!”

Canadian metal act Despised Icon have decided to throw in the towel and disband. However, instead of canceling their world tour plans, they decided to stick it out, giving fans a last opportunity to see them perform. Here are some words from Alex Erian:
“It’’s been a while already since we made THE announcement and I know some of you are probably saying ‘WTF, these guys still aren’t done yet?!’ Well, instead of canceling the tours we had in the works at the time, we figured it’’d be a good opportunity to play in our favourite cities, tour in a few countries we had never visited before and rock out with you guys for the last time.
“After touring in 24 countries in the last 6 months, we’’re finally back home and getting ready to play our last Quebec and Ontario shows next week. This final world tour was simply amazing and since this is the last time we check-in with you guys, I just want to sincerely thank you all once again for all your help and support. We’’ve had some good fucking times together!
“For those who were planning on coming to our final Montreal shows, we have a few surprises for you. The original Despised Icon line-up (2002-2006) will make its appearance and play a few songs from the first 2 albums! We’re also happy to announce that our brothers in Ion Dissonance and Beneath The Massacre will be supporting their new records for the first time at home and ABACABB will also be playing one of their last shows ever with us. Our homies in The Acacia Strain, Oceano and Mychildren Mybride will also be part of the event. It’s gonna be epic. Bandeapart.ca will film and host the entire last set on their website for free so make sure you demonstrate how we do things in MTL! See you soon!”
