UK demoniacs AKERCOCKE have completed their controversial headline tour, and
have released their latest opus 'Antichrist' this week.

Despite problems in Northern Ireland in the wake of their appearance on the
'Nolan Live' show, the band completed all dates and enthralled fans by
playing new material from the album in advance of release.

Frontman Jason Mendonca reflects on the tour and the controversy:

"A huge thank you to all the brothers and sisters who came out and supported
the UK tour. The excursion with comrades Cephalic Carnage, Ted Maul and
Burning Skies was  a resounding success. It was an honour to play to so many
enthusiastic fans - thank you all. The Dublin and Belfast shows were superb,
despite the threat of adversity from certain establishments."

'Antichirst' was released on Monday, including a limited edition version
with 2 bonus songs in a deluxe super jewel case.

Mendonca continues:

"Thank you to all the true Akercocke fans who went out and bought Antichrist
this week instead of downloading illegal poor quality MP3's. It's your
support that enables us to continue the project and make further albums.
Until next time.........."

The band are lining up more live performances with details to be revealed
shortly. Akercocke's new video for the track 'Axiom' will also be available
to view imminently.
