Checking in after shows with Bolt Thrower; Changes in touring schedule; Adding more summer festivals in Europe; New merchandise designs available now!
DEW-SCENTED are back home again after some cool shows in these last weekends, so let us give you a small re-cap…
Playing with Bolt Thrower is totally awesome! Great band, great crew, great crowds! We are enjoying every minute of it and look forward to seeing them again this coming Sunday in Luxembourg for a final gig! Truly an outstanding, inspiring band on all levels and a pleasure to finally be able to share stages with them! Thanks for having us!!!
Additionally, it was great to team up with Rotting Christ and Asphyx as well! The Neurotic Deathfest (sold out!) was an awesome day with a killer line-up and tons of buddies from other bands hanging around having a good time! It was cool to see our show turning out to be pretty intense and well attended even though we were worried not to be „brutal death“ enough at first. And it was of course great to return to France (Paris and Lyon) and see so many familar faces there too! We will come back soon…
Oh yeah, and along the way we also supported Heathen (together with our friends in Contradiction) at Essen’s great Turock venue! The place was packed with Thrashers, old and young, making it an amazing set for everyone! Would have been cool to play some more shows with Heathen…well, maybe next time!?
In other live-news, we regretfully have to announce that Atheist changed plans in their summer schedule and were forced to pull their whole European visit. Therefor we will unfortunately no longer be playing the previously announced June shows in London (UK), Cologne (D) and Groningen (NL). Too bad! Additionally, the local promoter of the show with Destinity in Colmar (France) on May 14th has also decided to cancel the gig. Sucks ;-(
Please however take notice that DEW-SCENTED are still ON to play Hellfest in France on Saturday, June 19th as a one-off (we play as early as 10:30 AM opening the main stages!), so hope to see some of you there!!! We will provide a heavy awakening, that’s for sure!
In better news, we have recently added some really cool new festival dates to our summer schedule: Caos Emergente in Portugal on July 16th and then the German festivals Bang Your Head!!! on July 17th, Baden In Blut on July 31st (therefor we flipped the day of Eisenwahn Festival to Friday July 30th now!) and the Turock Open Air (free show!) on September 10th.

Seeing that the release dates of our new album „Invocation“ are finally coming closer, we have also started playing some more new songs in our live set. Next to „Arise From Decay“, we have now also added „Condemnation“ and „Have No Mercy On Us“…and that’s working out just great!
We have some new merchandise designs in now as well and you can either grab it from us at shows or contact us online if you would like to order something! We made an album full-colour „Invocation“ cover-artwork design and a more simple one-coloured one called „Armies Of Nemesis“ (Available either as white print on black or otherwise black print on white…but also in shirt colours dark grey, olive, sand-brown, red and light grey!). The new designs can be seen here:
Oh and before we forget to mention it: We will be launching yet
another new song off „Invocation“ on www.myspace.com/dewscented by the coming weekend, so please look out!
The advance media reactions to „Invocation“ are extremely positive and encouraging so that we really can’t for you to hear the new songs…
Keep it heavy,
