Purification is reforming and will release the re-issue of their latest record "Banging the drums of war" (originally out on Uprising Records) this summer on HUP supporting the European dates the band will play. There has been a quite important change in the line-up for this iconic Vegan Straight Edge band from Italy, and the upcoming CD will feature 2 bonus tracks featuring the new singer.
Here's what the band stated about the comeback:
"Purification always meant militant vegan straight edge. And in this lack of bands carrying the ideology nowadays we found the main reason to bring Purification back to life. As the spirit of the message always overwhelms the mere members of the band, we still believe that it makes sense to play and tour again even if with a major change in the line-up.
A new era in Purification history has begun carrying the same passionate spirit that made the band appreciated worldwide, that gave us wonderful memories and we are sure will give us wonderful times again.
While some people would think we are doing a mistake, or that we are doing it for the money (what money by the way), or that hate us for some reason...well, we hope you change your mind.
We are deeply connected to this reality and we still have the power to change it for the better. We believe that spreading the Vegan Edge message through the band is a powerful weapon that we have to use.
We particularly believe a new horizon is to be seen and hopefully we will accomplish something more with the comeback of Purification."
A new song will be posted monday 31st on band's Myspace.
