"Thrash or Die", festival in Tijuana/Mexico on December 17, 2010.
German thrashers EXUMER have been confirmed to headline the “Thrash or Die”, festival in Tijuana/Mexico on December 17, 2010.
This appearance marks the band’s first live performance in Mexico to date and EXUMER’s final live show for 2010.
The two main supports in the festival’s line-up are Californian thrashers FULED BY FIRE and BONDED BY BLOOD, who have also supported EXUMER
at last year’s Thrasho de Mayo festival.
Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: “It is a great honor for us finally play in Mexico, especially this year which is our 25th anniversary. We know that we have many Mexican fans and that was quite evident when we played at the Thrasho de Mayo festival last year in L.A. I am quiet convinced that we will have a similar reception in Tijuana and we are very much looking forward to meet our Mexican fans. We are going to take a brief break from playing after this show in order to record our new album and then return to the stage with a completely new live-set, late spring/early summer 2011.”

German thrashers EXUMER have posted one out of two video clips taken from the “Keep it True Festival 12”, DVD compilation, which was filmed in spring 2009. The band’s performance on the festival was recorded during their “5 Nights of Fire Tour”, and featured former singer/guitarist Paul Arakaki alongside main frontman Mem V. Stein. The DVD also includes a bonus interview with both singers recorded at the same show.
Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: “We posted the song “Fallen Saint”, and decided to showcase Paul. We wanted to give the fans who were not able to attend any of our last year’s shows a chance to see how we looked/sounded like with two singers. We have been missing our friend during our current tour and missed him on the first leg of the “European Ignition Tour 2010″, earlier in the spring.
However, we are currently rehearsing and writing the new EXUMER material from the up-coming album, to be released next year, between dates in order to sound as organic as possible. This was one of our greatest challenges with last year’s line-up, where 3 of us were located in the U.S. and two in Germany. It is a little easier now with me and our bassist residing in NYC and the rest of the band living in Germany. It makes it possible to get together and operate as a band, rather than a bunch guys in front of computers swapping files. The new album should satisfy most our old fans and we hope to gain some new ones alog the way”
