NASUM farewell tour

Legendary Swedish grinders NASUM will reconvene for a limited number of farewell performances in 2012. NASUM was hit hard by the passing of guitarist and co-founder Mieszko Talarczyk in the 2004 Asian tsunami, but will announce the farewell performances shortly to mark the band's 20th anniversary and close the book on the wildly influential band.

In a joint statement, the members of NASUM (Anders Jakobson: drums, Jesper Liverod: bass/vocals, Urab Skytt: guitars, Jon Lindquist: guitars/vocals) had the following to say:

"You thought NASUM was dead? We are. This is not resurrection. It's farewell, for good."

"If things were different, if Mieszko hadn't died, NASUM would have celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2012. Therefore, after long deliberation and scrutiny, we have decided that it's now or never: We will do a handful of shows around the world in 2012 - to celebrate our anniversary, say a final goodbye to the fans and Mieszko. No cheesy reunion, no new albums, no epitaph for Mieszko. We will play only a few places in a limited number of disruptive, unruly concerts. It will be a total blast, and we aim to go out hard. Just you wait.

When NASUM co-founder and lead singer Mieszko Talarczyk died in the devastating and tragic Asian tsunami of 2004, NASUM instantly ceased to exist. As the band's voice, producer and one of the main songwriters, Mieszko was a vital part of the band's bloodline. When he passed, all plans for tours and recordings were abruptly stopped. NASUM died when Mieszko died, and the rest of the band members went their separate ways."

The members continued, "In the years that passed, the feeling that everything had been left unfinished lingered with the rest of us. Suddenly seven years had passed, and we realized it was time for closure; for us, the band and for the fans. With our anniversary coming up it felt like a perfect time to end the band the way it was supposed to - exploding in a ferocious, blasting frenzy, not wither away at the mercy of tragedy. And finally we are ready, able, and totally fucking charged, so expect something over the top."

"To handle vocal duties on the upcoming shows we have asked Keijo Niinimaa, vocalist in grind favorites Rotten Sound, to join us. They were always close friends of ours, and while Keijo's plagued screams won't replace Mieszko, they will add a certain viciousness to the shows. On a few occasions, we might ask a few other close friends of the band to do some vocal sessions. Who? Wait and see! If you ever wanted to see NASUM blast shit to bits, this is your last and only chance."

Yeah, Nasum was like this totally awesome grind band who had one of their key members get killed in the 2004 Asian tsunami. I'm surprised you didn't know about it since, like, you're all into grind and shit.

- A-; oh plz, of course I know Nasum, baka-gaijin.

It's just weird that they're deciding to do this 8 years after the fact.

After one fact, not after the other. Next year is still the 20th anniversary.
