MORBID ANGEL will perform a special "one-off show" in Hollywood, California on May 26, 2009 at the Key Club as a warm-up to their Australian tour. This will be the band's first U.S. performance since May 2006 and will be the only show scheduled in the U.S.

Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster, the Key Club box office and for reduced-service charges.

MORBID ANGEL guitarist Trey Azagthoth recently spoke to Revolver magazine about the band's upcoming album, which will mark the Florida-based group's first release to feature vocalist/bassist David Vincent since 1995's "Domination".

"We played the new song 'Nevemore' [see video below] on the last tour and that kind of shows where our heads are at," he said. "I'd say it's like an assemblage of all sorts of stuff from the catalog and some new influences. I listen to a lot of hardcore [techno] music now — the fuckin' serious, artistic stuff, not that crap you hear at the clubs. That stuff has impact and it's really extreme. Even if there's no guitar in it or no real drums, the energy coming out of the speakers is amazing."

When asked who's going to be producing the album and what label it will be on, Azagthoth replied, "All I can say is, when it's ready, it's going to be extreme and outside the box. And, hopefully, the songs will inspire people to look deeper inside themselves for 'the stuff' and to tap that potential that we as human beings have."
