I am a bit short on time… we are on our way to Tulsa Oklahoma. The US Tour is underway. But I have a few very important announcements… So, I shall cut to the chase.
First- Dragoncon went really well. The show was so much fun, and the crowd was absolutely amazing. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off the US Tour. We want to say thank you to the “Cruxshadows fairies” (our street team) and the staff of Dragoncon for all their help. We had a record attendance; unfortunately the fire marshall was not as enthusiastic about the number of people who showed up… and a lot of people were turned away. Needless to say the energy of the crowd was still awesome. And I was really proud of the band.
Second- Our US Tour is now underway. We will be playing 50+ shows across the United States from September through December… yes, a very long tour. In order to promote the event, we created a short video that can be downloaded as a podcast or watched via youtube. The footage features CXS in its newest lineup, live from both the Blackfield Festival in Europe and Dragoncon in the United States. The Immortal Tour will feature Ayria and I:scintilla (Both from Alfa Matrix Records). Please feel free to help us to promote the tour by spreading this video everywhere. Cryoflesh.com, vampirefreaks.com, and projekt.com are all sponsors of the American leg of the tour. Please feel free to let them know that you appreciate their support of Cruxshadows.

Thirdly… well, I saved the best announcement for last… To kick off our US Tour, our new single Immortal has climbed up the Charts entering Billboard at position number two in the Hot Dance Singles Sales chart- Just behind MIA and just ahead of Madonna. We also debuted at #6 on the Hot Singles Sales Chart, also on Billboard. This marks our third consecutive single that debuted in the top 10 in sales nationally. I am really proud of all the hard work that the band did to make this happen, and grateful for the support of our fans.
Well we need to get going… I hope to see you all at some point on our tour. The latest dates can be found on pollstar.com. Hope to see you all at shows very soon.
Live Love Be Believe
