Terror is currently touring the world in support of latest release, “Keepers Of The Faith,” hitting North America this month with Bane, Naysayer, and Rotting Out before heading over to Europe, then Ireland and the UK this fall– but the group’s impending stop in the Czech Republic has now been cancelled. In regards to this cancellation, Terrror comments:

“Terror is going to cancel their show in the Czech Republic this month. We feel obligated to stand up for Randy Blythe. This situation seems to be taken too lightly. Randy comes from punk and hardcore roots, just like Terror. He still supports underground music and has always supported Terror — even singing on stage alongside us when we play Richmond. This hits really close to home for us having members of the band and our crew from the hometown of Lamb of God.

“We love our Czech fans very much and have amazing shows there, but we need to ‘stick tight’ to our friend Randy, which is why we have chosen to cancel the show. As a band that could easily be in this same position at any given show, we don’t think we can play there and act like this is OK – it isn’t.

“This is bigger than a hashtag or a clever t-shirt– we as a community need to take action and speak up. Free Randy Blythe.”

The band’s upcoming shows are:

8/1–Triple Rock–Minneapolis, MN **with BANE, NAYSAYER, ROTTING OUT**

Celebrating three decades of life in the political and musical hinterlands, Propagandhi will release sixth studio album, “Failed States,” on September 4th. The album’s first single “Failed States” debuts today and can be heard now in the player below. Additionally, Propagandhi will kick off a North American tour in September with support from Comback Kid. Dates are listed below.

“Our goal is always to create a no-holds-barred, forward-thinking, tip-of-the-hat to the giants — Voivod, Rush, NoMeansNo, SNFU, Sacrifice, Razor, Guilt Parade – that have gone before us,” says vocalist and guitarist, Jesus H. Chris. “We are in their debt and take the mission seriously. Even when we’re singing about liking Kurt Russell as Captain Ron, we take the mission seriously. Failed States is our most formidable – and to me personally, our most surprising — attempt at conjuring the numinous from the quotidian. Yes, I had to look those words up.”

The track listing is:

1. Note to Self – 5:56
2. Failed States – 1:54
3. Devil’s Creek – 2:32
