“We are currently preparing the tour and I can tell: It`s gonna be brutal! Not only do we offer the strongest Extreme Metal package of 2012 together with NILE, MORBID ANGEL and FUELED BY FIRE – we’ll also present our new 3D stage show for the first time in Europe!

In other news, Kreator have just announced that they will release another 7″ single off the most recent, chart-breaking album “Phantom Antichrist”. “Civilization Collapse” will be released on 7″ vinyl (retail version: black – cover1 // Nuclear Blast Mailorder only: red, yellow, white – cover2) and as digital download on November 9, 2012 and will contain the super rare non-album track, “Wolfchild”, which was released earlier this year on the JOHN SINCLAIR tribute sampler, “Dark Symphonies”. The band also made a video clip for “Civilization Collapse” which is mainly about the riots that took place in Greece most recently.

While researching about said riots the KREATOR art direction team became aware of Marios Lolos, president of the Greek union of journalistic photographers. In the past Greek photographers have become victims to police brutality quite often, and Marios himself barely got out alive out of one these extreme and undemocratical attacks. When KREATOR showed Marios both song and lyrics, he immediately agreed participate by offering parts of his huge photographic archives.

Keep your eyes and ears open for the “Civilization Collapse” video.
