God Dethroned to return in 2015
Official press release: God Dethroned will return in 2015! They performed their final shows as a band in 2011 at the Eindhoven Metal Meeting, and in early 2012 on the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise. In 2015, they are plotting to return to the stage. The band will begin where they left off, and will be performing as part of 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise in January 2015! God Dethroned front man, Henri Sattler, explains in the quote below.
"In early 2011, I was facing two options: one was to announce a break, and the other option was to quit the band. I definitely needed time away from it all, and having a break wasn't reassuring enough to know if I would be able to recharge the batteries for another go. "Oddly enough it was at the funeral of the man who discovered us in the first place that I came to realize the story wasn't finished yet. So here we go again. Don't think you will be able to see us playing every club for weekends on end. We will only play a small selection of shows and this won't happen before 2015. Besides that, the core of the band will consist of only Michiel and myself. We'll have some cool guest musicians lined up, though, to make sure we'll give you the best performance possible. "Last but not least, our first shows will be where we played our last ones three years ago. Our rebirth will happen at 70,000 Tons of Metal 2015. See you around!"
