Human - Cadaver Academy Album Release - Nz Tour 2009

Christchurch metal band HUMAN releases their long awaited new album "Cadaver Academy" this May 2009 and will be heading out on a national tour to celebrate its arrival.

The album was expected to be released in early 2008, however a change in band personnel forced a halt to the recording process. After the addition of a new drummer the group then decided to scrap all of its recorded work on the project and start again from scratch. Although it was a risky move to ditch such a large amount of studio time, energy and money, the band felt that its new line up and consequently refreshed sound would make altogether a better album. And, the results have proven the move to be unquestionably worth it.

HUMANs scheduled May tour will cover their hometown of Christchurch as well as Dunedin, Wellington, and Auckland, while also including new territory like Timaru and Palmerston North. Says vocalist / lead guitarist Scott Spatcher-Harrison: "This is NZ tour #4 for us and its going to be interesting to see how the rest of the country takes to the new line up and new sound. Weve never been in better form and cant wait to get out there and make a racket. Actually, itll be more of a tight, well rehearsed racket."

Having been one of New Zealands most enduring metal bands (originating from Christchurch in March 1992) the bands accomplishments have run the gamut from appearing on national and international television to supporting metal acts as big as the UKs Dragonforce. Most recently, HUMANs guitarists Scott Spatcher-Harrison & Kezz Brewster have become official endorsees of Kent Armstrong guitar pickups, based in the USA.
