HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE SUICIDE COMMANDO HQ
In name of the entire SUICIDE COMMANDO crew we would like to wish you all a happy 2015 !
2014 wasn't exactly the best year for SUICIDE COMMANDO. We still had our latest "unterwelt" single storming the clubs at the beginning of 2014, but what was supposed to become another year with extensive touring around the globe, 2 times ended up in hospital after our shows in Berlin (dislocated ankle) and only few weeks later in Los Angeles (torn ligaments and meniscus) which lead to operation end of June. Rehab took several months and in fact still is not over, but I'm happy we already could return on stage in October, so the year wasn't completely fucked up.
2015 is promising to become much better with planned new releases (new single, new album, a vinyl compilation ...) and new live shows around the world, so we ain't dead yet !
On Oct. 24th SUICIDE COMMANDO finally returned on stage after Johan's knee surgery which kept him from stage for over 5 months.
Here's now an update of what is still coming up next:
15.11.2014 Brescia - Italy
13.12.2014 Malmö - Sweden
07.02.2015 Cannes - France
02.05.2015 Mannheim - Germany
15/16.05.2015 Neerpelt - Belgium (Eurorock festival)
08/09.08.2015 Hildesheim - Germany (M'era Luna festival)
SUICIDE COMMANDO ANNOUNCE NEW LIVE DATES

Whether any further shows will be affected is not known at this moment, but we'll keep you posted here and on the Facebook profile of SUICIDE COMMANDO at www.facebook.com/IIXIII
VINTAGE SHOWS IN NEW YORK AND TORONTO CANCELLED !
Due to the unfortunate knee injury incurred at their Los Angeles show end of April, it is with deep regret that Johan now has to cancel both the planned vintage shows in New York (22.05.2014) and Toronto (24.05.2014).
MRI scan of the knee showed a torn ACL (ligaments), so recovery will take several more weeks.
At this moment it is unknown if more future shows have to be cancelled, but we obviously will keep you informed.
THANK YOU AMERICA
SUICIDE COMMANDO just returned from the first part of their American 2014 tour which brought them to cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Ann Arbor, Tampa and Mexico City.
Unfortunately Johan badly injured his knee (severe fracture of the ligaments) during the sold out Los Angeles show but nonetheless continued doing the last shows with brace and crutches although forbidden by the doctors.
Recovery might take up to several weeks.
We hereby want to thank all for their warm welcome, supportive words and understanding of this unfortunate situation.
SUICIDE COMMANDO RETURNS TO THE US, MEXICO & CANADA
After their last successful stops in the US, Mexico and Canada ... SUICIDE COMMANDO soon will return to America again for some more live shows.
