Conqueror and US Tour in 2007

For those of us thirsty for more following the release of Jesu's EP Silver, some very good news has been published on Justin K. Broadrick's blog:

The new Jesu album, recently titled 'Conqueror', is currently at the end of the mixing stage and is about to be mastered. There are 8 songs on 'Conqueror', with a running time of just over 60 minutes. Planned for a February 2007 release on Hydra Head, a U.S tour will coincide with the release, shortly followed by tours of Japan and Europe. More details as they come through...

This would mark Justin's first tour of the US since he was with Godflesh and is incredibly welcome news for die-hard fans like myself. He recently toured Europe with his other project, Final, as the opener... let's hope we can expect the same in the US. Also, Justin has a presence on myspace with the Official Jesu Myspace and the Official Final Myspace.
