Arsis drops off Carcass tour

Arsis has reportedly cancelled their participation in the upcoming Carcass tour, which kicks next week. Though the band has yet to make an official announcement, a statement issued yesterday and attributed to drummer Dave Kinkade reads as follows: "I regret to inform everyone that Arsis will not be on the Carcass tour scheduled to kick off in Philadelphia on the 13th of March. This is due to situations in Arsis that are out of my hands. "Due to the situation, I am available for session/ possible long-term drum work nationally and internationally. Those interested can contact me at: "On a positive note, the new Borknagar album is nearing the final completion stages. Having spoken with Øystein today, I am told that vocals and synths are well under way and we will all be meeting in Oslo at the end of April for the final mixing and mastering. So far, drums and guitars are finished and let me be the first to say that this album is going to be immense. By far the most brilliant material that Borknagar has ever written, this work is going to have all the “meat n’ potatoes” musically and production wise. I trust that all the fans will enjoy this effort."

Maybe they should have kept that amazing drummer who played on the newest album.

Arsis is boring live, you aren't missing anything. Great on cd, though.

Why would you drop off on a high profile tour like this wtf even for arsis?

Municipalgayste 3/7/2009 3:02:21 PM

everytime I've been set to see these guys they have dropped off the tour or missed that specific date, so this really sucks, but I am excited to hear the new Borknagar just the same.

GOKILLYOURSELF 3/7/2009 3:22:26 PM

Celebration of Guilt is the only worth while thing they've put out.

porpoise 3/8/2009 9:31:27 PM

if any of you stupid gays aren't going to the carcass show because arsis was your deciding factor then you might as well cannonball into a volcano. the world will be better off.

porpoise 3/8/2009 9:32:33 PM

dont get me wrong i like arsis but guys... its carcass. these guys wrote heartwork.

careerforacaballero 3/9/2009 10:35:47 PM

Jim Malone needs to quit music. This is pathetic. WHy the hell is a guy who has been in the band for like 8 weeks speaking for them? All of them should be ashamed

thrasherjohn 3/12/2009 12:12:12 AM

DIEIHATEYOU 3/7/2009 10:25:59 AM Yeah...awesome Arsis...way to cancel every tour you ever do.----more like way to drop off the biggest tour they'll probably ever do.
