It seems that Eyehategod are having some sort of dispute or miscommunication with a booking agent regarding their Australian tour dates. First the band had the following to say:
"We are not coming to Australia, and you can thank Heathen Skulls booking, Robert McManus. We apologize to all of our fans; its not our fault!"The aforementioned McManus responded directly:
"THIS ISN'T MY FAULT, it was a fuck up on the airline's part with the booking, I'm trying to get this resolved as we speak."Not long after, Heathen Skulls offered up the following:
"As some of you may have read already, there has been some issues relating to Eyehategod's scheduled flights to Australia. Heathen Skulls is currently doing everything with in our power to resolve the issue and get the band on the next flight out to Australia. Stay tuned for more details."Now comes an official statement from the Eyehategod camp:
"Due to poor planning by the Australian booking agent, Eyehategod are sorry to say our Australian tour is now cancelled. We were left at the airport without our flights booked and then were expected to pay for them out of pocket an hour before boarding time. We were literally left standing with passports in hand but no way to travel. Many, many apologies to our Australian friends and fans. We will be back as soon as we can. Please understand this is not our fault. Eyehategod loves Australia and were super excited to come back over."UPDATE: And now the latest update from Heathen Skulls:
"Unfortunately at this late stage Eyehatgod's scheduled show tomorrow in Perth will be cancelled or possibly rescheduled to the following week, we are currently still waiting on final word from the band to see if they are able to fly out tomorrow so East Coast dates can still go ahead as originally planned but chances are slim. As soon as we know the outcome we will update everyone, thanks for your patience during this time."
