Obscura has announced the cancellation of several shows resulting from a hand injury suffered by drummer Sebastian Lanser. Additionally, the group has recruited Alex Rudinger to play for them during The Summer Slaughter Tour 2015, which kicks off late this month. Here's the official word:
"Regrettably, we are unable to perform at Progstage Festival, Tel Aviv and Metaldays Festival Slovenia this year. Our drummer Sebastian Lanser overstrung his left hand and suffers from a serious inflammation since then. Playing this complex music with this condition won't allow us to play a tight 80 minute headlining show our fans and we as musicians demand. "We decided not to play a halfhearted set, instead we postpone both concerts and come back with an extended live show including songs of our new, upcoming album. Dates will be published soon. "In the meantime Alex Rüdinger (Conquering Dystopia) will step in to play this year's Summer Slaughter festival tour in North America."
