My Dying Bride respond to recent cancellations of 2024 live performances

My Dying Bride

British death-doom legends My Dying Bride have recently addressed the cancellation of their 2024 touring plans, including their participation in the annual Maryland Deathfest. This news came shortly after the release of their latest studio album, A Mortal Binding, last week.

In an official statement shared on April 21st, the band provided an explanation for their change of plans.

The statement reads:

The production of this latest album was arduous and challenging to such an extent that it has revealed fractures within the band. These tensions had already been observed during the creation of the previous 2 albums and were only exacerbated during the Covid period. Over the past few months, they have intensified, causing a profound sense of discontent among the band members. The resulting stress and the pervasive feeling of burnout, along with the physical and mental malaise it creates, necessitated a period of time off which unfortunately impacts on live shows.

The reason for the lack of an official statement until now is because the band has truly hoped to resolve these internal issues and perform some shows this year while trying find a resolution in time to satisfy all parties involved. Sadly, this resolution is yet to be found.

Regrettably, a lack of understanding and poor communication from our professional partners has resulted in an untimely and chaotic mess from which a recovery is challenging. However, the promoters have now been officially contacted and it is hoped that steps can be taken to minimise the impact on you all.

We apologise for keeping you in the dark, but these are indeed challenging times.
