Taake show cancelled over allegations of Nazism

Thursday, February 15, 2018 4:26 PM PT


Norwegian black metal band Taake will kick off a North American tour next month, however, the tour's very first show has been cancelled. The gig had been slated to take place at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City, but previous accusations of Nazism and hate mongering leveled at Taake apparently prompted the venue to scrap the show:

"Please note that the Taake show scheduled for March 24th has been cancelled. We are providing full refunds to all ticket holders. Please email info@lprnyc.com with any questions you may have."

New York City Antifa is one of the organizations that pressured the venue to cancel the show:


Other venues scheduled to host Taake are also being targeted, so don't be surprised if more shows are cancelled.




UPDATE: Regarding the show cancellation, Taake frontman Hoest has issued the following statement:

"I have clearly explained many times throughout the years that me wearing a swastika once at a German concert was not at all meant to show support for the nazi ideology. It was all about doing something extreme for the sake of it, which certainly backfired.But it has now been 11 years and the band has even performed in Israel (!) Anyway, similar incidents have not happened in Taake's 25 year long career and will obviously not happen again. But certain parties seem to find this cold case unforgivable nevertheless, insisting on wilful misunderstanding.

"So, once and for all, Taake is not a racist band. Never has been, never will be. Still claiming so is as ridiculous and unfounded as are the attempts at sabotaging our highly anticipated shows."


UPDATE 2: In light of recent events, support band King Dude will no longer participate in the Taake tour. The following statement has been put forth:

"For reasons out of my control, and frankly out of my realm of understanding, I will be removing myself from the tour with Taake. It must be made clear that I am a Luciferian and do not preach hate, nor would I endorse a setting that allows hate to happen. I believe in both personal and spiritual growth as well as the spread of knowledge beyond all sacrifice and at all costs. The banner under which people enter a King Dude concert must be welcoming to all people of all walks of life, race, religion, gender etc. This should go without saying as this has always been the way I have conducted my concerts and I'm not sure why it should change for this tour. I absolutely do not welcome political discourse at my concerts as it has no place there. My concerts are a place that should be a sanctuary for everyone, a place for people to find church without having to go to one.

"Stay tuned here for updates regarding make up shows to all of you. Thanks again for your continued support."

Aaaaand the Ctrl+Left psychopaths continue the pussification of America.

If you don't support some idiotic black metal band, don't go. If you want to get real squirrely, maybe buy you some posters and hold a protest. But bullying the venue is some childish bullshit

^^^^^^^

Yes. A thousand times: YES

The everyone-gets-a-trophy crowd act so conservative that the religious right thanks antifa for taking care of the light work for them.

Ever heard of freedom? Stop worrying about what other people do. Stop being a loser.

Taake blows. The vocalist just brags about being the only real black metal. If your'e gonna be a racist make it look good at least like Vargy

one of the tenets of fascism is forcible suppression of the opposition...

That's EXACTLY what these Antifa idiots are advocating when they try to shout down opposing views, be it a reasonable intellectual like Ben Shapiro or this group of retarded agitating neanderthals in Taake.

You people are a product of the total dumbing down out society. Get a job.

Lol this "snowflake" talk is really funny. You don't get to wear Nazi shit and expect to come out looking innocent. Cid vicious wasnt cool and neither are you. Neckbeard nsbm cucks are too eager to swallow the seed of every metal edgelord for the sake of being grim. Shock value is as pedestrian as the radio rock I'm sure you joke about.

Should cancel tour because no one wants to see 40 year old men paint their faces and yell about their hate for their parents.

Nothing shocking here...Antifa being the thought police and forcing others via pressure/public stigma.

Hey you know what's strange about that?
It's the very thing actually Nazi Germany once did.
