Darkology Post Statement On Delay, Tour Vocalist

After a period of silence since releasing details on the sophomore album "Fated to Burn," Texas' Darkology released both a statement on the album's delay as well as announced that vocalist Kelly Sundown Carpenter will not be able to accompany the band on the upcoming European tour with Overkill, Prong and Enforcer.

As to the album delays, the band posted: "This comes from PRIME EON MEDIA: People. We know that you've been complaining about the lack of updates and we are extremely sorry about that, but the news we are about to unveil through an imminent press release, will probably put a lot of things into 'some' perspective. There will be a clue about the album which is obviously coming out. It was never our intention to delay it, (why would we?), although, we managed to do a hell of a job at just that. We understand your frustration, but by being impolite or just taking it out on us, it's not going to help at all. We hope that most of you should be able to come and check the band out live, throughout Europe, in support of the great lineup of bands that Killfest 2014 brings together, namely the Kings of Thrash, Overkill themselves, the masters of groove, Prong, the young pretenders to the throne of trad metal, Enforcer and you know who...."

In addition, the band issued a statement over the past weekend about vocalist Kelly Sundown Carpenter and his unavailability for the upcoming Killfest Tour: More...
