Elvenking Cancels U.K. Shows

Elvenking will release new album "The Pagan Manifesto" in May 2014 via AFM Records, with a teaser trailer available below.

The band has also announced its upcoming U.K. shows have been cancelled, issued the following statement:

"We are sorry to announce we won’t be able to play the UK shows as planned, for reasons that go beyond our will and control. Unfortunately the promoters didn’t show any respect and/or any kind of professional behavior to us.

"These shows had already been canceled in September 2013, and that caused us a big loss of money; nevertheless, we decided to cover those costs ourselves, with the promise of a better situation for the re-scheduled February gigs. After months of silence, unanswered mails, not a single information, plan or time schedule, we read on Facebook that the Dublin show was canceled and nobody had the good sense to let us know.

"Once asked what was happening and why nobody was telling us anything about this gig, the promoters decided not to pay the agreed amount of money that would have covered our costs for getting there.

"Our agency informed us that the advance payment, which was agreed from both sides - and which we needed to buy our flight tickets, was late. Furthermore, the contract hasn't been signed (until today) by the promoter, and the promoter informed our agency, that they don´t have money to pay right now and they have to wait for the money from the ticket sales. In other words: If the sales are bad (and no one ever told us how the sales were), we might end up paying again. More...
