Marduk has issued the following update about postponing the previously announced Central America shows due to travel issues:
"Because of misinformation from one of the airlines involed in Marduks travel to Central America the band got uphold and couldnt get on the connection flight. It was totaly the fault of the airline. Marduk had just completed one of the planned three flights to Costa Rica when the problem occured. There was no time to book new flights to make it in time to do the 3 shows.
"The band and booking agency are currently checking options to rebook the shows as soon as possible. Marduk feels very unfortunate for the situation as the band is eager and burning with devotion to march across Central America. More news to be posted as soon as possible."
The Catholic Church of Costa Rica has criticised the Swedish black metal outfit Marduk for their use of blasphemy and religious iconography. Marduk are scheduled to perform in Costa Rica at the Pepper Disco on July 29th, which will be the band's first concert in the country in seven years.
