Evile Postpones U.K. Tour Dates

U.K. thrash act Evile postponed the upcoming tour across the United Kingdom this September (dates shown here) due to "unforeseen circumstances." The plan is to have the shows rescheduled for sometime in 2014.

The following was posted on the band's Official Facebook Page:

"Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control we unfortunately have to postpone our upcoming shows in September across the UK. We apologize sincerely to everyone who was planning to attend and those who have already bought tickets.

"The shows aren't being cancelled outright, they will be happening sometime next year, so all tickets will still be valid at the same value when the shows have found new dates.

"In 14 years of playing shows we have only purposefully cancelled two shows, broken down on the way to four, and missed another two because of delayed flights, which isn't a bad record for all the years we've been playing, so postponing these September shows isn't a decision we've made lightly or easily.

"When we have new dates for the shows in 2014 we will announce them; as mentioned previously all tickets will still be valid. Again, we apologize wholeheartedly for the postponement, and thank you for the continued support you guys give us".

Witchsorrow And More Playing Bloodstock 2012

The Bloodstock 2012 organizers have announced a further three acts for the Sophie stage at this year's festival.

Returning to Catton Hall, Witchsorrow threatens the British summer time with downtuned doom and gloom that echoes metal greats such as St Vitus, Candlemass and Trouble. Says mainman Necro Skull: "We are truly honoured to be returning to cast a shadow over Bloodstock once more. We promise you total doom annihilation, a celebration for the damned as the end of the world looms at the end of this wretched annum. To be in the company of such excellent bands as Watain, Alice Cooper, Orange Goblin, Grand Magus and Winterfylleth is a grand thing indeed. God curse us, every one!"

Returning for the second year in a row, London loud-louts Dripback take a break from the studio to come back to the Sophie stage with their seething mix of hardcore and death metal. The band commented, “For us it’s all about being intense in tents, so this really is the perfect festival slot for Dripback. We’re all so buzzing about playing with Crowbar, Hatebreed, Testament and all the other awesome bands, this really is the best festival."

Finally, Swiss thrashers Battalion make their UK debut at Bloodstock. The Thrash Maniacs check in to say: “It's the first time for us to play in England! What a fucking start! We're looking forward to kick some ass there!!! See ya Bloodstock! Cheers from Zurich, the Battalion-Bastards.”
