Soilwork Cancels Rockharz Open Air Appearance

Swedish outfit Soilwork is forced to cancel a gig at this year's Rockharz Open Air Festival (July 10 - 12 in Ballenstedt, Germany) due to singer Björn "Speed" Strid suffering a serious back injury.

The band states: "This decision was a hard one to make, especially since it is the second time in a row after last year's forced cancellation."

Commented Strid: "It is with great regret that I have to inform you that I'm not gonna be able to perform at the Rock Harz festival on Friday. It almost feels like a curse, I'm sure most of you know that we had to cancel last years Rock Harz festival as well. We were so excited to make it up to you this year but I guess we have to wait yet another year.

"I basically screwed up my back 10 days ago, while working out. I felt a shooting pain and stopped immediately. That same night my back started swelling. Next day, I felt better and in the coming days it healed up pretty fast. Then last Friday, I made a small movement to reach for the remote, while watching World Cup Football and I felt an intense shooting pain once again. I thought to myself: 'This is gonna be bad.' I was right. I'm currently not able to sit and can barely walk. More...
