Evil To Replace Toxik At German Festival

Organizers for Germany's Keep It True IX Festival, which is scheduled for November 3rd in Dittigheim at Sporthalle, have issued the following update:

"Unfortunately we have good and bad news for you. The bad news is, that TOXIK had to cancel their show at Keep It True IX. The reason is that their Polish management booked a three-week tour around the festival with eight day offs in a row, which was financially feasible for the band. Also, bassist Brian Bonnini quit the band some weeks ago and they couldn'?t find a replacement for him until now. We are all extremely disappointed by the cancellation, but did everything we could. The flights were already booked. We hope you are not too disappointed by that news. As replacement we booked one of the biggest cult bands from Europe: Danish metalheads EVIL will take the place of Toxik in the billing and also will have a big surprise for you. The final billing is now: LEATHERWOLF, EVIL, SACRED OATH, PAGAN ALTAR, STEEL ASSASSIN, PORTRAIT, ENFORCER. The festival has been sold out since April."
