From: Helsingborg, Sweden
Last Known Status: Active

Background

Evergrey is a progressive metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden. The band was founded in 1995 and released its debut album The Dark Discovery in 1998. Evergrey's lyrics have always been of the darker sort, and the same can be said of the band's imagery. While The Dark Discovery dealt with a variety of ideas, many later albums have been concept albums, dealing with issues like self-reformation (Recreation Day), paranoia, alien abduction (In Search of Truth), child abuse, cults and religion (The Inner Circle).

Evergrey Cancels Tour Dates Due To Theft

Evergrey was scheduled to perform several upcoming tour dates with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The band has now checked in with the following update about the remaining shows in Spain and Portugal being canceled due to having equipment stolen:

"Due to a break-in in Evergrey’s tour bus all gigs in Spain and Portugal are canceled. Evergrey lost equipment and merchandise for a value beyond 35000 Euros so it is impossible to continue. We pass Lyon on the way home and will use the equipment of the local support. Maybe we can go home and get new equipment for the Holland shows and come back but this is still uncertain. A list of ALL things stolen will be presented here together with the Police report. More details on this soon… To our Spanish and Portuguese fans we are extremely sorry but we have NO chance of making it with everything being stolen."
