We are very sorry about this sad crisis that has happened. We all are in full preparations to re-schedule the Canadian tour dates as soon as possible. We thank everyone for their understanding on this unfortunate crisis, and sincere support for these difficult times. We promise to make every full effort to strike Canada with all our blackend death metal hearts! Thank you to everyone out there for your support and understanding of this time in personal need. We salute you all! See you soon."

ESTUARY guitarist Ash Thomas comments: "Needless to say, we are really looking forward to this experience. This will be our first time performing in Canada, and from what I can tell there's a killer Metal scene there. We promise to give it our all for the death metal freaks in these cities. Also, it's a real fucking honor to do these dates with GOREAPHOBIA They are by far one of my favorite bands from the early '90s era, and hold legendary status as far as I'm concerned . This makes it all the more KILLER!"
"Speaking of a real honor," comments ESTUARY's lead vocalist Zdenka Prado, "We are extremely pleased to announce that Jack Owen will once again be handling bass duties on this trek. Jack did an awesome job on the Balkans Assassination, tour and we are thankful to have him on board once again. These shows will definitely kick ass! I can't wait to share the front lines with the Canadian maniacs in some non-stop head thrashing action."
Jack Owen states: "I'm honored once again to be sharing the stage with my friends, and thrash death maniacs ESTUARY! Also thrilled to head to the great white north and see the many fans and friends from over the years! It's a short tour, but should be full of blast beats and mystery meat! Some of you may not know, but I will be playing bass on this tour as I did on ESTUARY's European tour in October of 2007, which was a total blast. See you soon!"
GOREAPHOBIA's Chris G. Mezzadurus adds: "We are very excited about coming into Canada for the first time. As A matter of fact, this Canadian tour will be the first time in GOREAPHOBIA's history to EVER play outside the United States!!! Canada has A very close and sacred place in my soul for extreme heavy metal! Canada has spawned some of the greatest metal acts of all time for myself, GOREAPHOBIA, and legions of metalheads as well! VOIVOD has been one of GOREAPHOBIA's most paragon inspiration and innovative master of extreme metal music! Also, bands we have admired and loved are RAZOR, EXCITER, SACRIFICE, SLAUGHTER, and PILEDRIVER, to name A few mighty Canadian influences. We hope that the Canadian metal maniacs that come to see us for the first time are just as excited as we are to perform for them! See you all soon, and in the great words of EXCITER, 'LONG LIVE THE LOUD!'"
