New Jersey pirate metallers Swashbuckle have issued the following statement about canceling several upcoming tour dates:
"Ahoy scallywags and wenches alike,
"Due to unfortunate circumstances, we will have to drop off from select dates from the Monsters of Death tour. Captain Crashride was denied entrance to Canada due to being a shitty pirate and spreading the scurvy throughout the masses.
"So those looking forward to seeing us on the western side of Canada and the west coast of the USA will have to wait it out until we get said situation straightened out. We will rejoin the tour on Dec. 9th in Atlanta and continue to have massive amounts of fun and shred faces with hooks and harpoons. We will make it back to Canada and high five and mosh you all in the near future, so be prepared for piratical glory and epic shenannigans."

Swedish death metallers HYPOCRISY have issued the following statement in regards to their upcoming tour with ENSIFERUM that starts on Friday, November 6th:
“Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are forced to stay home until U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services process and authorize our working visas. This is the first time the band has faced a situation like this and it’s extremely frustrating, as well as depressing, since the last thing we want to do is disappoint our loyal fans who have waited years to see us live in the US. We filed for our visas with plenty of time, but as some probably don’t know, the US government has changed its rules when it comes to visas issued to artists so it’s become tougher. Even if we have already toured the US numerous times.
As it stands now, we are on stand-by mode and waiting to receive the green light. We hope it’s just a few days before that happens, in the meantime we want to apologize to all the fans that planned on going to see us tear shit up live. We will do our best to re-join the tour as soon as possible!”
HYPOCRISY have enlisted the help of CHILDREN OF BODOM guitarist/frontman Alexi Laiho to temporarily fill the vacant second guitarist spot on their tour alongside ENSIFERUM, HYPOCRISY, EX DEO, BLACKGUARD, SWASHBUCKLE. More...

John Kevill (vocals) states: “After the Monsters of Death tour (with Vader, Decrepit Birth, The Amenta, Augury and Swashbuckle) we get to go off and do some shows with fucking Megadeth! For us as a band this is pretty huge, it will be excellent to share the stage with such a legendary band. Also we are playing around the mid-north of the country in some places we've never been. Then after that we are going to Hawaii for some shows, so the rest of the year is looking completely badass. The band’s live performance is better and more lethal than ever before, so we look forward to seeing you all soon.”

Blackguard vocalist Paul Ablaze has checked in with the following Summer Slaughter Tour recap and new album update:
"Hey everyone! Paul Ablaze here. I'm very sorry for the lack of updates, these things slip my mind sometimes . But here it is finally (better late than never i suppose) a little something to let you all know what's gone down and what's in the works!
"Summer Slaughter Re-cap (i started writing this a while ago)
"This years summer slaughter has come and gone. Beers were drunk, blood was shed, vomit covered jeans, didn't see anyone cry but who knows? Point is no one came out the other end of this beast unchanged in some way, and we are without a doubt stronger than we've ever been as a band because of it.
This being only our second full north american tour we had everything to prove to both the fans and our peers, and i believe we won the respect of both along the way. I had said early on in the tour how amazed i was on how social everyone was and how much we as a tour came together and pulled for one another. I truly believe that the only reason this tour finished when it was suppose to and not 4 weeks earlier was because of the strength in character everyone displayed and how devoid everyone was of any kind of "ego" or "rock star" mentality.
"There are certain memories that surly stick out amongst the never ending (sometimes fuzzy) memories of good times that happened over the past month and a half. a few note worthy ones include: More...
