Shining And Saturnus Drop Off Urpin Festival 2014 Lineup

Norwegian black jazz outfit Shining has issued the following announcement about canceling the band's Uprin Fest appearance:

"Our show at Urpin Fest in Slovakia has unfortunately been canceled. Our agreement with the promoter was that the festival was to pay for the flights, but it seems now that the festival unfortunately can't afford these flights after all, and has been forced to cancel the show.

"We were very much looking forward to playing at this festival, and we hate canceled shows as much as you do. I know of several people that have already bought tickets to this festival just to see us, and we want to apologize to them. Let's hope we can be back in Slovakia very soon!"

Saturnus was also scheduled to appear at the festival in July and issued this statement about dropping off the bill: "Saturnus would sincerely like to apologize to you Mirík and OZ URPÍN for their cancellation and for not being able to play the festival.

"Our lead guitarist Rune broke his elbow in a bike accident last week and as a result all concerts and rehearsals, writing for the new album have been put on hold. We would like to come back to Slovakia at the end of 2014 to play for you as a way of making it up to our fans and to apologize and compensate Mirík and OZ URPÏN.

"We realize the hard work and effort that goes into organizing and paying for a festival and we are very very sorry for not being able to fulfill our obligations. We promise to come back and play a very special show for our Slovakian fans at the end of the year. Thank you and sorry again."
