Swedish thrashers THE HAUNTED have dropped off MACHINE HEAD's upcoming States Turn Blue To Gray North American tour. THE HAUNTED's cancellation is said to be the result of guitarist Patrik Jensen's desire to spend time with his very sick father back home in Sweden.

Jensen was recently forced to leave the group's European tour with CRADLE OF FILTH early while the rest of the band completed the trek as a four-piece.

MACHINE HEAD have yet to announce a replacement act for the tour, which is also scheduled to include DEVILDRIVER and IT DIES TODAY.

THE HAUNTED have been confirmed for the second stage at this year's Ozzfest beginning on July 15 in Mansfield, Massachusetts.

Yeah it does suck - for Patrik and for their fans. I was looking forward to seeing The Haunted in that great lineup! I doubt they'll get a replacement that I like as much (just my opinion though)

The Haunted was the only band other than Machine Head I wanted to see. Last time Machine Head came to Chicago, Arch Enemy had just dropped off the bill, which was cool cause God Forbid played a longer set.

I'm going to see Machine Head this upcoming saturday (may 14th). Sucks that I wont be seeing The Haunted. I didn't know they were supposed to be playing also. I heard that the show is still really good, so I don't want to miss it.
