Bolt Thrower Abandons U.S. Tour Plans

British extreme metal pioneers BOLT THROWER have posted the following message on their official web site:

"BOLT THROWER have had to cancel plans to tour the U.S. this year with their 'Those Still Loyal' tour.

"Unfortunately their label, Metal Blade Records, refused to financially back the band, i.e. pay towards the flights, etc. Despite trying to work out other ways to make this happen, the band found they were unable to finance a tour of this scale on their own and therefore had to stop any further planning of the tour.

"BOLT THROWER apologise to Maurizio and Thunderdome Touring, the promoters/bands who were willing to participate in the tour and their fans in the U.S. who were hoping to finally see them live. Regrettably, it looks like while BOLT THROWER are signed to Metal Blade Records they will be unable to tour the States."

BOLT THROWER recently completed a European tour in support of its new CD, "Those Once Loyal", which entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 76 — the group's highest-charting release in Germany so far. The follow-up to 2001's "Honour, Valour, Pride" was recorded at Andy Faulkner's Sable Rose studios and is the band's first album since the return of original vocalist Karl Willetts as a full-time member.
