German based Pirate Smile Promotions has posted the following message online:

"We have to inform you that METAL CHURCH cannot do the planned tour with OVERKILL in spring 2009.

"Kurdt Vanderhoof (guitars) was suffering with his back problems for a long time. After several treatments this summer all looked good so far, but last weekend it got so bad again that his doctor warned him about doing a bigger tour before the problem is solved.

"We are very sorry, but better to cancel the tour now, before we are deep in pre-sales and we have to cancel then. We all are very sorry about this, but the health of Kurdt is too important than taking the risk!

"We all hope that the doctors are right in giving the hope that after a few months medical treatments it will be ok again without an operation."
