Kampfar Comments On Show Cancellation

Norwegian black metal band Kampfar has issued the following statement about their recent festival cancellation:

"In light of Kampfar's cancellation of the show at the Fireblade Force Festival in Liechtenstein, Germany on October 11, we feel the need to publish this explanation. This show was supposed to be the last show of our Tordenstorm tour. Unfortunately, our tour ended at the side of the road in the alps, only a few hours before we were supposed to hit the stage. Our tour bus was stopped by the Austrian police due to a mechanical problem. The bus was taken to a garage for inspection, and it was not possible to repair the problem at the time. By the time we realized that we could not continue, it was too late to find an alternative solution to take us the remaining distance. Hence, we had to make the difficult decision to call off our show at Fireblade Force. On behalf of Elite, our crew, the festival, and ourselves, we are very sorry that this was the outcome. We have come to an agreement with the organizers of the festival and will be working together in the future."

I like the fact that they felt the need to publish the explanation. I feel bad that they had to cancel their last gig off of the tour; that would suck for any band to do.
