Hell Cancels Keep It True XII Festival Appearance

The organizers of Germany's Keep It True XII Festival have issued the following update about Hell canceling their appearance:

"It is with great regret that HELL (UK) have been forced to cancel their appearance at KIT 12. Kev Bower, the band's guitarist and synthesizer player, was today informed that he must have immediate abdominal (stomach) surgery to treat a problem which will become very dangerous if not treated straight away, and his surgeon has warned him that an 8-10 week recovery period is the minimum required after this. Since Kev performs such a complex 2-part role within the band, finding a replacement is impossible given the close proximity of the show. HELL's first European appearance had generated great interest amongst metal fans - to the extent that some die-hards were actually traveling from the USA to see the show. This decision has been extremely sad, and HELL would like to offer their sincere apologies to all who were looking forward to seeing them. Our great thanks go to Oliver and all involved with KIT for inviting us - HELL very much hopes to see everyone at another KIT, another time....."
