The Rock The Nation promotion company has issued the following update about Eluveitie dropping off of the 2009 PagaFest tour:

"Hello to all Pagan folks out there!

"We’re almost here for the second edition of PaganFest America and are very excited for this years tour. With the anticipation continuing to mount, this will be THE tour to attend this year, we promise! On a related note, there have been some changes to the tour line up. Unfortunately, Swiss folk band ELUVEITIE will no longer be able to make it on this edition and we’ve decided that it would be wiser to wait for the band to return in the fall since they’ve already played during PaganFest America 2008’s touring cycle. On the bright side, ELUVEITIE will return on a new tour we are currently working on (yes…we’re working on something very cool for this Fall) where ELUVEITIE will play an acoustic and a full metal set and it will be worth the wait. Stay tuned for more info to come!

"With this being said, we have increased the playing times of all the bands on PaganFest America and whether you come for your favorite or for all of the bands, you will get the set time you and the bands deserve!

"On to another update: below are the final date additions to the tour. It is very difficult to get all these fine bands to commit at the right time frames to tour. This year we had to make it a short run because of the bands conflicting schedules. It wasn’t a preference of any kind, just logistics. We will try our best in the future to make this tour go everywhere!"

I just hope they come to New Zealand. I was kinda more into Sepultura, Soulfly, Opeth, Machine Head, but these guys got me into folk metal.
Well - it's good to have metal for all moods!
