Necrophagist, Daath, And Suffocation Cancel Summer Breeze Open Air 2009 Appearances

The Summer Breeze Open Air Festival 2009 will take place in Dinkelsbühl, Germany on August 13th - 15th. The festival's official website has been updated with the following information about Necrophagist, Daath, and Suffocation canceling their appearances:

"Planning the SUMMER BREEZE means again and again things do not work out the way we please. Therefore we have to announce even a couple of band cancellations. Firstly DAATH have cancelled all European shows for the month of August including their SUMMER BREEZE appearance.

"Secondly the entire SUMMER SLAUGHTER tour of which we have booked the entire billing of SUFFOCATION, SUICIDE SILENCE, NECROPHAGIST and THE FACELESS for he BREEZE, has been cancelled. Of course we have tried to have this package play the BREEZE even though. Talking about SUFFOCATION and THE FACELESS chances aren’t bad, really. But SUFFOCATION and NECROPHAGIST we could not do anything about.

"Here is what NECROPHAGIST stated regarding: 'We regret to inform you that NECROPHAGIST won’t be able to play this year’s SUMMER BREEZE Open Air. The timeframe in which the festival takes place was blocked to finish up the writing process for our new album, the follow up to 2004´s 'Epitaph'. There won’t be any live activities after this year’s 'Summer Slaughter' tour, which will see NECROPHAGIST headline across North America, so that we can fully concentrate on writing and recording later in the year.

"After the release in 2010, the European continent will be our main focus and we will be hitting all the cities we neglected in the past couple of years.

"And if everything works out the way we want it to, we will be seeing all of you at SUMMER BREEZE Open Air next year!

"We wish we had better news to tell. But we are quite positive to be able to deliver replacements within the next couple of days and weeks. We are working high speed to complete our billing shortly."
