Ne Obliviscaris Pulls Out Of Against The Grain 5

Melbourne’s Ne Obliviscaris has pulled out of Against The Grain 5, to be held this Saturday, September 19 at Fowlers lIve in Adelaide, due to visa issues. Adelaide power metal band Skintilla will take their place, armed with their new release album “King of Kings.” Skintilla will be playing on Stage 1 at 6pm on the day.

There are still pre-sale tickets available through www.venuetix.com.au and there will also be a number of tickets available at the door on the day.

The band issued the following statement:

"Unfortunately we have had to withdraw from Against the Grain 5, which is happening this Saturday, September 19 in Adelaide.

"The short version of the story is essentially that there have been some complications and delays with our French lead guitarist, Benjamin Baret’s, new visa and due to these complications and delays he is currently stuck in France and not allowed back in Australia until the new visa has been approved. We have been working very hard to try and resolve this situation in time for ATG5 this weekend, but unfortunately despite our best efforts it wasn’t to be.

"The whole band is extremely disappointed we are no longer able to play as we were really looking forward to performing at this fantastic event and catching up with all our Adelaide fans, as well as those fans travelling from other parts of the country. We’d like to strongly urge all NeO fans to make sure you head along to the show regardless, as it is going to be a great showcase of Australian metal and is a great event for the Australian metal scene, so the more support everyone gives it the better.

"Sincerest apologies to all those who were looking forward to seeing us perform this Saturday, and for all those in Adelaide- we’ll see you in 2010…with a new album out!"
