Carnophage Cancels U.S. Tour Dates

Turkish metal act Carnophage has issued the following statement about the band canceling all upcoming U.S. shows:

"Sometimes it’s really hard to overcome the situations if there are dependent variables exist out of your control. Almost for every European underground band, US tour is a childhood dream. And it stays as a dream for most of them since traveling overseas is not the same shit as traveling on the same mainland.

"Anyway we’re not gonna distress more by explaining the difficulties of being an extreme metal band. Due to the withdrawals of sponsors, we have to cancel the US trip since the road expenses are ridiculous for a five men band. We feel sorry for our fans and friends in States but we had no chance left besides cancellation. We also thank Matt from CIM and Mike from LVDF for their interest. Being a part of both fests would be great since the lineups are amazing! We hope to play in States soon but it seems that’s the not the right time.

"Stay sick and keep supporting CIM and LVDF cause it’s not easy to organize fests like these which contain the sickest bands on the scene."

Carnophage still has the following upcoming European tour dates:

4/16 2010 ITÜ Rock Fest Istanbul, TURKIYE
5/1 2010 Karakatliam Metal Performance Ankara, TURKIYE
5/2 2010 Karakatliam Metal Performance Ankara, TURKIYE
6/10 2010 Death Feast Open Air 2010 Hünxe, GERMANY
6/11 2010 Death Feast Open Air 2010 Hünxe, GERMANY
6/12 2010 Death Feast Open Air 2010 Hünxe, GERMANY
