The Gates Of Slumber Cancels Roadburn Festival Appearance

Bassist Jason McCash of The Gates of Slumber has issued the following announcement about the band canceling their Roadburn appearance:

"With an extremely heavy heart, it saddens me to report that TGoS will not be able to make it to Roadburn on Saturday due to the volcano eruption in Iceland. We tried everything in our powers to try and make a flight that would get us there in time, even looking at flights to Poland, Czeck Republic, France and Germany but nothing was a go in time.

"As of right now, we have flights that will let us make our first date of our Mainland Euro tour which starts the day after Roadburn but this still depends on what happens over the next 36 hours and if they keep canceling flights into Europe or not. Again, We are extremely sorry for this as this is completely 100% out of our control but with any kind of luck, Roadburn will be the only cancellation of this tour. Please keep watching this space for further updates on what takes place."

Kinda funny I just watched a History Channel special on an British flight that passed thru volcanic ash and barely made it out alive after all four engines failed twice. Sucks that they wont be there b/c they absolutely slay, but better safe than sorry...

Hopefully they can make the england flight now that the ban is lifting. The new Cathedral is great and that is going to be a great opportunity for my bros in the TGOS to tour with them.
