European progressive metal act Arcturus has announced that it has pulled out of the forthcoming ProgPower USA XII festival. The band posted the following statement online;

"Arcturus still suffer from hibernation sickness, and due to outdated parts we deeply regret to inform you: We are canceling ProgPower USA. This lack of maintenance is entirely our own fault, and sincere apologies go out to the promoter and all ticket holders, especially those of you who had planned to travel far."

Festival promoter Glenn Harveston has since announced that Arcturus is being replaced with former Emperor frontman Ihsahn. A statement from Harveston is available below.

"I have no idea what the hell that [Arcturus] statement means. I'm not going to try and figure it out either, as I have wasted enough time and effort on that 'band' already. In the meantime, I would like to personally thank Ihsahn for taking the slot. His professionalism in this situation is greatly appreciated."
