Ex Deo Drops Off North American PaganFest
Band Photo: Alestorm (?)
Battle metallers Turisas will be heading back to North America this spring for "PaganFest: America Part III," their first-ever U.S. headlining run. Joining the Finnish sextet on their triumphant return to the States is a gathering of bands from across the world: Scotland's Alestorm, Russia's Arkona, and U.S. act Huntress. Ex Deo has now dropped-off the tour, and in regards to the band's departure from PaganFest, Maurizio Iacono comments:
"It is with deep disappointment that I am obliged to pull EX DEO off this year's PaganFest. We were all excited to play this festival and premier some new material, but unfortunately our new album 'Caligvla' has been delayed, and we need to finish it and make it perfect. Add to that, the Kataklsym DVD is also on its final production phase...We decided it would be best to concentrate on giving every bit of attention to the album you have been waiting for, and also for the Kataklysm documentary to kick major ass.
"This being said, we will still perform with EX DEO on the Montreal & Toronto shows with PaganFest, as we will be in studio in the area, closing up the album 'Caligvla'. Everything else is cancelled for EX DEO. We will return to support the album in the fall...
"Word from Rome is that the plans are already in motion for world conquest! We ask our fans to support PaganFest and the great bands playing this year!"
