Canadian melodic death metallers Laika have issued a statement regarding last month's ill-fated Laikaruptour 2012 with tech deathers Abhorupt, which saw the band stranded outside Vancouver, BC for several days due to vehicle issues. Vocalist Jordan Dorge comments:

"We are back safe and sound from tour, it was a rocky one but we kept our spirits up. First we would like to thank all the promoters, bands and fans for making this tour possible. We unfortunately only got to complete 3 of the 8 shows we had booked out west. Our van broke down 3 hours outside of Vancouver. We were super crushed as we were looking forward to hitting Vancouver again and the rest of the dates.

We got it towed to a nearby town and they helped us get to Kamloops where we waited for the van to get fixed up. Other than the blown transmission we had a successful tour, showed fans a little taste of new material and got our new guitarist worked into the tour life. We are already making plans as your reading this to make up for the lost dates, so stay tuned. See the tour video below to witness the journey we had!"

Check out that Laikaruptour 2012 video below. Back at home, Laika is preparing to hit the studio with engineer Ryan Forsyth to record the long overdue follow up to 2010's "Crafting the Cataclysm." To help fund the album, entitled "Somnia," Laika has launched an IndieGoGo campaign, which you can go to at this location.
