Malevolent Creation Explain Rock The Nations Abscence

MALEVOLENT CREATION issued a statement about missing last weekend's Rock The Nations festival in Istanbul, Turkey. It reads as follows:

"Our apologies go out to the Turkish fans who came to see us perform in Istanbul on July 4th (this past Sunday) at the Rock The Nations Festival only to find out we were not playing. We would have been there, but after providing the promoter with the correct ticket information for all 5 band members more then 3 months ago, no ticket information ever arrived. After many attempts to get the ticket info, it arrives in an e-mail without a ticket for our drummer Dave Culross. With no response from the promoter about getting a ticket for our drummer Dave, we had no choice but to stay where we were. Trapped in a German hotel for 4 days until we could fly home on July 6th. Still have not got an explanation to why this happened but hopefully we can try this again next year because we heard that we missed an amazing festival. To make matters worse our London, England show on June 23rd at the Underworld was also cancelled because mother nature was an angry lady that stormy afternoon. We left for England from France at 1:30 pm on a ferry boat that normally takes 1 1/2 hours across the sea to England. Of course, a brutal rain storm with 70-mile-an-hour winds causes all ports for the ferries to dock to get closed and we are stuck on a ferry for 10 hours before the ferry can dock. (What can i say? We are fucking cursed !!! Believe me, it was no fun watching people vomiting from sea sickness for 10 hours.) Once again sorry to all the fans who showed up at both these shows only to be let down, but sometimes shit happens. We promise to return later this year in support of our new album 'Warkult'. 'Warkult' is out now in Europe and will be released July 27th in North America on Nuclear Blast Records."
