The Man-Eating Tree Vocalist To Miss Upcoming Show, Vocal Duties To Be Handled By Antti Karhu

Vocalist Tuomas Tuominen of Finnish act The Man-Eating Tree has issued the following statement online about missing an upcoming show:

"Our coming Friday's show at Caribia Metal Halloween, Turku, will be performed with some special arrangements in the vocal department. Special arrangements will be necessary, as I am at the moment tied to a situation in my immediate family, which requires no less than my full attention. This makes it impossible for me to travel out of town.

"Obviously for me, it is nerve wrecking to stay behind and miss out already a second opportunity to perform with The Man-Eating Tree before my home town audience and all my closest friends. Afterall, my years with Fall of the Leafe have built a weird sensation into me, an eerie feeling that that Turku is for my musical roots pretty much the equivalent of what Seattle is for grunge. I know I am a sentimental fool but this situation breaks my heart. I have waited so much for the chance to perform in Turku again.

"Nevertheless, the band has taken the decision to do their utmost to pull off the gig despite the circumstances. I hear my good friend Antti Karhu, who has now already for a long time taught me how to sing right, will be bearing the brunt of double tasking as both the guitar player and the vocalist. And I heard rumors he has hired beautiful and talented reinforcements too.

"I get comfort from knowing that even during my absence, the band will deliver, as always."
