Vader have been forced to cancel the upcoming North American tour with Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Goatwhore, and Kataklysm due to an injury suffered by vocalist/guitarist, Peter Wiwczarek, while on tour. The band's manager Mariusz Kmioek has released this official statement:

We are sorry to inform everyone that during Scandinavian tour (October 2004) Peter has suffered from a minor spinal injury (vertebra-related) and will have to undergo a procedure to set things right (1 week at hospital and 2 weeks of rehabilitation). The only possible date to enter the hospital and fix it is in October, so we have decided on not going on our US tour! Our first idea was to schedule the procedure at hospital next year, but it would be big risk for Peter's health.

We'd like to apologize all people - Metal Blade USA, First Row Agency, Cannibal Corpse and their booking agency, Napalm Death and all maniacs - we are very sorry and we'd like to thank everyone for all their hard work in booking and arranging this tour! It's the first cancelled tour in our long (18 years) activity, and it's really a shock for us!

Let's keep our fingers crossed everything will turn out OK.

Yeah, that sucks all around. Beast is a good album. Altho I would rather see them with a different band selection anyway. How about Vader, The Haunted and Testament....? Now that would be a good show.

They should do shows to coincide with the new Star Wars DVD release.
