Arsis pulls out of Carcass tour due to internal band bullshit
Arsis drummer, David Kinkade, has issued the following update:
"I regret to inform everyone that ARSIS will NOT be on the CARCASS tour scheduled to kick off in Philadelphia on the 13th of March. This is due to situations in ARSIS that are out of my hands.
"I do not feel that it is my place to go into specific reasons and/or details leading up to this decision, but being the drummer of ARSIS, it is in my best interest to NOT keep the fans in the dark. There are major personal and communication issues in this band that need be resolved before anything can continue as ARSIS. I will leave it at that. Again, my apologies to the fans, the other bands on the bill and everyone who worked so hard to put this together.
"Due to the situation, I am available for session/possible long-term drum work nationally and internationally.
"Those interested can contact me at: Anti_cosmic_drummer@yahoo.com.
"On a positive note, the new BORKNAGAR album is nearing the final completion stages. Having spoken with Řystein [G. Brun; guitar] today, I am told that vocals and synths are well under way and we will all be meeting in Oslo at the end of April for the final mixing and mastering. So far, drums and guitars are finished and let me be the first to say that this album is going to be immense. By far the most brilliant material that BORKNAGAR has ever written, this work is going to have all the 'meat 'n' potatoes" musically and production-wise. I trust that all the fans will enjoy this effort."
