Long-running Swedish death metallers GRAVE have issued a statement clarifying their decision to cancel their European tour with DEFLESHED. According to a message posted on the band's official web site, "The European tour that was planned for March and April 2003 has been cancelled due to problems with the bookings and scheduling of the tour. With only three weeks to go before the start of the tour, we had not received what was agreed upon in terms of booked and confirmed shows. We feel that in such a situation we will rather wait until we can go on a full European tour and play for all of [the fans] rather than just a few selected countries and shows. We want [the fans] to know that GRAVE really wants to and will tour as soon as we get the opportunity to do a successful tour."GRAVE will return to North America in May/June for a tour with IMMOLATION, GOATWHORE and DECEMBER.
