Swedish experimental extreme metal band MESHUGGAH have cancelled their previously announced appearances at Quartfestivalen in Kristiansand, Norway (July 5) and Arvikafestivalen in Arvika, Sweden (July 12) in order to allow guitarist Mårten Hagström and drummer Tomas Haake sufficient time to recover from an unspecified illness and a carpal tunnel syndrome flare-up, respectively. The group's participation in the Summer Breeze festival on August 21 in Abtsgmünd, Germany is not expected to be affected by the cancellations.As previously reported, MESHUGGAH have fulfilled their contractual obligations to Nuclear Blast Records and are currently weighing their label options before recording their next studio album.
