PRIMAL FEAR drummer Klaus Sperling has issued a statement regarding his decision to sit out the group's upcoming The 2003 Metal Gods Tour, also featuring HALFORD, co-headliners TESTAMENT, IMMORTAL, CARNAL FORGE, PAINMUSEUM, and AMON AMARTH."Hi fans & friends, I'm really sorry, that I can't be a part of the touring line up of the US & Canada tour of PRIMAL FEAR due to private problems," he wrote. "Of course, I will stay an active bandmember and I will give a 150% in the future for PRIMAL FEAR's success and music. The guys found a great replacement for the tour in Randy Black [ANNIHILATOR] and I'm sure they will kill on this tour. On the next tour I will be back behind my drums!"
