REVEREND, featuring former METAL CHURCH/current WAYNE frontman David Wayne, and BYFIST guitarists Davey Lee and Notch Vara, have pulled out of their appearance at Abrasive Rock Fest, which is scheduled to take place in Olympia, Washington on August 3rd. According to drummer Todd Stotz, "last week we were offered a gig opening for JUDAS PRIEST [and BUDGIE] at the Sunken Garden Theater in San Antonio Texas on August 2nd. The venue holds 15,000 and is expected to sell out. This is a rare opportunity for us, one we'll likely never get again. After much thought, debate, and screaming amongst ourselves, we have decided we are going to have to pull out of the Abrasive Rock show on the 3rd. It would be impossible for us to do both shows. This decision was not taken lightly, and I hope this doesn't screw up your plans too much, and we would love to do the show next year."
