SKYCLAD have cancelled their appearance at this year's Milwaukee Metalfest, which is scheduled to be held on July 26th and 27th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. According to the band, "the original idea behind doing this gig was to use it as a promotional visit (for mags etc.) and to possibly add a few more shows around the festival date. While there have been some developments in these areas, the band feel that at the present time (i.e. 'peak season') a trip to the States to do just one show is not really viable."On a more positive note, we would like to add that this decision has been taken with the full agreement of the Metalfest organisers (who were, after all, footing the bill), so much so that SKYCLAD are hoping to reschedule this gig and play the Metalfest in New Jersey, March 2003, along with a few more shows to promote the next album, of which recording commences in August."
