Detroit's WALLS OF JERICHO has issued a statement confirming that it has withdrawn from the upcoming Bound by the Road Tour with DEVILDRIVER, which will be launched February 27 in Modesto, California.Says the band: "We are sorry to have to announce that we will be unable to do our upcoming tour with DEVILDRIVER, NAPALM DEATH, 36 CRAZYFISTS, and INVITRO. We can honestly say that it is a huge disappointment on our end. This has been a tour that we have been extremely excited about and looking forward to for several months and to back out was very tough for us. However our label (Trustkill Records) has decided to pull tour support funding for this tour as they feel finishing our next record is the number one priority. Our management and label both feel that we need to be writing our new record in preparation for a spring recording and with this tour we just don't have enough time to accomplish all things. With that said, the decision has been handed down and we are forced to cancel. However, this will ensure a summer/late summer release for our new as-yet-untitled full-length record which we have been working very hard on as of late and should turn out to be nothing short of incredible. The extra time devoted to this record is going to pay off big time and we should be able to come out with a record we can truly be proud of and excited about. "We would like to apologize to all the bands on this tour for pulling out so late and we would like to also apologize to all the people who were looking forward to seeing us in the next few weeks." Capital Chaos has posted video footage of WALLS OF JERICHO performing the song "And Hope to Die" on November 30, 2007 in Orangevale, California as part of the "Farewell To Allegiance" tour. Also on the bill were BELAY MY LAST, BORN OF OSIRIS, THE WARRIORS and AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK. Watch the clip below.
