Reactivated Boston-based hardcore/punk band BLOOD FOR BLOOD has been forced to reschedule this coming weekend's "Wasted Nights" shows in Boston and New York City.
Guitarist/vocalist Rob Lind and bassist Ian McFarland have issued the following statement:
"We regret to inform you, due to a situation that has arisen involving [vocalist] Buddha, it has become impossible for BLOOD FOR BLOOD to play the shows scheduled for this weekend in Boston and NYC. We'd like to thank and apologize to everyone who brought these shows together, as well as all of the Wasted Youth crew, who were planning on attending. Trust us, this was not something we wanted to do."
Refunds will be available at point of purchase.
BLOOD FOR BLOOD is currently working on its seventh album, the band's first since 2004's "Serenity".
After lying dormant for six years, BLOOD FOR BLOOD made its American return at last year's New England Metal And Hardcore Festival.
BLOOD FOR BLOOD reunited in 2010 for the European Persistence Tour, which also featured SICK OF IT ALL, UNEARTH and EVERGREEN TERRACE.
BLOOD FOR BLOOD 2012 consists of the longtime core of Buddha, guitarist Rob Lind, and bassist Ian McFarland, along with drummer Neal Dike.
Special guests Billy Graziadei (BIOHAZARD) and Craig Silverman (ONLY LIVING WITNESS) have filled in on guitar for live shows in Lind's absence from the stage due to personal reasons.
