DARKEST HOUR Cancel Remainder Of European Tour

DARKEST HOUR have cancelled the rest of our European tour, plus the two weeks with THE CROWN in November. "[Guitarist] Mike [Schleibaum]'s father has been battling cancer for about two years, and Mike has been called home by his family to spend his last days with him," the band write on their web site. "We were looking forward to seeing our friends in Sweden, the UK, and especially Anchorfest. We regret to cancel, but we are planning on coming back for a full European tour in February/March 2004, and we plan to make up all of the dates we will miss.

"We would like to thank Marco and Ivonne for all of their love and support, as our booking agents and friends. We would also like to thank Christof, and especially Martin, our driver, for all of his patience. We send our apologizes to all of the bands, fans, and promoters of this tour, and thank you for your understanding and respect during this difficult time."
