California metallers DEVILDRIVER have been forced to cancel their previously announced European tour. The trek, which was scheduled to take place in September/October, is being called off due to "unexpected circumstances, completely out of the control of the band," according to a press release.
The members of DEVILDRIVER would like to stress that they hate canceling anything, and in 20 years of touring the world, they have never scrapped a tour before and are certainly not a band that wants to mess their fans or their promoters around.
The band and the management would like to apologize to all their fans that had already bought tickets for the tour. Those tickets can be refunded at their original point of purchase.
DEVILDRIVER promises that it will make this up to fans and promoters alike when it returns to Europe in 2020 with a show bigger and better than ever before.
Earlier this month, DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara confirmed that the band has completed work on its new album with producer Steve Evetts (EVERY TIME I DIE, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN). The follow-up to 2016's "Trust No One" will be a staggered-release double album, with the first part scheduled to arrive in early 2020.
DEVILDRIVER's full-length collection of outlaw country-gone-metal anthems, "Outlaws 'Til The End", was released in July 2018 via Napalm Records.
