HIRAX Pulled From KEEP IT TRUE Warm-Up Show

Los Angeles thrashers HIRAX have been thrown off the billing of the the Keep It True VI warm-up show, dubbed "Metal Knights", set to take place on April 7, 2006 at Sporthalle in Dittigheim, Germany. According to the festival organizers, the entire HIRAX band — with the exception of singer Katon W. De Pena — left the group and cancelled their Japanese tour (as reported by BLABBERMOUTH.NET on November 23). "Also singer Katon is not answering to our mails [for] over one month and so we are forced to cancel HIRAX. We are working on a high-quality replacement at the moment and hope to present them and the last remaining band [later in the month]."

The Keep It True VI festival will be held on April 8, 2006 at Tauberfrankenhalle in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany. Acts scheduled to perform include RIOT, EXCITER, ROSS THE BOSS (performing a set of early MANOWAR), SOLITUDE AETURNUS and PARADOX.
