IHSAHN Replaces ARCTURUS At PROGPOWER USA XII Festival

Former EMPEROR frontman Ihsahn has been confirmed to replace ARCTURUS at ProgPower USA XII, the annual progressive and power metal festival held in Atlanta, Georgia.

ARCTURUS has issued the following statement regarding its cancellation: "ARCTURUS still suffer from hibernation sickness, and due to outdated parts we deeply regret to inform you: We are canceling ProgPower USA. This lack of maintenance is entirely our own fault, and sincere apologies go out to the promoter and all ticket holders, especially those of you who had planned to travel far."

ProgPower USA promoter Glenn Harveston adds: "I have no idea what the hell that statement means. I'm not going to try and figure it out either, as I have wasted enough time and effort on that 'band' already. In the meantime, I would like to personally thank Ihsahn for taking the slot. His professionalism in this situation is greatly appreciated."
