NECROPHAGIST, SUFFOCATION, SUICIDE SILENCE Pull Out Of Germany's SUMMER BREEZE Festival

NECROPHAGIST, SUFFOCATION, SUICIDE SILENCE, THE FACELESS and DAATH have cancelled their participation in this year's installment of the Summer Breeze festival, set to take place August 13-15, 2009 in Dinkelsbühl, Germany.

Commented the festival organizers: "DAATH have cancelled all European shows for the month of August, including their Summer Breeze appearance. Secondly, the entire Summer Slaughter tour, of which we have booked the entire billing of SUFFOCATION, SUICIDE SILENCE, NECROPHAGIST and THE FACELESS for the Breeze, has been cancelled."

NECROPHAGIST has issued the following statement regarding the cancellation of the band's appearance at Summer Breeze: "The timeframe in which the festival takes place was blocked to finish up the writing process for our new album, the follow-up to 2004's 'Epitaph'. There won’t be any live activities after this year's Summer Slaughter tour, which will see NECROPHAGIST headline across North America, so that we can fully concentrate on writing and recording later in the year. After the release in 2010, the European continent will be our main focus and we will be hitting all the cities we neglected in the past couple of years. And if everything works out the way we want it to, we will be seeing all of you at Summer Breeze open air next year!"
