POISONBLACK's management has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET regarding the cancellation of the Finnish and Swedish shows on the group's tour with LACUNA COIL:

"Due to [an] infection of Ville's [Laihiala, ex-SENTENCED] lungs the band was forced to cancel yesterday's [Oct. 26] show [in Tampere, Finland] and [tomorrow's in Stockholm] as well. Gothenburg show [on Oct. 29] might be next appearance if Ville feels 100% again, but POISONBLACK will be back on this tour latest in Berlin on Monday, [October] 30th and feel sad about cancellation. [On] doctor's advice there was no chance [for the band] to [take the] stage in Finland / Sweden."

The group's video the song "Rush" has been posted online at YouTube.com.
