TRIBE AFTER TRIBE has been forced to cancel its appearance at this year's Wacken Open Air festival, set to take place August 3-5 in Wacken, Germany. Replacing them on the bill will be SUIDAKRA, who will perform on August 5 at 17:00 on the "W:E:T Stage."

TRIBE AFTER TRIBE's official statement regarding the cancellation reads as follows:

"Yesterday, Robbi [Robb vocals, guitars] got a sad call from his family in South Africa. His mom is passing away. I feel so sorry for Robbi and his Mom and express my deepest condolences. We decided to cancel upcoming European shows in August. I am sure TRIBE AFTER TRIBE fans understand that Robbi needs some time to say goodbye. Now it is up to us to support Robbi and his family, who always felt strongly about people, friends, and fans all around the world."
