Arcturus - ProgPower USA Show Cancelled


Arcturus has unfortunately cancelled their appearence at ProgPower USA. Ihsahn will replace them.

The band issued the following statement: "Arcturus still suffer from hibernation sickness, and due to outdated parts we deeply regret to inform you: we are canceling Progpower USA.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 seems just as confused by the statement as everyone else: "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."

If they didn't get the statement it only shows they don't actually know the band at all. That statement alone is awesome. Sucks for the people though. If this was a festival I'll be attending I'd surely be pissed right now.

Array, you have to stop posting here in two posts. Everything else ist just not tr00!

The promoter's statement sounded like a big fat Fuck U to Arcturus

Two posts? You mean two words? I don't do that much nowadays.

Still not cool... I would have wanted to read about Arcturus going to studio, but these kind of news sound like the band is still quite fragmented.

Nope, I mean just on more post. Then your post count is 666 and therefore cvlt, tr00 and br00tal.

Oh yeah, thanks for pointing that out. It's good to post the holiest post of 'em all to this topic. Now I can finally die and go Nekro!
Adios!

Woah! There it is.

After reading this, I don't think there is much hope for them right now, bro.

touche but the fact that they at least scheduled a show is a sign. We all know Arcturus are a bunch of goofball retards so the fact that they did not properly prepare to play live again does not surprise me but that doesnt mean they wont eventually.

"hibernation sickness" and "lack of maintenance", that sounds like they couldn't figure things out, couldn't rehearse and need a lot more time to sync schedules and start where they left off. honestly i didn't like Voxtex's contribution to the band...

Ha, that man called it a "band" instead of a band. He looks mad. It's unfortunate about Arcturus not making it to ProgPower USA, but this announcement was humorous.

Epic statement is epic.
They better reunite elsewhere though. Preferably somewhere near me. Music doesn't get much better Arcturus to me.
