||3 Inches Of Blood has dropped off the remainder of their tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, Hate Eternal, and Decrepit Birth, and has also cancelled their subsequent Canadian run with Rammer. Here's a statement from the band:
"Unfortunately we've had to drop off the remainder of tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, Hate Eternal, and Decrepit Birth. We will also be missing our Canadian dates, Feb 16-23, with Rammer.
It was not an easy decision to make, but due to the rapidly declining weather in the remaining areas of the tour we have decided that it would be unsafe to continue touring in these conditions. We have had a great time with all of the bands on this tour, so it is especially disappointing to have to cancel our remaining appearances. We are committed to rescheduling our appearances in all the cities we will be missing, but when the weather is warmer and the roads less treacherous. Sorry to disappoint anybody, but we would rather stay safe and live to play another day"
The remaining dates of the Hate Eternal + Decrepit Birth tour are:
08.02.2008 - USA, Lawrence, KS
09.02.2008 - USA, St. Paul, MN
10.02.2008 - USA, Iowa City, IA
12.02.2008 - USA, Sauget, IL
13.02.2008 - USA, Chicago, IL
14.02.2008 - USA, Cleveland, OH
15.02.2008 - USA, Detroit, MI

The Black Dahlia Murder have posted the following update:
"We're sorry to announce that 3 Inches Of Blood and Decrepit Birth have both dropped off the remaining dates of our headlining tour due to bad weather and poor road conditions. Us and Hate Eternal will still be making all the shows along with local support. Our good friends in The Red Chord will be coming out and joining us for the last 4 shows (Sauget, Chicago, Cleveland Detroit). Again these shows are NOT canceled, we will be there every night! Thanks to everyone who's come out to any of the shows for all the support."
