||According to a posting on the band's MySpace, Zimmers Hole is no longer a part of the upcoming European Tour with Soilwork, as drummer Gene Hoglan has suffered a death in his family.
"From our hearts, we send Gene and the entire Hoglan family all of our love, and deepest condolences at this difficult time. The Hoglan family is the "first family of metal", and we are all deeply saddened.", commented the band.
Also, bassist Byron Stroud is nursing a broken hand. The band adds: "Byron is not only our bassist, his duties also include band manager and road manager. He is vital to us. While Byron's injury was untimely, he felt he could be ready in time for the tour. With the sad news from the Hoglan family, there was no way we could do this and be focused in any way.
Apologies go out to all of our European fans and agents. We'll miss you. We ask for your understanding at a very tough time for all of us."
