King Dude Drop Off Taake Tour Following Antifa Controversy
Taake’s upcoming North American tour has suffered another blow. After the band had at least one show cancelled due to protests from Antifa (accusations of Nazism and Islamophobia have long followed the black metallers), support act King Dude has announced he won’t be part of the trek:
“For reasons out of my control, and frankly out of my realm of understanding, I will be removing myself from the tour with Taake. It must be made clear that I am a Luciferian and do not preach hate, nor would I endorse a setting that allows hate to happen. I believe in both personal and spiritual growth as well as the spread of knowledge beyond all sacrifice and at all costs. The banner under which people enter a King Dude concert must be welcoming to all people of all walks of life, race, religion, gender etc. This should go without saying as this has always been the way I have conducted my concerts and I’m not sure why it should change for this tour. I absolutely do not welcome political discourse at my concerts as it has no place there. My concerts are a place that should be a sanctuary for everyone, a place for people to find church without having to go to one.
“Stay tuned here for updates regarding make up shows to all of you. Thanks again for your continued support.
“With the Light and Love of Lucifer,
“- King Dude”
I don’t think anyone should be shocked if this whole tour winds up being cancelled.
More news as we get it.
