Ne Obliviscaris Vocalist Pulls Out of European Tour, Replacement Named
Australian extreme metal outfit Ne Obliviscaris are headed out for a European tour but they won’t be joined by vocalist Xenoyr, citing personal issues. Black Crown Initiate vocalist James Dorton will step in on vocals. View the band’s full statement below.
“We are sad to say that Xen has unfortunately had to pull out of our European tour which is set to kick off this weekend in Finland due to a personal emergency. Xen has had a lot happening in his life lately and it unfortunately has reached a point where he isn’t in a position with his own health and the things he’s dealing with to be able to tour and perform with NeO at this time.
“After waiting almost 4 years to tour together and perform for everyone again it’s incredibly disappointing for both Xen & the rest of us. But of course the health and wellbeing of our brother comes first above all else.
“We are grateful that @thejamesdorton (incredible vocalist for Black Crown Initiate/The Faceless) has agreed to fill in for us on this tour, and on only a weeks notice has learned the set and flown out to rehearse with us this week in Helsinki.
“The response to our new EXUL has been simply incredible and as challenging a turn of events as this is, we are excited to share these songs with you for the first time in what we feel will be a unique and special tour. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support. See you on tour across Europe May 5-June 7.”
