Suffocation Cancel Summer European Tour
In major bummer news, Suffocation had to cancel their entire European summer tour due to injuries sustained at past shows.
The band say they are still planning on finishing their new album, which will be their first since 2017 and the first record featuring their new vocalist, Ricky Myers.
On Instagram, the band say:
“It is with deep regret that we have to announce the cancellation of our summer June/July 2023 tour scheduled within Europe/U.K.
“As you may know we previously toured Europe last month and during this tour, a few members of the band suffered extreme physical strain resulting in injuries preventing us from returning back to the area less than a month from our previous tour.
“Although it’s never our intention to cancel any tour, the health of our bandmates is key for continuing forward into the rest of the year, and it’s required that these members rest accordingly and recover from their injuries sustained during this tour. The physical strain that touring takes on the bodies of musicians manifests itself in many ways that are out of our control.
“We have a lot in the works for the remainder of the year including writing and completing our new album and we look forward to returning to one of our favorite territories and fans in the EU/UK bringing you Suffocation at full strength, blazing and cranking alongside you all.”
We’re bummed that the death metal powerhouse are cancelling dates, but we can’t wait to see what they can do when they’re back at full force, and we wish them a speedy recovery.
