Carcass remplacera Morbid Angel au Brutal Assault
Il y a peu, les américains de Morbid Angel avaient annoncé l'annulation de leur tournée européenne à cause d'un problème de passeport. L'une de ses dates était leur apparition à l'édition 2017 du Brutal Assault. Leur explication est ci-dessous :
"World Management and Morbid Angel would like to announce that due to unfortunate and last minute, unforeseen problems with a passport for one of the members of the band, as a result the Summer Festival dates slated for late July and August will have to be cancelled. In well over 30 years we have never had an incident like this, nor have we ever cancelled shows in our past. We have been advised by The US State Department / Passport Agency that a new passport will not be forthcoming in time for any of the upcoming festivals. Morbid Angel are extremely unhappy about this loss of shows and want to apologize to all the Fans, Promoters, and Vendors in Europe! We are working to have this issue remedied for the future and are looking forward to coming back to Europe and playing for all of our fans in November!!!"
Pour remplacer le groupe, le festival a choisi nul autre que les anglais de Carcass. Voici le communiqué officiel :
"We are excited we were able to get first class replacement of the dropped out Morbid Angel with their Earache gold era labelmates Carcass! We always try to find the best possible replacement, because lineup is number one priority."
Le festival se déroulera du 09 au 12 août à Josefov en Tchéquie.
