Devil You Know Pull Out of UK and European Dates

Devil You Know

Bad news for Devil You Know fans, unfortunately the band have had to pull out of their support slot on the Machine Head European and UK dates.

The band explain it is due to reasons beyond their control but hope to perform in Europe soon.

It is with much regret that we are forced to announce the cancellation of our upcoming UK and European dates supporting Machine Head due to business issues far beyond our control. We want to personally extend our apologies to the Machine Head guys and their entire camp, and thank them for offering us such a great opportunity. To our fans, the last thing we want to do is let you down and we are devastated that we can’t perform for you all and be part of an amazing tour with one of our favourite bands. As musicians the 5 of us have a job we love to do and we are ready to get onstage and do it, but unfortunately the cancellation of this tour is completely unavoidable despite every attempt by us to make it happen. The business side of this industry is very ugly at times and this is one of those unforeseen instances where the band has to suffer. To put it mildly we are extremely agitated by this situation, right now our hands are tied but we are going to deal with it and forge on! We WILL tour Europe and the UK as soon as we possibly can and make it up to you all.

Martin Walkyier cordially invites you to his Viking Funeral

In 1990 a new genre of Metal was birthed in the North of England when Martin Walkyier, still reeling from the collapse of seminal Thrash band, Sabbat, got together with former members of Pariah to form Skyclad. The album spawned by this partnership, The Wayward Sons Of Mother Earth, was a truly original piece of Metal, the likes of which had never been heard before.  That was followed by seminal albums like A Burnt Offering For The Bone Idol, Oui Avant-Garde A Chance, The Silent Whales Of Lunar Sea and Folkemon.

Of course all good things must come to an end, and Skyclad, too, went the way of all things. Backed by Italian Folk Metal giants Elvenking, Martin has decided to call time on his legacy with that band.  The Viking Funeral promises to give the songs that created a whole new genre a send off that will rival the fires of Ragnarök in its splendour and majesty.

For the first two nights of the tour, Martin will be supported by Nottingham bruisers Ravens Creed, featuring Bull Riff Stampede bassist, Rod Boston and Jay Graham (ex-Skyclad), German Thrash titans Exumer, the band that are the true inheritors of the Venom legacy, M:Pire Of Evil and Elvenking themselves.

Also on the tour are Scottish Black Metal masters Cnoc An Tursa and Norderobring and Celtic Folk Metal standard bearers, Waylander and Celtachor.

Tickets available from: www.ticketweb.co.uk for London and Birmingham, www.ticketmaster.ie for Dublin and www.tickets-scotland.com for Glasgow.

Italian rockers Elvenking will be bringing their latest album, and unique take on folk influenced metal, to the UK (and Ireland) with Martin Walkyier early next month. Pushing the “Era” release, which came out through AFM Records on the 17th of September last year, the band are now boosted live by new members Jakob and Symohn, who will be making their UK live debut.

This is by no means the first time UK fans will remember the band playing with Martin; the band appeared at the Bloodstock Festival with Skyclad as far back as 2002, but it’s another great chance for the guys to bring their definitive music and new record to UK audiences…
