Denial of God were forced to cancel their European tour due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Read statement below:
It is with heavy hearts that we have to inform you that we have to cancel The Hallow Mass Tour which was scheduled to take place in April.
The cancellation is – not surprisingly and at least partially – Corona virus-related, but this is not a cancellation based on paranoia or fear.
There have been unfortunate events within the band these past weeks which have affected everything, but we were planning for the final rehearsals for the tour to take place this and the coming weeks.
Sadly, these rehearsals are not to be.
Two days ago we received the news that Denmark is in a lockdown and all public institutions are closed for minimum two weeks. This unfortunately also includes the place where our rehearsal room is located.
The place is locked up and all electronic keys are deactivated, so we cannot access the room or our equipment, and rehearsals are therefore not possible.
There is now no way we can possibly rehearse our full 80-minute set and bring it to the level that it should be, because in reality we don’t know when the lockdown will be over and there is simply not enough time.
Besides all of this, the last show of the tour has already been cancelled by the promoter and who knows how many more shows this could happen to now as well given the current pandemic situation.
With this tour being the first real tour since 2007, we are gutted to be forced to make this announcement, but unfortunately a wave of maliciously aligning circumstances has made this tour an impossibility.
Our sincere apologies go to all the promoters and to all the ghouls who were looking forward to or even bought tickets for these shows.
Please understand that we did everything to make this happen, but right now the world is in absolute chaos and we have been facing an unprecedented avalanche of unfortunate circumstances.
We hope to reschedule this tour for a better time.
