Posted by on March 15, 2020

According to Author & Punisher’s latest statement on Facebook, it looks like Tristan Shone’s industrial doom project will have to miss his European tour with Igorrr due to the coronavirus pandemic. The artist expressed how the last three Tool shows were cancelled as he will now spend this time to focus on creating new music.


“As you all know my last 3 @toolmusic concerts were cancelled and I am not able to make it to Europe either. What an experience. I learned so much from the Tool band members, crew, management and the experience was unreal. I wish it could have ended under better circumstances but hey, it’s doom metal and that’s that. I’ll be working on some new gear and a new album. Stay safe and vote for Bernie you fascists!”
