Behemoth Forced To Cancel All Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival Tour Dates

Polish blackened death metal band Behemoth has been forced to pull out of all Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival tour dates due to drummer Inferno going under the knife for an appendix surgery. The group says it will take a few months for him to recover. Head on below for a full comment and explanation from frontman Nergal.

Personally, I’m very bummed about this. Behemoth was one of the biggest reasons I wanted to go to the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival as I’ve never had the opportunity to see them live. Hopefully this can be amended in the near future.

Frontman Nergal comments, “This must have been the most difficult decision we were forced to make in recent years. Behemoth is known for not canceling any shows or tours. But this is not something we can do when we are missing our driving force, the man behind the drums – Inferno. Unfortunately, he was hospitalized due to appendix surgery and it’s gonna take him few months to fully recover and get back to shape. We are trying to save selected European Festivals with a fill in drummer (Krimh, ex-Decapitated), but we won’t be risking doing a full-on prestigious tour like the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival without Inferno. Behemoth is a solid unit and any part of this unit missing makes us weaker, and that is not how we want to present our new material to our fans. Please, accept our apologies and be patient, we shall return to Europe (this fall) and US (early 2014) empowered and motivated as never before!

Behemoth also recently announced that they will be releasing their new studio album, The Satanist, this fall.
