BORKNAGAR Cancel European Tour

BORKNAGAR have cancelled their European tour with FINNTROLL, SUSPERIA, SUIDAKRA and WINDIR after they were unable to secure affordable transportation for the duration of the trek.

"The Swedish bus company raised their prices 63% and we tried getting new busses from about all other bus companies in Europe but it seems like every band on the planet is on tour at the same time," drummer Asgeir Mickelson explained via the band's official web site. "Last week we managed to get two buses from an English company but guess what? They both broke down during the weekend. One of them is now standing somewhere in Portugal...

"We're all pissed off about this. Sorry to all the fans and the bands we were supposed to play with, but there was nothing we could do. Aaaaarrrgh!!!!"

Despite the cancellation, BORKNAGAR will go ahead and perform the Norwegian dates as scheduled. They are as follows:

Oct. 23 – Oslo, NOR @ Rock In
Oct. 24 – Bergen, NOR @ Kvarteret
Oct. 25 – Aas, NOR @ Stundentsamfunnet
