Despite previous reports to the contrary, Crash Music recording artists BRICK BATH will NOT be playing at the Las Vegas Metalfest. "The promoter of the show has admitted to not being able to pay [the band] their guarantee to perform or acknowledge the band's rider. [He] sent an email asking if the band was interested in playing the festival a couple of months ago and we said yes. This was the last contact we had with the promoter until we saw the press releases start to pop up on a bunch of metal websites, which included BRICK BATH in the lineup. BRICK BATH and their management didn't even know what day they were supposed to play the festival and were not notified until now.

"BRICK BATH apologizes to any fans that purchased tickets for the festival to see them. They hope to play Las Vegas again possibly in the fall."

The first annual Las Vegas Metalfest is set to take place Aug. 29-31 at The Huntridge Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada. Among the artists confirmed to appear at the event are DEICIDE, SUFFOCATION, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, CATTLE DECAPITATION and MONSTROSITY.
