Canadian progressive death metal band INTO ETERNITY have been forced to drop off the AMORPHIS U.S. tour after singer Stu Block and guitarist Rob Doherty were taken ill. A message on the group's official web site reads as follows:
"After the Atlanta show on [March] 25th, where Tim, Troy and Adam played as a three-piece (!),because Stu and Rob were still being treated in the hospital (according to fan-posts on the forum for strep throat),the guys had no other choice but to leave the tour — they are (still) on their way home as we speak. That's all the info I (webmaster Marlies) have right now. Get home safe boys, and get well soon!"
As previously reported, INTO ETERNITY will be teaming up with HATE ETERNAL, KRISIUN, INCANTATION and ALL SHALL PERISH for a U.S. tour beginning in mid-June. A trek with Finnish melodic metallers STRATOVARIUS will follow in September.
