Die anstehenden Festivalkonzerte im Sommer 2011 sind abgesagt. Die US-Hardcorer Alesana
arbeiten aktuell an ihrem neuen Album und benötigen dafür mehr Zeit als sie dachten.
Die Festivalveranstalter bemühen sich derzeit um Ersatz.
Ein Auszug aus dem offiziellen Band-Statement:
„hey everyone! we are really hard at work in the studio here in Portland, OR writing and creating our latest story. the songs and artwork are turning out better than we ever could have dreamed. unfortunately, the process is going to carry us into the early days of June which means we will not be able to play the summer festivals abroad this year. it is a bittersweet reality because as much as we love playing for our amazing fans across the Atlantic, we do not want to take any short cuts in regards to our writing and creative process. […] we sincerely apologize to anyone we have let down in making this difficult decision but we hope you understand and respect that making music is why we are alesana. we love you all and can’t wait to see you again!“ – shawn and alesana
