Mayhem, Abbath, Gatecreeper, and Idle Hands have officially cancelled their spring tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The following statement was issued:

“In an effort to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous states and cities on the Decibel Magazine Tour routing have announced bans on gatherings in excess of 250 or 500 people (with many more expected to do the same in the coming days). As a result, we have been forced to cancel the Decibel Magazine Tour. Though it pains us to see so many plans disrupted as a result, we must remain committed to ensuring the safety of the bands, their crew, venue staff and, of course, the fans during this time. For ticket refunds, please inquire at point of purchase. Thanks for your understanding and support of Mayhem, Abbath, Gatecreeper, Idle Hands and Decibel.”

Bassist Mia Wallace Says She Was “Forced To Part Ways With Abbath”

Mia Wallace has revealed that she is no longer a member of Abbath’s solo band. The bassist issued a statement saying she was “forced to part ways” with the group.

Wallace said the following:

“It is with sadness I have been forced to part ways with Abbath. It has been a challenging but exhilarating/exciting time and I am proud of my contribution to the Outstrider album, the concerts, the videos for Harvest Pyre and Hecate and the visuals and promotion of the band in general.

For me, being a part of Abbath was a dream come true and I can say with my hand on my heart I have been loyal to the team and to Abbath himself. Everyone can see this from the Argentina concert where I stood on the stage until the bitter end. I have not always agreed with certain other people in the Abbath camp and I have given my opinion honestly without anger or negative intent.

Unfortunately not everyone can take this.

I am disappointed that none of my former colleagues have contacted me in this process except for the five minute phone call from Abbath‘s manager in which I was told I would no longer be needed.

I was told not to contact anyone in the band. The explanation for this had no substance and just made more questions and confusion for me.

Up until then I had been preparing for the European tour as I had been told to do. I had to cancel other plans, and get time off work for the tour which I spent much time preparing for.

I am truly grateful for all the support from the fans, media, everyone at Season of Mist and collaborators of Abbath!

Thank you so much! It means everything to me in this difficult time.

I also wish only the best for Abbath whom I will always admire as an artist and thank him for the opportunity he has given me. Now I shall focus on my next step. Several very interesting new projects are in the works. I promise you have not heard the last of me.

Ciao!

Mia“

Abbath Enters Rehab For Addiction Issues

Abbath (ex-Immortal) has officially entered rehab to deal with his addiction issues. This news follows the frontman’s disastrous November 13 show in Buenos Aires.

Abbath commented:

“Outstriders,

Throughout life you’re dealt different decks of cards. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to live my dream, which is writing music, putting out records and touring the world, playing to fans all over the globe. For the most part it has been a tremendous ride, but there’s also been moments where things have gone wrong. Most notably during the recent tour of South America, where we had to cancel shows in Argentina and Brazil.

It’s no secret that I’ve been battling addiction. I have now come to realize that it’s time to pick a fight with this demon. I’ve committed myself to a rehab program that’s going to help me get clean once and for all. I feel more motivated and determined than ever to win this battle.

Due to my program, we need to cancel the December shows that we have scheduled with my other band, Bömbers. We do apologize to our fans that was looking forward to these shows. We will make it up to all of you, and we’re currently working on rescheduling these shows.

Right now I’m very much looking forward to be coming back clean, stronger and more focused and fired up than ever.

Europe and USA, you have been warned, we’ll hunt you down like a thunderstorm next year. Nothing is going to stop us.

Horns up!
Abbath“

Abbath Cancels Remaining South American Dates

Abbath has cancelled the remaining dates on his South American tour due to “health issues.” This news comes one day after his disastrous show in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The following statement was issued:

“It is with heavy heart that we have to announce the cancellation of the remainder of the Abbath South American Outstrider tour. Due to health issues that need to be treated, we are unable to complete the last shows in Argentina and Brazil. We deeply apologize to all of our fans that wanted to come and see us, to the local promoters, and to Matrix Entertainment who has worked tirelessly in order to make this tour happen. We hope we can make it up to all you some day. We are very sorry.

–Abbath“

Abbath Cuts Buenos Aires Show Short After Two Songs

Abbath ended up cutting his November 13 show in Buenos Aires, Argentina short after a sloppy two-song set. The frontman appeared intoxicated at the concert and was stumbling onstage. On top of that, guitarist Ole André Farstad was rumored to have gotten into a fight with Abbath earlier in the day and he reportedly decided to stay in the hotel instead of showing up for the gig. Fans were angry about the situation and demanded refunds.
