We will be offering refunds from the point of purchase.”

“This streaming stuff is so much fun we’re gonna do it again!

Join us December 5th as we present an encore presentation of our Live at the Black Cat 2020 isolation concert (with a few surprises) along with a totally new live set from our good friends in Misery Signals!

Our last digital event raised over $6000.00 for our favorite live venue in DC, The Black Cat! THANK YOU!

The remaining proceeds from THESE ticket sales will go to benefit clubs all over the world who have been effected by our tour cancelations.

If you purchased one of our bundles from the last concert the records and T-shirts are on their way to you, they are coming from separate places, but never fear we will always make sure you’re taken care of. We’ve unleash some new merchandise bundles to keep things fun but we’d really love to just see you in the chat and at the zoom after party which will be available to all ticket holders (and include band members and guests)!

Our first ever Live Stream was a total success and a lot of fun, guess we will see you in the digital pit again!”

Misery Signals commented as well:

“Due to complications from the continuing COVID-19 pandemic we’re deeply disappointed to have to cancel the rest of our tour dates for 2020, including our US tour with friends @darkest_hour_official. Refunds can be requested from your point of purchase.

We are however very pleased that Darkest Hour have found a way for us to still pull off a live show with them this year… The live stream event will include full sets from BOTH BANDS, December 5th, 2020 (6:30 PM PST / 9:30 PM EST) via https://darkesthour.veeps.com/ – there will be a 24 hour on demand replay available directly after the show for all VEEPS ticket holders. So if you cant make it at the exact time of the stream you can always stream it for the following 24 hours! Our set is a brand new live show recorded exclusively for this event. We will also be participating in a live chat during the streaming event and on the live Zoom after party (directly after the show) which will be free to all ticket holders.

In addition to the live tickets we have 2 special bundles available including an exclusive Live: In Isolation Tee designed by @stuartdouglasross, and a limited to 150 Live Event Exclusive Vinyl variant color of Ultraviolet, “Purple Clouds.” As well as a special co-band Tee design.

Devastation On The Nation Tour Featuring Rotting Christ, Borknagar, Etc. Officially Cancelled

The Devastation On The Nation Tour, which was supposed to feature Rotting Christ, Borknagar, Wolfheart, Abigail Williams, and Imperial Triumphant, has officially been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This news comes after the trek was previously postponed to 2021.

The following statement was posted on September 25:

“There is no easy way to put this. Devastation on the Nation Tour 2021 is canceled.

When we rescheduled the tour we thought that in a year everything would be okay again, but it still is not and we have no clear picture of what the future holds. More and more venues are closing down every month. This virus (COVID-19) has ruined everything for so many bands, musicians, and venues.

Even if the tour were to still happen in February/March of 2021, how many more venues will be closed down? What will the capacity restrictions be for each show? How will 3 out of 5 bands from a different country survive here IF the borders reopen? It’s impossible to know and at this point there is no light at the end of the tunnel. We will not reschedule again until we 100% know that it will be possible for the tour to happen and that the bands from outside of the US are able to come here.

All tickets purchased will be refunded. If you purchased tickets via https://www.metalfestivaltours.com/devastationonthenation, we will have those tickets refunded right away. If you purchased tickets NOT on this website, please find your email and email the company that you purchased them through for a refund.

We thank you all for the support and we will be back one day.

Aside from this, I will be doing an AMA today starting at 3pm EST/2pm CST/12pm PST via my Twitch channel. Speaking about DOTN, touring, marketing, listening to your bands music, and much more. If you’d like to join this, it is free! I’d like to talk to you all. I know this a very rough time for everyone but we’re all trying to stay positive.”

Monster Magnet Officially Cancel “A Celebration Of Powertrip” North American Tour

Monster Magnet have officially cancelled their “A Celebration Of Powertrip” North American tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. This news comes after the trek was previously postponed until early next year. The band issued the following statement:

“Unfortunately, due to ongoing covid concerns and continued restrictions we are canceling our January/February 2021 USA tour. Holding your money and moving the tour for a second time hoping to be open where we move it to does not seem logical or fair at this point. We would prefer you all had the money back in your pockets and we hope to rebook this at a more appropriate time for all. Please get refunds at point of purchase.”

Guns N’ Roses have officially cancelled their South American tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. That trek was supposed to take place in November/December.

However, the safety and well-being of our fans, team and community remains our highest priority. These tour dates will not be rescheduled at this time due to the current impact of COVID-19 around the world.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. We are working on putting together a new Latin/South American tour. Please hang in there for further details once dates are locked in.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra Cancel Fall 2020 Tour

Trans-Siberian Orchestra have officially cancelled their fall 2020 tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The group will return to the stage when it’s safe to do so.

The following statement was issued:

“Dear TSO Fans,

We waited as long as we could, hoping for months, that we would not have to make this sad announcement. Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to tour this holiday season. While all of us in TSO wanted to be able to hit the road this November, in the interest of public health and safety, we regrettably cannot move forward. The well-being of our fans, our crew, and of venue staff is of the utmost importance to us and, with that in mind, we must forgo touring during this pandemic.

In a normal autumn, gearing up for tour, loading up the trucks, and making our way to rehearsal is the highlight of our year. It means that shortly thereafter, we are going to be in your city and doing what we love most, playing live for you.

When we can all safely be together, we look forward to seeing you all again on tour. We hope you are all taking the necessary precautions to keep healthy.

We thank you for your ongoing support of TSO.

Be good and love one another.”

Brutus Cancel UK Tour

Brutus have officially cancelled their UK tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. This news comes after the trek was previously postponed for September.

The band issued the following statement:

“Unfortunately we have to cancel our UK shows in London, Bristol and Leeds for good. They where originally scheduled for May and rescheduled to September. All tickets will be refunded directly by the ticket agents as soon as possible.

Just like everyone else, we started this no-show situation with the hope that this would be over soon. By now it’s pretty clear this will not be the case at all and we are trying to adjust to that feeling. In our calendars, in our heads, in our family, emotionally and financially.

Since day one of Brutus we have been playing live shows non stop. It’s why we do this. But right now, somebody has hit a big pauze button. And even if that break might look like “the perfect time to write”, “be creative” or “to get ready for when it starts again” … this feels more like a coma and not a break. It’s a shock, a moment of feeling lost. We try to reflect and adjust but we have no idea what the impact will be in the long run.

Our first (re)confirmed shows are scheduled for 2021, but even then it’s impossible to know if that’s even realistic. In the meantime we are writing new music, trying to find our way in this. But this is not the perfect time to write. It would have been the perfect time to play live.
🙂
Try to take care of yourself. Try to find your way, any way is cool.

We miss you and playing live a lot.
X”

“Hey everyone, unfortunately due to the ongoing restrictions imposed by COVID, we have no choice but to cancel our upcoming EU tour dates that were scheduled for Sept. Ticket holders should contact their point of purchase for refunds.

Whilst we are frustrated to have not been able to play live for you this year, it has allowed us to focus on releasing some new new music. On Sat Aug 29th, as part of Record Store Day, we will be releasing a limited edition vinyl of the session with did at Maida Vale Studios for our friends at the BBC Radio One Rock Show last year. Titled ‘Not Fit For Broadcast- Live At The BBC’, it will be available exclusively on vinyl that day and will feature all the songs we recorded for that session (including one that’s not been aired).

Additionally, we have also be working on more new music that we are incredibly excited about and will have more info on that really soon. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy!”

Meshuggah Cancel Summer 2021 Touring, Plan To Finish New Album

Meshuggah have decided to cancel their summer 2021 touring plans. The band will be using the time to finish their new album, which has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The group said the following:

“As previously communicated our intent was to keep our commitment to all festivals and shows planned for summer 2020, that couldn’t take place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, by re-confirming them for the same dates in summer 2021. Full Force Festival is one of these festivals that has already been re-confirmed and re-announced.

However, after seeing some of the other festivals move to completely different weekends in 2021, we eventually found it impossible to go ahead with the tour next summer due to logistical reasons. Which also means that Meshuggah have to cancel their planned appearance at Full Force 2021.

Another influential part of the decision to not tour in summer 2021 is that Covid-19 restrictions have also affected Meshuggah‘s progress with a new studio album, to a point where we now see the need to keep summer 2021 clear to put finishing touches to the album.

Meshuggah and their management would like to apologize to all fans and promoters being affected by this.

Some good news is to be found in here though: there is a new Meshuggah album coming…”
