Several members of the bands commented:

Testament guitarist Eric Peterson:

“We were really on the fence with this decision. But seeing other bands make it through with a few mild cases and other bigger bands just cancelling their entire tours, we felt it is in our best interest to postpone these shows to ’22.”

Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick:

“It gives none of us any pleasure to be the bearers of bad news yet again, but here we are. Although Bay Strikes Back is a top tour package for theaters, the reality is this: It can’t afford to take the risks that top grossing larger venue tours have been taking. The type of disruptions Kiss and other large outdoor venue tours have experienced could cause our shows to be permanently cancelled – a lose/lose for everyone.

The fact that a lower budget tour such as ours is limited to indoor venues with tight backstage space only adds to the risk. It should go without saying that calling off these dates was a ‘last resort’ decision, and everyone involved would much rather this weren’t the case. However, this is the new reality we’re all in. All we can do is hope for everyone’s understanding, which we ask for sincerely.”

Exodus guitarist Gary Holt:

“We are saddened to announce that the Bay Strikes Back tour is being postponed, but the risk of cancelled shows due to positive tests leading to tour personnel being quarantined and isolated is just too great at this time. We want to feel safe, enjoy the tour and be able to hang out with our close friends. The silver lining in this is that Tom Hunting no longer needs chemo and will have more time to work his way back to doing a full tour. He will make his return behind the drums at Aftershock but a full tour requires more preparation, so that is the good part.”

Death Angel vocalist Mark Osegueda:

“Usually when I’m asked to contribute a quote to an announcement it pertains to something I’m extremely excited about. In this case I’m gutted… It pains me to announce that The Bay Strikes Back U.S. Tour is being postpone. No one was looking forward to this more than me. But, on the brighter side of things, the tour is in fact going to happen – just at a later time. And I can assure you that the already ravenous to play live members of Death Angel promise to provide a crushing set during a crushing tour. The Bay WILL Strike Back!”

Drowning Pool, Ill Niño, (hed)p.e., And Evolution Empire Postpone Fall U.S. Tour

Drowning Pool, Ill Niño, (hed)p.e. and Evolution Empire have postponed their fall U.S. tour. The trek is currently being rescheduled for 2022.

The following statement was issued:

“We regret to announce that the Brothers In Arms Tour is being postponed.

The escalating costs, logistics and risk of moving a multi-band tour like Drowning Pool, Ill Nino, HED PE and Evolution Empire from city to city while adhering to ever-changing local mandates and recommendations unfortunately poses too many concerns to be sure we can fulfill the entire tour as planned.

The tour is currently being rescheduled for March/April 2022, and complete details will be announced in the coming days. Please hold onto your tickets, as they will be good for the new dates.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we look forward to seeing you all on the road when we can celebrate twenty years of music and friendship in the safest way possible.

Thank you,

Drowning Pool / Ill Nino / HED PE / Evolution Empire“
