Sacred Reich Cancel European Festival Appearances

Sacred Reich have cancelled several European festival dates due to guitarist Wiley Arnett requiring surgery for a recent injury. The band commented:

“We are sorry that we will not be playing Copenhell, Graspop or Hellfest this year. Wiley has an injury that requires surgery. He will make a full recovery but not in time for these shows. Sorry to disappoint our fans looking forward to seeing us at these great festivals but we hope to see you at one of the shows in the future. Thank you for your understanding. Sacred Reich”

Sacred Reich Cancel More Shows Due To Phil Rind’s “Respiratory Illness”

Sacred Reich have been forced to cancel more shows as Phil Rind continues to recover from a non-COVID-19-related illness. The band are hoping to return to the stage on March 28 in New Orleans, LA.

Rind issued the following statement yesterday (March 23):

“Tour update

Unfortunately due to the ongoing respiratory illness I am experiencing Sacred Reich will not be playing tonight in Greensboro. We are truly sorry.

The nature of my recovery is uncertain. The doctors in the hospital said I have three different viruses along with my asthma and it’s just going to take time. We are committed to finishing the tour. We have all been waiting for too long to give up now. So all we can do is take it day by day.

I feel confident that this will pass and we will rejoin our friends Sepultura, Crowbar and Art of Shock. I just can’t say when.

Thank you all for your love, prayers, well wishes and concern. It is greatly appreciated.

All the best

Peace and love,
Phil, Wiley, Dave & Joey”

The band then shared a new update today (March 24):

“Update

Unfortunately we will not be playing tonight in Atlanta and will be unable to play the shows in Ft. Lauderdale and Tampa this weekend. We apologize to our fans looking forward to these shows. We are very disappointed. We are hoping we can rejoin the tour in New Orleans. Once again our sincerest apologies.

Peace and love, Sacred Reich”

Sacred Reich’s Phil Rind Hospitalized, Two Shows Cancelled

Sacred Reich frontman Phil Rind was recently hospitalized due to a non-COVID-19-related illness. As a result, the band were forced to cancel their shows in Philadelphia, PA and Baltimore, MD.

Rind commented:

“Hi everyone, I have been battling a non-Covid illness since last Sunday in Pittsburgh. I have been doing my best every night because as they say ‘the show must go on’ even though my asthma has been getting progressively worse.

I went to the hospital this morning in Philadelphia and have been admitted. As a result Sacred Reich will not be performing tonight in Philadelphia or tomorrow night in Baltimore on the Quadra Tour with Sepultura, Crowbar and Art Of Shock.

We are very disappointed to let you down. It sucks.

Have a great time at the shows and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Peace and love, Phil & Sacred Reich”

Hellfest organizers commented:

“Hellbangers,

What can we say except that we are proud (and excited) to finally unveil the long-awaited line up of our anniversary edition! Keeping such a line up as a secret for several weeks has been no easy task, especially in the last few days…

It’s been more than 16 months since our work rhythm was turned upside down by the arrival of this virus, since the live music industry was extinguished. Despite this, our confidence has never been affected and we have kept working with a positive mindset.

The frustration of two years without a festival has led us to dream even bigger about our reunion! In 2022, we are offering a new and unique format spread over 10 days! Never done before, this formula will, without a doubt, remain in the history of so-called “extreme” music! Twice as historic, because this formula is meant to exist only in 2022 and will not happen again in the years to come.

After a first weekend from 17 to 19th June 2022, we double the fun with an additional weekend from 23rd to 26th June! A real marathon that will see no less than 350 artists on 6 stages!

As usual, the festival does not deviate from its principles: you will see artists capable of performing in stadiums, with artists who are usually playing in smaller venues, and for some even in pub caves. Punk, Heavy, Black, Hardcore, Death, Stoner, Pagan, Power, we have done our best to put together what we believe to be the “edition of the century”.

No need to list the program in detail as you are not, and for the second year, headbanging at the festival right now. You can find out all this by yourself, at home or with your friends, enjoying our virtual edition “Hellfest From Home“! (More information over here : fromhome.hellfest.fr)

This exceptional edition is also an opportunity for us to thank the pass holders who have been waiting for more than 2 years. Your loyalty and trust have kept us going and we do not have enough words to thank you. It seemed fair to us that you should access the ticket sale 24 hours before the public sale in order for you to obtain your ticket for sure.

We are aware that some of you, for professional, family or simply financial reasons, will not be able to attend this XXL edition. By going through (and only through!) our partner TICKETSWAP (please stop Viagogo and others…), you will be able to resell your pass for the weekend you are the least interested in, and thus make one more happy fan!

For all the others who will have the chance to live these 10 days of anthology with us, we promise that you will remember our reunion! As a bonus, we might even make you a nice “FINISHER” t-shirt so that this moment will remain engraved forever in your memories. Once in a lifetime celebration!

Last but not least, we could not finish without thanking all those who have supported us during these last months. Volunteers, intermittents, sponsors, service providers, media partners, people from Clisson, we are all eager to see you again and to live with you this future adventure, which promises to be historic!

Stay Strong. Stay Safe.

Sepultura To Release “SepulQuarta” Album In August

Sepultura will be releasing a new compilation album titled “SepulQuarta” on August 13. The effort will feature various quarantine performances that were recorded for their series of the same name. Andreas Kisser commented:

“‘SepulQuarta‘ was born at the very beginning of the pandemic when everything was halted. We had a new album out, but we couldn’t tour for it.

SepulQuarta kept us alive and strong throughout one of the most difficult times in human history.”
