Sadly, In Flames had to pull out of the tour, which was originally scheduled to take place last year before the pandemic derailed live events around the world, due to international visa issues. In their place, Hatebreed, who released their The weight of the fake me last year, will now open every evening of the North American trek.
Dave Mustaine from Megadeth commented, “Can you hear that sound of marching armies – destruction on the horizon? It’s this tour that’s coming for you. We can’t wait to get back on stage and I promise you will don’t want to miss these shows. You won’t know what hit you! “
“It’s been far too long since we got together to do our thing – by ‘we’ I mean groups, road crews, bus drivers, truck drivers, local staff, vendors. , the public, the parking lot guards, the creepy janitors – fucking enchilada. ALL OF US. TOGETHER, ”added Randy Blythe, frontman of Lamb of God.
“Everyone was waiting,” he continued, “but now is the time to piece the puzzle together. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been more ready to hit the road with Lamb of God. A few months with Megadeth, Trivium, and now Hatebreed. Over a year without live music? These gigs are going to be INSANE … “
Meanwhile, in an article on social media (see below), In Flames explained, “In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we had to make the difficult decision not to join the Metal Tour of The Year. We were eager to play for all of you and it was an incredibly difficult choice to make. Thank you for your understanding and support as we all go through this unprecedented time. We have a lot going on for 2022 – more on that shortly. safety and see you on the road again soon! “
