BOLT THROWER to play Wacken?

As most of you probably know, BOLT THROWER don’t like to play festivals, but as a lot
of you want to see us playing festivals, we try and play at least one festival a year. After
receiving numerous offers, we now have to choosewhich festival to play next Summer, and
would like you to help us decide. As BT are not financially driven, the fee is pretty irrelevant,
as is whether we play to 1000 people or 100,000. Our main requirement would be to
have our usual merchandise / meet and greet booth, with noprice restrictions.

Wacken Open Air festival have asked us again to play next Summer, and the
date would fit in with the gap in our planned recording and mixing schedule for next year.
A lot of you have asked us to play Wacken over the years, and a lot of you have advised us
not to play it, for various reasons.

So now, we would like you to help us decide by taking part in the following poll.

Poll: Would you like to see Bolt Thrower play the Wacken Open Air festival?

We’d really like to hear your opinions, so please vote…

BRAINSTORM to re-schedule tour!
Dear friends and fans,
as EVERGREY will not have their new album released in time, they can not take part in the planned tour. Due to this fact, we need to re-scedule the dates for the tour that will now happen without EVERGREY. We are already discussing some very interesting special guests but as we are sure you understand, we need some days to come up with new dates and details.

Todde, Andy, Mille and Dieter

Here’s what EVERGREY have to state about the cancellation:
Unfortunately we must infom you that EVERGREY not is able to do the planned tour with BRAINSTORM in March 2008. This is due to the fact that our next album not will be ready in time to be released before the tour. We feel it’s not fair to the fans or to the promoters or to BRAINSTORM to do a tour without the new album out. If the circumstances aren’t the best we shouldn’t do a major tour like this. We are sorry for any problems this may cause but we will be back soon.
