De Australische progressieve metalband Ne Obliviscaris moet het op de aankomende tour door Europa doen zonder zanger Marc “Xenoyr” Campbell, hij zal worden vervangen door James Dorton van Black Crown Initiate.
We are sad to say that Xen has unfortunately had to pull out of our European tour which is set to kick off this weekend in Finland due to a personal emergency. Xen has had a lot happening in his life lately and it unfortunately has reached a point where he isn’t in a position with his own health and the things he’s dealing with to be able to tour and perform with NeO at this time.
After waiting almost 4 years to tour together and perform for everyone again it’s incredibly disappointing for both Xen & the rest of us. But of course the health and wellbeing of our brother comes first above all else.
We are grateful that James Dorton (incredible vocalist for Black Crown Initiate/The Faceless) has agreed to fill in for us on this tour, and on only a weeks notice has learned the set and flown out to rehearse with us this week in Helsinki.
The response to our new Exul has been simply incredible and as challenging a turn of events as this is, we are excited to share these songs with you for the first time in what we feel will be a unique and special tour. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support. See you on tour across Europe May 5-June 7.Ne Obliviscaris
James Dorton zelft zegt het volgende over deze kans:
Although not under the best of circumstances, I’m stoked to say that I have met up with Ne Obliviscaris in Finland, and will be filling in for Xenoyr on this European headliner.
This last week was an absolute whirlwind, with the last minute-ness of the arrangements and learning their set. But I am all too thankful that they’ve placed their trust in me to do so, knowing that can’t have been easy. To the European fans – I’m excited to bring a variation on the music you’ve come to love.
This wasn’t an easy decision for Xen, or an easy situation for the band – so please show these guys your love and support.
I’m very much looking forward to tearing it up with these guys in Europe. See you out there 🤘James Dorton – Black Crown Initiate
De band staat op 14 mei met Persefone en Asymmetric Universe in Antwerpen (BE) en met Persefone en The Omnific op 20 mei in Gebr. de Nobel in Leiden (NL).
