Yup. They did.
Blackguard has confirmed that they’ve pulled out of the “Killfest 2” tour like George Clooney. Dude must pull out. He has no children we know of, so I am really just assuming here. But yeah — they’re no longer on it.
I don’t see the tour rocking any less, because really, we’ve got Overkill, Belphegor, Diamond Plate, Aborted, and System Divide. And Blackguard have now been replaced by Suidakra, so…the tour’s still worth going to check out, if you ask me.
“Blackguard have pulled off of the previously announced Killfest 2,” Blackguard says in a statement. ”Sorry for everybody who wanted to see Blackguard on that tour!! We will be out with Kittie instead!”
Something tells me someone didn’t want to get blown out by Aborted and Belphegor, and instead wanted to be one of the harder bands on a different tour.
Blackguard were recently revealed as one of the openers on the Kittie tour, with The Agonist and Bonded By Blood.
