HATEBREED Forced To Miss First Three Shows Of MACHINE HEAD Tour

Machine Head

Connecticut hardcore/metal masters HATEBREED will miss the first three shows of "The Black Procession" tour with MACHINE HEAD and BLEEDING THROUGH due to the fact that the band's frontman, Jamey Jasta, has been taken ill. The affected shows (Stuttgart, Offenbach and Hamburg) will be made up around HATEBREED's April 23 headlining appearance at the Groezrock festival in in Meerhout, Belgium.

Commented Jasta: "I feel terrible to have to miss these first three shows but I need this time to heal up to make sure I will be 100%."

They will be replaced at those dates by Germany's CALIBAN.

Affected dates:
Jan. 23 - Stuttgart, GER @ Schleyerhalle
Jan. 25 - Wiesbaden, GER @ Schlachthof
Jan. 26 - Hamburg, GER @ Grosse Freiheit

The new self-titled album from HATEBREED sold 15,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 37 on The Billboard 200 chart.
