Late last year we announced the Heavy Blog sponsored Canadian Throes of Existence Tour featuring 7 Horns 7 Eyes and Annex Theory. With the tour a month away, the band have cancelled their appearance. Here’s the press release announcing the change in the tour’s lineup:
Due to unforeseen issues concerning 7 HORNS 7 EYES internally, the band has made the decision to pull out of its tour with ANNEX THEORY this February. In spite of steps taken to try to alleviate these issues, the band will be unable to take part in the tour. However, the tour itself is not canceled and ANNEX THEORY will press on its own.
Comments guitarist Aaron Smith:
“This is certainly not the outcome we had in mind when we announced our participation in this tour, and it’s really a bummer to let everyone down who had made plans to come see 7H7E play and to the promoters of the shows as well. There are several factors in our decision to cancel, including unforeseen financial strain, and it was not a decision we made quickly or lightly, but it’s definitely the best decision. We fully intend and look forward to rescheduling a similar run of dates in the future (we hope with Annex Theory), so that we can make it up to our Canadian fans! We will not forget!”
7 HORNS 7 EYES released its debut album, “Throes of Absolution” on April 24 via Century Media Records in North America. The record features artwork by Travis Smith (OPETH, NEVERMORE) and a guest appearance by former NEVERMORE guitarist Jeff Loomis.
ANNEX THEORY’s latest EP, “Process Existence” was self-released last May. The effort was mixed and mastered by Travis Montgomery of THREAT SIGNAL and features a cover of the RUSH classic “Subdivisions.”
