Suicide Silence addresses DEP's tour cancellation

Countering recent rumors, Suicide Silence has commented on Dillinger Escape Plan's exit from the band's upcoming "Cleansing The Nation" headline tour. Vocalist Mitch Lucker explains: "It's time to move forward and hit the road once again this October. Although we originally had the Dillinger Escape Plan onboard for this fall tour, they've recently dropped off and will not be a part of the package. Just to clarify any rumors floating around, their cancellation had nothing to do with tour politics, band drama or musical tastes. It simply couldn't work out for them this time around and we hope to team up with those guys in the near future. As far as the final 'Cleansing the Nation' line-up is concerned, we're very happy with how it turned out and we'll see you all on the road soon!"
