System Divide drops off tour
System Divide has dropped off their tour with Epica et al. Here's the official word:
"It is with great regret we have to announce that System Divide has to drop off our north american tour with EPICA. Miri already had to leave earlier due to a health emergency within the family and things have complicated further so unfortunately I have to make the decision to go back and support my wife and family in these hard times. "We have pushed through as far as possible to make this work and appreciate the support of the fans that came to the shows to see System Divide. It has been an utmost privilege and pleasure to tour with Epica, not only are they great at what they do, they have been amazing people to be on the road with and they deserve everyone's support at the shows and respect. It is with great sadness in our hearts that we have to say bye to them today but hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. Our touring brothers in Insomnium and Alestorm as well, we will all miss you and see you again soon! "We apologise to all the fans/promoters who were looking forward to see the band, we will do our utmost best to come back to north america and play our hearts out for you all as soon as possible. We will utilise the time now to write the best album we possibly can and return in 2013 with a vengeance!"
