Terra Incognita show cancelled?

I was just on the site and saw it said the show was cancelled.  Is there any reason for this?  This might have ruined my day

Well it says Beardfish have pulled out of the festival for personal reasons, and Agents of Mercy are stepping in as a replacement. The festival itself is still on.

This, and the earlier statement by Rikard last year :

The new album will not be released during 2010. Yes, it's now a fact (one which I am sad to be the messenger of) that the album will not be ready in time for a 2010, and even more so a september release. The reasons for this are many and I don't wanna go in to details, because.. well I just don't!

Don't look very positive if you ask me sad
Only the guys in the band know...
Rikard, if you have the time, please tell us a bit more!

Re: Terra Incognita show cancelled?

Hi guys,

I found myself in a situation a bit over a month ago where the future was very uncertain and I just had to cancel Terra Incognita because I didn't know if I was gonna be able to go there. I don't want to go in to details more than that because this thing involves my personal life and I just don't want to be THAT open about it.. although it's not concerning my health or any of the other guys, it was just a very unstable situation that has now come to a halt. I'm on my way back, and had we still had a spot on the bill we would have come to Canada to play, but Terra Incognita had to find a replacement for us. We'll go to Canada eventually, I promise! The new album is coming out in the end of March and we're all very excited about it. We have some plans for a tour this year and we're really gonna try to make that happen!

Later - Rikard Sjöblom

Re: Terra Incognita show cancelled?

Strange thing. Rikard, are your Gungfly lyrics autobiographical?
In you new song Lamentation you actually sing:

We've been through a lot and we all look tired
Our eyes reflect misfortunes beyond our control
Well I'm not gonna bore you with details
No extensive layouts on how this was gonna be our year
Not a word about how everything got cancelled
I just pretend that I have silently accepted

Love the song by the way!

Yes they are, almost all of my lyrics are autobiographical - at least the good ones wink
And thanks!
