Too bad, we were ready to perform, but when the weather proved too much to handle you just can’t do anything. We’d love to come back though. In a couple of days we’re heading to Germany to play at the Rock Hard festival, and then to perform at Norwegian Wood in Oslo with Insense, Gojiira and Read the rest of this entry »
