King 810 cancel Euro tour

King 810 have cancelled their planned European festival tour, which included a set at Download next month.

It’s the second time they’ve failed to appear at Donington, following the arrests of frontman David Gunn and bassist Eugene Gill as they set off for the UK from their Michigan home last year.

King 810 say via Facebook: “We were trying to make this work, but some unforeseen shit at home will keep us in the States at this time. We apologise to everyone who will miss us.

“But we plan on making the best of the situation – going home and working on more music, more videos and more content for y’all. Again, we apologise, and we will make it back over there as soon as possible.”

Gunn told fans this week: “We’re finishing up the final touches on our latest project. I promise to get y’all a preview within a week. Stay tuned.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
