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.”
