Soilwork Cancel Tour with Symphony X

Swedish modern metallers SOILWORK, who were originally scheduled to head
out this April & May supporting SYMPHONY X – have regretfully been
forced to cancel their participation on this upcoming North American

Drummer Dirk Verbeuren has issued the following statement:

“Due to recurring issues with a herniated disc in his lower back
requiring a prolonged period of resting and healing, our guitarist Peter
Wichers is forced to sit out this spring’s North American tour with
Symphony X and Nevermore. We did consider hiring a fill-in guitar
player, but we’ve decided to stick together as a band and out of respect
for our fans, to cancel our participation in the tour. Our apologies to
those of you who were hoping to see us. If all goes well, Peter should
be healed and ready to hit the road in time for the summer festivals.”
