MELBOURNE, Australia (CelebrityAccess) — Australian tour promoter and record label Heathen Skulls has announced that they will be shuttering amidst the cancellation of the Toxic Holocaust and Iron Reagan Australian and New Zealand.
In a statement announcing the cancellation, Heathen Skulls' Robert MacManus wrote:
“It’s with a certain level of regret and an equal amount of relief that I must announce the cancellation of the Toxic Holocaust and Iron Reagan Australian and New Zealand tour this November.
“Over the last 12 months, since signing onto to this tour, my financial situation has changed dramatically, the touring industry in Australia has become a lot more competitive and oversaturated; because of such things, I’ve decided to pull back from touring as the risks involved are just too steep.
“At this point in time, due to other pressing commitments, I no longer have the time or the financial resources to meet the demands of touring or to keep Heathen Skulls sustainable.”
Originally set for April with Skeletonwitch, the tour was postponed when Toxic Holocaust frontman became ill.
According to Heathen Skulls' website, the company was launched in 2005 by Robert MacManus as a boutique record label, touring agency, and backline hire business focused on metal, experimental and stoner rock.
