FROZEN HEATH (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Technical metal band Arsis may be forced to cancel their tour after the trailer carrying their gear flipped over on an icy road in the frozen hinterlands of Iowa.
In a post on the band's website, frontman/guitarist Jim Malone said "Everyone's fine. Hard to believe this happened during the day, but the road is solid ice. The trailer flipped, broke loose of the hitch, and is now stuck in a snow bank. Better the trailer and not us. We're waiting to get it towed, since it's unusable. It's lodged in ice and we can't get to our gear, but we're sure it's all smashed. We need to assess the situation and see how much of our gear still works before we can say anything about finishing out the rest of the tour. We can't afford to buy a new trailer at this point. Again, we apologize to our fans. We'll have an update soon."
"We're going to try to find a room up the highway in the next small town. Hopefully we won't have to fight off inbred zombie cannibals… like we need that right now. We are all suuuper pissed that this has happened just as we were getting back on this tour. This sucks a lot of dinosaur dick – and that's a LOT of meat!" added bassist Noah Martin.
No word has yet been released on the remaining dates for the band's current tour, which officially stretches into the middle of March.
This isn't the first brush the band has had with vehicle-related tour troubles. Last year, the band had to drop off a the Slaughter Tour after their van broke down, leaving the band stranded. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
