In a statement from Dave Briggs, the band have confirmed that Waylander will not be performing at this years Heathen Crusade Festival which is scheduled to take place later this year in St Paul, USA. The band had refused to make a public announcement about their participation until certain terms of the agreement between the band and festival promoters were met. The festival organisers made a premature announcement that Waylander would be headlining, however the terms were yet to be met. The band have given ample time for the festival promoters to meet the terms but it’s came to a point were discussions have now ended and the band have now been forced to make a public statement that they will not be performing at Heathen Crusade.

“It is with great regret that we are forced to announce that Waylander will not be playing the Heathen Crusade Festival. The Heathen Crusade promoters have repeatedly promised but never provided us any funds to arrange transport to the USA. Although we are available, and nothing would make us happier than to play for some of our American fans, Heathen Crusades inability to meet the terms that they had agreed to makes it impossible for us.

We make this announcement now so that fans are aware of the situation and do not make any plans around the assumption that we are playing. We had refused to confirm that we were playing until it was certain, but Heathen Crusade announced it very prematurely. We can only say that we are very sorry to any fans who were looking forward to seeing us live, and that we are as disappointed as you are.”

The band recently announced a string of European dates including an appearance at the annual ‘Cerninnos Paganfest’ in Paris, France which takes place in just a few days.

“We hope this year will be a year of firsts for the band and we are off and running in that regard already!” comments the band vocalist ArdChieftain O’Hagan. “We are more than pleased to return to Paris for Cernunnos Paganfest. For an indoor event, it captures the Pagan atmosphere more than any other Festival in terms of decor, entertainment and general vibe. If our reception is as rapturous as last time we will be equally as delighted.”

“It’s been a decade since we last visited the west of Ireland and we jumped at the chance of playing in Galway as part of the Seactain na Gaeilge [Irish language week] celebrations.”

Commenting on the bands turn to new lands ArdChieftain adds, “There is no better feeling than playing new places, making new friends and sampling new cultures, so finally visiting Poland, Austria and Hungary is something we are very excited about, and are equally as pleased to be returning to Berlin, where we get the chance this time to play a full length set.

We would have been pleased with just one Polish gig but to have two is a huge bonus. We get to, not only visit Warsaw, but also Zielona Góra and we are really looking forward to experiencing the notoriously crazy Polish Metal audiences.

After having several aborted attempts to play in Austria over the years, we finally get the chance with a show in Klein-Pöchlarn. We hope our Austrian fans enjoy our performance.

None of us has visited Hungary before, so to be able to play in such a beautiful and historic city as Budapest has got our collective pulse racing. We have heard nothing but praise for the Pagan/Folk Metal scene in Hungary so it will be amazing to experience it for ourselves.”
