British metalcore troupe Rise To Remain have stepped in to replace Chimaira‘s slot at this month’s Takedown Festival, who have regretably been forced to pull out of their entire UK/EU headline tour due to vocalist Mark Hunter falling ill. You can read a statement from Mark below:
“I’m sorry to say that Chimaira will have to postpone the upcoming European and UK dates. I am extremely sick at the moment with pneumonia and have been advised not to travel for a minimum of two weeks. The last thing we want to do is cancel. We are working to reschedule the shows and will have new dates set up shortly. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and we hope to get over there ASAP.”
Rise To Remain will headline the festival’s Total Uprawr stage at 21:10-22:10 on March 15th 2014.
Tickets for Takedown Festival are available now priced at £30.00 (£34.00 with aftershow party access) and can be purchased online from the festival’s official website (here).
