German electro metalcore outfit ELECTRIC CALLBOY were due to hit the road this week and embark on their UK, EU, and US tour, but have had to postpone.
Statement from the band:
“While we are extremely grateful for all the feedback we get for our new album Tekkno, we have some very sad news today.
Nico has been suffering from a very severe jaw and middle ear infection for quite some time now. He has tried to get better between our shows and rehearsals, but it’s not working. The infection is coming back again and again. That’s why we already had to cancel the Blue Ridge Rock Fest two weeks ago.
Unfortunately, our hopes for a swift recovery were not fulfilled, and we have no option but to move our shows in England, France, and the US to new dates. We checked with every doctor we know, but they all say the same: no shows and especially no flying for Nico at the moment. Otherwise, he would risk permanent damage to his ear. That is a risk we definitely won’t take. We need Nico, and Nico needs his ears. And his ears need some time off.
There is not much we can do about that. We are super sorry and hope that you can support our decision. We were very excited to play those gigs and already put a lot effort in preparing them.
For the shows in England and France we will have new dates soon, meaning that the tickets stay valid. For the almost completely sold-out “THE LEVEL UP“ Tour we had planned in the US, we have to cancel our participation and come up with new dates next year. Support the other bands on this tour and party with them!
Believe us: We can’t wait to cross the Atlantic and come back next year. That’s a promise.”
ELECTRIC CALLBOY are in the middle of celebrating the release of their brand new album TEKKNO, out now via Century Media Records. They wouldn’t be Electric Callboy if they didn’t do what they do best on their new album, namely create feel good, electric party anthems.
In addition to the string of viral hits with “We Got The Moves”, “Pump It”, “Spaceman (Ft. FiNCH),”, “Fuckboi (Ft. ConquerDivide)”,”Hurrikan”, and most recently “Arrow of Love”, Electric Callboy’s sixth studio album also includes tracks that hark back to their trancecore roots, where the compositional maturity gained in recent years is striking with its cleverly staged loud and quiet dynamics.
TEKKNO is a roller coaster ride with dizzying highs, breathtaking passages and wild plunges that fans and critics are sure to find the band’s most thrilling work to date.
