Abbath Return – Outsiders in Europe Tour

Spread the metal:

Abbath Return

by Johnny Wolf

Few months ago in Argentina, formal Immortal front-man Abbath ended up playing a very confusing two songs set by awkwardly crowd surfing, ending up in the crowd in tears. It was fairly obvious he was drunk and having some issues which resulted in the cancellation of South America tour and the black metal legend releasing the following statement:

Throughout life you’re dealt different decks of cards. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to live my dream, which is writing music, putting out records and touring the world, playing to fans all over the globe. For the most part it has been a tremendous ride, but there’s also been moments where things have gone wrong. Most notably during the recent tour of South America, where we had to cancel shows in Argentina and Brazil.

“It’s no secret that I’ve been battling addiction. I have now come to realize that it’s time to pick a fight with this demon. I’ve committed myself to a rehab program that’s going to help me get clean once and for all. I feel more motivated and determined than ever to win this battle.

“Due to my program, we need to cancel the December shows that we have scheduled with my other band, Bömbers. We do apologize to our fans that was looking forward to these shows. We will make it up to all of you, and we’re currently working on rescheduling these shows.

“Right now I’m very much looking forward to be coming back clean, stronger and more focused and fired up than ever.

“Europe and USA, you have been warned, we’ll hunt you down like a thunderstorm next year. Nothing is going to stop us.”

It was a bit of a downer to all of us as we love Abbath but also considering the European tour was just around the corner, this news covered the tour in ambiguity and uncertainty, I personally have friends whom have booked tickets flying from the States to come attend the London gig; but such a problem is no laughing matter, we all need to show our support and love for him in the hopes he recovers really soon!

Today we have some great news! After two month in rehab the legend is back stronger than ever, you can see his video and message down here:
