A short and definitely not sweet piece of deathcore related metal news for the start of the week has unfortunately reached the Scribes news desk; US metal beatdown masters Whitechapel, who were due to hit the UK with August Burns Red and The Devil Wears Prada in a couple of weeks time, have had to pull out of the tour. In a message about the tour, which is scheduled to begin on October 18th 2012 at Rock City in Nottingham, the band released the following message:
"We regretfully inform our UK and Euro fans that we have to cancel the upcoming run with August Burns Red and Devil Wears Prada due to an illness in the family. We sincerely apologize from the bottom of our hearts and promise will will make it over in 2013 to play for our wonderful fans. Thank you for understanding."
