EX-DEO Drop Off PaganFest, But Hey! Look Who's Sponsoring It...
Well well well, looks like we are sponsoring this year's iteration of the Pagan Fest, along with Guitar World Magazine and Full Metal Jackie, and we couldn't be more pumped. Turisas will headline the event, with support from Alestorm, Arkona and Huntress. Ex-Deo were also originally on the bill, but had to drop off so they could focus on finishing their new album. Frontman Maurizio Iacono released the following statement:
"It is with deep disappointment that I am obliged to pull EX DEO off this year's PaganFest. We were all excited to play this festival and premier some new material, but unfortunately our new album 'Caligvla' has been delayed, and we need to finish it and make it perfect. Add to that, the KATAKLYSM DVD is also on its final production phase…We decided it would be best to concentrate on giving every bit of attention to the album you have been waiting for, and also for the KATAKLYSM documentary to kick major ass."
"This being said, we will still perform with EX DEO on the Montreal & Toronto shows with PaganFest, as we will be in studio in the area, closing up the album 'Caligvla'. Everything else is cancelled for EX DEO. We will return to support the album in the fall…"
"Word from Rome is that the plans are already in motion for world conquest! We ask our fans to support PaganFest and the great bands playing this year!"
