Gorguts have cancelled their European summer festival tour.
Mainman Luc Lemay issued the following explanation to all involved festival organizers: "First, I would like to apologize for this cancellation to your event and for any problems this could encouter in the process of setting up your festival. This decision was not easy to take. After many meetings and good faith to make this situation constructive for the band I came up choosing the option of not participating to any festival this Summer.
The whole idea about Gorguts doing a European Summer festivals tour was born last year with having in mind the release of our new record for the beginning of the Summer. But believe me, we were expecting our record deal to be negotiated and agreed on before Christmas or at the beginning of 2011. But as I'm writting this letter, I was not able to sign the contract yet with our record company.

Amazingly well composed their songs suits the Gorguts aesthetic wonderfully.
