Bad Religion: Why We’re Not Coming As Part Of Soundwave Counter Revolution

Written by Jason Strange on August 21, 2011

With the ongoing saga that is Soundwave Revolution/Counter Revolution (or what I’m inclined to call Soundwave De-evolution) punk rock icons Bad Religion have given a brief statement as to why they are not still coming as a part of the mini festivals announced on Friday. By the sounds of it, they are less than impressed with AJ Maddah and Soundwave Touring and have pretty much written themselves off Soundwave 2012 as well.

“We want our fans in Australia to know that we will be back. The tour was canceled due to promoter decisions in which we had no involvement, nor were we consulted. Within only weeks of our departure to Australia, we were told the shows were canceled. We intend to work with a different promoter and come back as soon as possible. Thanks for all your continued support and patience”

The fallout will most likely continue for a while as we start to get the real picture as to why the festival was cancelled.
