Soundwave Updates Adelaide Timetable As Volbeat Withdraw

Written by James Arnold-Garvey on March 1, 2014

Danish “outlaw rock’n’roll” four-piece Volbeat have withdrawn from remaining Soundwave dates due to a family emergency, forcing some last-minute scheduling changes at today’s Adelaide leg of the festival in Bonython Park.

The news was announced on the Soundwave Facebook page a couple of hours ago, posted alongside the revised set times for today. “VOLBEAT have been forced to withdraw from Soundwave due to a Family Emergency. Our thoughts are with them,” the statement read.

Adelaide thrash/death metal band Truth Corroded will be playing in Volbeat’s place at 3.20pm on stage 4A, and another local metal act Se Bon Ki Ra are “extremely honored” to be playing a 20-minute showcase set at 8.40pm on the same stage.

Volbeat are the eighth act to exit the festival, following in the footsteps of Stone Temple Pilots, Megadeth, Whitechapel, Sevendust, Newsted, Desaparecidos and Hardcore Superstar. The Dutch rockers played two Sidewaves this week alongside Filter and Hacktivist after their previous shows with Megadeth were cancelled.

UPDATE 6:00pm AEDT 02/02/14: Perth-based progressive metal outfit Chaos Divine have confirmed via their Facebook page that they will replace Volbeat on the Stage 4 Annex at tomorrow’s Soundwave Perth event. Volbeat were slated to play from 3:20pm – 4:00pm.
