Unfortunately Yob has cancelled their entire European tour of 2011. Which means that we won't be seeing them at Roadburn Festival either, where they were going to perform their entire 2005 album "The Unreal Never Lived". The Roadburn organizers are working hard on a replacement and says that they will have one by this Wednesday (the 12th).

Here's a statement from Mike Scheidt as published on Roadburn.com

“We regretfully must announce that YOB cannot appear at the Roadburn Festival in April 2011. We are heartbroken to not be in attendance. Roadburn 2010 was and is one of the highlight experiences of our lives, as a band and individually as people. We do intend to come to Europe sometime in 2011 and hope to be invited to Roadburn 2012. Until then we want to thank Walter, Jurgen, and everyone who makes this incredible event possible. We also wish to apologize to anyone who wanted to see YOB there this year. We promise you we will be back. Be Well – Mike S/YOB.
