Due to international visa issues, Swedish metallers IN FLAMES have pulled out of “The Metal Tour Of The Year,” co-headlined by MEGADETH and LAMB OF GOD and featuring special guests TRIVIUM. Replacing them on the bill will be HATEBREED.

IN FLAMES said in a statement: “In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we had to make the difficult decision to not join ‘The Metal Tour Of The Year’. We were looking forward to playing for you all and this was an unbelievably hard choice to make.

“Thank you for understanding and your support as we all get through this unprecedented time. We have a lot of things in the works for 2022 – more on that shortly. Stay safe & we’ll see you on the road again soon!”

The rescheduled “The Metal Tour Of The Year” will now kick off on Friday, August 20 in Austin, Texas and hit a further 26 cities before wrapping in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada on Saturday, October 2.

Dates and tickets for the tour are available here.
