Unfortunately due to the illness of Chimaira's vocalist Mark Hunter, the band have had to postpone the entire UK/Euro tour which included a headlining spot at Takedown Festival mere weeks away.

The band issued the following statement:
"'I'm sorry to say that Chimaira will have to postpone the upcoming European and UK dates. I am extremely sick at the moment with pneumonia and have been advised not to travel for a minimum of two weeks. The last thing we want to do is cancel. We are working to reschedule the shows and will have new dates set up shortly. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and we hope to get over there ASAP."

Takedown Festival have been quick to draft in a replacement though, as London Metal Band Rise To Remain have stepped forward to take their place. Rise To Remain are one of the most exciting live bands on the scene at the moment, and have been a constant feature on festival line ups in recent years.
