While the ongoing pandemic has thrown various curve balls at us throughout the past year, ultimately delaying the completion of Meshuggah’s upcoming studio album – there are other concerns that have forced us to make this unfortunate decision. The determining factor is the need to prioritize the physical health of one of the band members who are currently undergoing medical treatment related to a skin condition on their hands, preventing them from rehearsing and playing their instrument.
While we are optimistic about his future recovery, we know it won’t be possible for him and the band to be ready to perform already in February 2022.
These shows are now on the move, unfortunately Converge will no longer be able to tour. However, we are grateful that Torche continues to play with us. Another special guest to replace Converge and complete Bill is to be announced.
