The King Blues Pull Out Of Slam Dunk Festival

The King Blues

The King Blues have been forced to pull out of Slam Dunk Festival 2010.

Here’s the statement:

"We are sorry to announce The King Blues have been forced to pull out of Slam Dunk Festival 2010, due to the birth of frontman Itch’s baby. The due date of the baby is now the weekend of the festival. Below is a message from the father-to-be.

“Hi all. We’re very, very sorry to announce that we have had to pull out of this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. It’s not a decision we take lightly but there was genuinely nothing we could do about it. We had an amazing time last year, with some killer bands and a great atmosphere of fantastic kids and we’re gutted we won’t get to see this festival evolve into the 2 day mashup it has now become. Sorry to anyone who was planning on watching us and to all involved. Love, The King Blues."

A replacement for the band will be announced shortly, along with a host of new additions to the lineup, joining the already impressive company of New Found Glory, Four Year Strong, Capdown, Set Your Goals, RX Bandits, The Rocket Summer, Fireworks, Breathe Carolina, Out Of Sight and Every Avenue."
