Metal Church has sadly cancelled all their 2024 live shows due to guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof's ongoing back injury. Metal Church was set to tour throughout the year to support their new record Congregation Of Annihilation, so this is a bit of a bummer. Still, we wish Vanderhoof all the best in his recovery and look forward to seeing Metal Church back on the road as soon as they can safely do so!
"Dear Friends (Kurdt here) As some of you may have recently noticed during our live performances, I frequently will disappear to the side of the stage during a set and continue playing while sitting on a chair," wrote Vanderhoof on Metal Church's social media. "This is due to an ongoing back issue that I've needed to deal with for a while now.
"I kept putting it off and it's finally caught up with me, so I'm going to get this taken care of so I can continue performing live in the future. That being said, sadly we will be canceling all upcoming show dates for 2024. I apologize for this but I need to get this taken care of. Check with your local venues for any refunds. Thank you for your continued support and I'm looking forward to seeing you in the future!"
