Sweden's Raised Fist have again cancelled their planned Canadian tour dates in support of Sound of the Republic. They posted the following statement:

Alle has got some serious problems with his voice. He got it during the Australian tour already but we all thought he would recover well in time for the Canadian tour.

He's been treated with antibiotics. But unfortunately the problems remain the same and we can't take the chance to fly over the band for this tour, without being 100% sure that the band can perform.

This is a disaster for us all. It's a disaster for all the local promoters, it's a disaster for the band. AND it's a disaster for all the Raised Fist fans in Canada!! But please keep up the hope and the sprit, Raised Fist will hit Canadian soil again. Third time lucky!!! We are looking at doing the dates in February if possible.

We are very sorry for all the hassle and inconvenience this may cause our fans and promoters!

Of course this again puts our ticket giveaway on hold. We'll bring it back for the third try when the time comes.
