The band had this to say on their official Myspace page: “First off, we’d like to thank you all for your support over the last year. It was a warm welcome back to the arena and everyone in the Buzzov-en camp appreciated every minute of it. Now, on to the bad news. Unfortunately, Kirk is having some health issues that need to be resolved before he is able to tour again. Hence, it is with heavy hearts that we must announce the postponement of Buzzov-en’s European tour in April and our appearance at Roadburn. We will have rescheduled dates booked and posted ASAP, and the fine folks at Roadburn have already been gracious enough to invite us to play next year’s event. Once Kirk has completed his treatments over the next several weeks, all should be well and he is expected to make a quick recovery, so the Maryland Deathfest and Hellfest appearances are both still on. soon. We’ll have another update for you shortly. Thanks for your understanding and continued support. – Buzzov-en”
Buzzov•en was one of the biggest yet overlooked underground metal bands of the ’90’s, known for their eclectic doom metal sound and their violent live shows. This most recent reunion has been what fans have been waiting for over the past decade as the band has been on-again and off-again since the late 90’s and haven’t had an official album release since 1998.
