I Am War Pull Out Of “California Metal Fest” For Health Issues

I Am War have backed out of this years “California Metal Fest” as a result of health problems being suffered by the bands Alex Varkatzas (also of Atreyu). Speaking on his ailments, Varkatzas offered:

“We regret to announce we will not be playing this years california metal fest. I (alex) have been dealing with some personal health problems that have really inhibited I AM WARs ability to practice for the show. With Brandan and MYself working full time it has been next to impossible to schedule a practice and couple that with my unreliable health, we do not feel ready to play the show.

We would not be able to give our best set, and on a night with so many great bands on the lineup, we dont wanna take time/attention from a band that can put their best foot forward.My health is on the mend, but i would not be 100% for the show.

i am sorry. thanks to everyone for understanding. I AM WAR is a side project and a mad dream. we look to play again soon. maybe next year. thank you to metal fest for giving us a spot on their awesome FEST. -alex
