Invocator was recently offered to tour Europe with Exodus, Agent Steel, Mortician, Behemoth and a couple of other bands, but decided to turn down the offer.
We would really like to tour Europe, but the timing just didn't seem right. We were afraid that the upcoming Invocator release "Through The Flesh To The Soul" wouldn't be released on time, and so we would have to tour Europe in front of a crowd that hadn't heard the new material + we wouldn't be able to sell our CD's or any other merchandise at any of the concerts.
Furthermore we were afraid that we didn't have the time necessary to rehearse enough for such a big tour. We would much rather wait until we have sufficient time to rehearse and then tour Europe in the Spring 2004.
So for now we have to turn down our European fans, but hopefully we'll be able to play in front you guys in the beginning of the new year instead.
