Now in its seventh year, Sydney’s pure metal Steel Assassins Festival has some bad new to announce.
Due to ongoing health issues, Peter Hobbs has decided to pull the pin on Hobbs Angel of Death ahead of what was to be their final tour. The band will cease touring immediately, putting a damper on the festival which was to feature the group’s final Australian performance and the first night headline attraction. News about a replacement act will be released as soon as possible.
The festival, on November 2 & 3 at Sydney’s Bald Faced Stag Hotel, also features LORD, Harlott, Espionage, Killrazer and more, including international visitors Stormforge from New Zealand and Singaporean metalheads Tormentress.
Peter Hobbs is one of the most important pioneers of the Australian metal scene and LOUD wishes him the best of health and a speedy recovery.
