UNLEASHED were forced to cancel this Saturday’s performance (Saturday, May 7) at the Incineration Fest in London, United Kingdom after drummer Anders Schultz broke his ribs in an accident.

On Friday, UNLEASHED took to social media to write: “Warriors!!! We are extremely sad to inform you that Anders just had an accident and broke his ribs. Hence he has trouble breathing and is unable to play the show in London on Saturday the 7th. Right now we are all just very disappointed but there is nothing we can do but to cancel our show.

UNLEASHED’s latest studio album, “No Sign Of Life”, came out last November via Napalm Records.

In addition to SchultzUNLEASHED’s current lineup includes founding frontman Johnny Hedlund and guitarists Tomas Måsgard and Fredrik Folkare.

Singer Johnny Hedlund states about the new single: “In the battle of life, there will be moments, for the Warrior, when the whole world seems to be against you. When pain and suffering is at its peak and everything is pitch black. This is the time to recall the reason for the struggle, and to remember those before you, their resolve and will of steel. You aim for the most noble deed of all and strive toward greatness, the highest of all ideals. That…is the call to Odin. As you sail into the great unknown of life, the great adventure, there will be dark clouds on the horizon, and know that sooner or later the winds will die down, and YOU will need to ROW. That…is the hour of the Midgard Warrior. It is then your time to bear the axe of responsibility, and the shield of protection for those who cannot protect themselves. Your forefathers’ battle is over, this is now yours! You are the Warrior! And You FIGHT!

Watch the previously released “Where Can You Flee?” below.

UNLEASHED on the album: “It is our hope that our warriors all over the world will enjoy the new album just like they have our previous ones. We have, as always, tried to stick to our roots while testing our steel to develop the genre of Viking death metal even further. Hail Odin!
