“I do not want to bore you with details, but I can no longer hide the fact that I was seriously ill and waiting for my multi-stage treatment, which can take up to several months. Thus, we refer the coming summer festivals, planned for September and October tour in Russia and the Baltics, and the November tour of the USA. I know that this is not the best news for you, but health is most important. I’ve got a rather difficult period, and a lot of work but I became hardened in the fire, is not it? You know me, so that you know that out of this stronger than ever. Then all the concerts also will plan from scratch and even greater momentum. At this time, feels good, my head is to fight the disease, everything is under control professionals. I have with me the most wonderful and loving woman, family, team, managers and people from publishing companies who are doing everything to support me. Do not ask for more than just a little bit of patience. I would add that the fact that in the near future we will not be touring with does not go into hibernation. We have a lot to offer you in the coming months, Behemoth will work on many other fronts. In coming days expect release of our latest clip ‘Alas, Lord Is Upon Me’. Ensures that this is the most perfect, the most provocative and stimulating I have ever made a picture.
