Lacuna Coil has canceled their appearance on the fifth annual ShipRocked cruise, which takes place January 26-30. According to a message on the band’s Facebook page, the band decided to pull out of the festival so they can take care of some pressing personal issues.
“We are dealing with some very serious personal family matters at this time which demand our full attention,” writes the band in a joint statement. “Sadly, we are unable to travel such a far distance away from our loved ones. We truly hope that you can understand. Our most sincere apologies to everyone planning to come see us. “
This year’s ShipRocked cruise will feature sets by Five Finger Death Punch , Papa Roach , Three Days Grace , Device , Sevendust , In This Moment , and Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch ’s side project, Love & Death , among others. Between shows, fans can participate in games, activities and even hang out with some of the bands for meet-and-greet sessions. To view the full lineup for the event, visit ShipRocked.com .
