ROTERSAND NOTICE

"Unfortunately Rotersand and [:SITD:] will not be participating in this year's festival.

Below is the official statement from Rotersand:

"As many of you have realized by now, we have decided to cancel our
United States tour planned for March 2008 with SITD. The background for that
is the cancellation of two Canadian Rotersand shows in October 2007 on shortest
notice due to a combination of a huge personal workload and
constitutional weakness. Since we can not rule out a similar situation for the
originally scheduled shows in 2008 we have decided to not take this risk.

We absolutely hate cancelling shows and disappointing fans and
promoters, especially as we are well aware of the great demand for Rotersand
playing in the States and Canada. We are working on setting up a new timeframe for
touring activities in North America sometime in the not too distant
future."
