Last friday there was a lot of commotion within the Christian metal scene after Deliverance canceled their performance on the Rock Alive fest. (April 14) and also about the statement that Rock Alive released.
Now they have released the following jointly statement;
Dear Rock Alive & Deliverance Fans,
The last few days there’s a lot been written and said about the situation regarding Deliverance and the Rock Alive festival. Back and forth there have been harsh words, and things been done that shouldn’t been done. Both Rock Alive and Deliverance regret the way this has gone out of hand. Therefore the past days were spend by both sides to talk about this to try to understand and clear things up. This has led to the conclusion that along the way there have been a lot of misunderstandings. Things that were said during conversations were misinterpreted, and Rock Alive admits that where it concerns the airplane tickets they should have been much more decisive. Also does Rock Alive regret the fact that they have put too much focus on cancelations that happened in the past. This was unnecessary. We are glad to report that after these conversations both parties have come closer together again. Unfortunately hasn’t this resulted in Deliverance traveling to the Netherlands again.
As a token of good will both parties will after posting this statement also delete all earlier posts concerning this situation, to symbolize the new start.
