According to Kompas.com, Burgerkill vocalist Vicky Mono said that the tour had been postponed since last year.
“From Europe last year, we should’ve gone straight to the United States. Alas, we are only leaving for America next October,” he said at the Soundrenaline music festival in Bali on Sunday.
Burgerkill has released five albums since 2000 and is one of the most popular metal bands in the country. In 2018, the band along with Jakarta-based band Deadsquad held the Super Invasion 2018 tour of a number of European countries, including the Netherlands, Austria, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Poland.
