The band has released the following statement:
"It is with great regret that we have to inform you that Andy (screaming vocals) will not be part of our debut show in the US, at ProgPower in Atlanta, GA. Andy has recently become a father, and needs the time to dedicate himself to his family - but don't worry, he will be back in the shows that follows!
To fill his shoes we are happy to say that Nightrage vocalist Antony Hämäläinen will temporarily fill Andy's huge screamer-shoes! Antony has for years shared the stage with Olof, and is also a long-time friend of the band, which ensures as seamless of a replacement as possible. See you all American Amaranthe fans soon!"
