Local thash metal titans Havok, who's in the midst of an extensive cross country tour in support of its Candlelight Records debut, Burn, had to cancel its show in Minneapolis last night due to engine problems the band experienced with its bus after a show in Lincoln, Nebraska this past Saturday night. No word yet on how many dates the breakdown will effect on the current tour, which still has more than thirty dates left and pairs Havok with kindred Bay-area metal outfit Hatchet. On a related note, looks like Havok has cemented its lineup with addition of time-keeper Scotti Fuller, of Sentinel Beast from San Francisco. The band is slated to return to Denver on Friday, October 23, for a show at the Fillmore with All That Remains and Lacuna Coil.
