FILTER Cancels Gothenburg Concert After Receiving Death Threat

FILTER canceled its concert in Sweden earlier tonight (Monday, June 13) after individual bandmembers received death threats.

FILTER was scheduled to play at Sticky Fingers in Gothenburg as part of a European tour with COMBICHRIST, but called off the performance just hours before taking the stage. A FILTER representative told TMZ.com that the threats — which were sent electronically, and mentioned specific members, as well as the venue — weren’t taken lightly. The representative added that last week’s shooting death of Christina Grimmie, a former contestant on NBC‘s “The Voice”, during a post-show meet-and-greet and the mass shooting in Orlando played a role in FILTER‘s decision to scrap the Gothenburg concert.

FILTER is scheduled to perform in Stockholm on Tuesday, June 14.

The band is continuing to tour in support of its seventh album, “Crazy Eyes”, which was released on April 8 via Wind-Up Records.
