My Vitriol forced to pull out of Isle Of Skye festival

The comeback band have transport problems

Isle Of Skye Festival
My Vitriol have dropped out of the Isle Of Skye Festival at the last minute, after they were unable to secure a tourbus.

Som Wardner's one-time contenders haven't released a new album since 2001's 'Finelines', but now have fresh label interest, new material, and are pinning their hopes on a strong in the summer, following-on from a recent sold out gig at KOKO in north London.

However, according to Isle Of Skye promoter Chris McCormack, the band left procuring a bus to the last minute, and with the festival calendar swinging into high gear this weekend were left stranded in London. Promoters were reportedly unwilling to pay extra to have the band fly out for today's (May 26) scheduled performance on the island just off the west coast of Scotland.

The band will perform the Download Festival on June 9, and the London Astoria on September 29, with a single, 'War Of The Worlds', due to be released on June 11.
