Baby Animals Pull Out Of Stone Music Festival

Feb 20th 2013 | 5:15pm | Dan Condon
There has been a fair amount of speculation as to the veracity of Sydney's newest major music event, the Stone Music Festival, which was announced out-of-the-blue over the weekend. It seems this speculation is already enough for one Aussie band, with the festival suffering its first casualty already.

The Baby Animals were one of a few Australian acts to be announced on the Stonefest bill, but this afternoon they have announced they will no longer be playing the event.

In a statement posted on the band's Facebook page, frontwoman Suze DeMarchi announced that the band just didn't feel right about the show and decided to withdraw from its bill early.

“To cut a very long story short, we have decided to withdrawal from the up-coming STONEFEST,” she wrote. “It all became too difficult, too quickly. We hope not to disappoint too many of our supporters with this news, but it just wasn't feeling right to us.”

DeMarchi went on to announce that the band had new material to unveil in the near future, which seems to have placated many fans.

“We will however make it up to you with a brand new single in April, plus a new album (finally) and national tour shortly after. Big year ahead!”

The event, which happens in Sydney late-April, is to feature Van Halen, Billy Joel, Buckcherry, Richie Ramone and more.
