UPDATE: The band have posted an explanation on their Facebook page...

0951: The band have posted the following statement and photo on their Facebook page. No King 810 for us this weekend, then...

"The Family:

We will not be performing at Download this weekend. Two of us were put behind bars in Flint, MI. on Thursday afternoon as we drove into Detroit Metro Airport for the flight to London. 

Upon arrival the Michigan State Police Fugitive Team arrested David and Eugene and took them away in handcuffs. 

At the time of this writing they remain in jail for an alleged assault from last year.

We apologize we cannot make it. We promise we will be there as soon as we possibly can. 

Yours. 

KING."

0930:


According to reports from the US overnight, two members of King 810 were arrested on Thursday just before they were due to fly to Download Festival... The band are due to play tomorrow, but the City Of Flint Police Department have posted that vocalist David Gunn and bassist Eugene Gill, both 28, were arrested at the Detroit Metro Airport on Thursday for Assault with Intent to do Great Bodily Harm in a case that dates back to October last year and involves an incident where a man was beaten outside a bar in Flint. The pair were arraigned last night.


Everything seems a bit murky at the moment, but there'll be more details on the story on our Live Updates of Download Festival as we hear them.
