You think they'll still get that Mayhem tour? I have my doubts...
It's hard to speculate about them being dropped from the Mayhem tour since it's still far off. Everything will depend on the reaction to the upcoming statement, which I assume will calm the situation.

It is certainly a bump in the road, but all of this controversy will also introduce more people to their music. In the short term a bunch of PC people who were never dedicated fans in the first place will criticize them, but after a while it will blow over, just as the case was regarding many other bands that flirted with extremist views and/or used Nazi symbolism in the past.
