U.S. IMMIGRATION SCREWS THE POOCH AGAIN, FORCES CANCELLATION OF HYPOCRISY TOUR
So were pretty stoked about Hypocrisy’s upcoming U.S. tour with Children of Bodom’s Alexi Laiho playin the leed gee-tar, but then it looked like U.S. immigration might derail the whole thing. And now they have.
A very brief statement from the band reads:
“We regretfully have to officially announce the cancelation of our tour in North America. We’ve tried everything so far and it seems like the process will take longer than expected for one of the members in the band. We will try to come back as soon as possible, as we want to show our US fans that we care for them and we are ready to play the new songs live!”
The press release does not say if the other bands on the tour will continue without Hypocrisy, but since Ensiferum were technically the headliners, I’m assuming they are. Plus, the dates are still listed on Ensiferum’s MySpace page – but maybe they’ve just been too busy raping and pillaging to take ’em down as of yet.
So, not much else to say… three cheers for red tape, I guess. Hopefully we can to see Hypocrisy – with or without Laiho – real soon.
