Taake North American Tour Postponed :(
It was with extreme sadness we report that Taake’s upcoming North American, MetalSucks-sponsored run with Young and in the Way and Wolvhammer has been canceled.
The band just issued a statement via Facebook:
We are sorry to have inform you that the upcoming Taake US tour has been postponed. This is due to an unforeseen and serious issue with Taake’s visa status. Immigration specialists are working to correct the matter as quickly as possible. We are doing our best to save the scheduled NYC shows and on re-scheduling the rest of the tour.
Damn visa issues… once again!
No word yet if Wolvhammer and/or Young and in the Way will continue on the dates with local support.
The rescheduled tour will be announced once visa details have been completed.
Metal Insider has some addition info about the Stardust Festival, which was set to take place at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar on June 27th and 28th, the second night of which would’ve featured Taake. From Stardust’s Facebook:
I’ve just been informed on the issues with Taake’s visas. News is still coming in. There are still chances that they get the papers in time for the two NYC shows. In that case new plane tickets would have to be purchased. Please don’t panic, we’re doing our best to figure out possibilities.
Even if the tour is cancelled, Stardust V GOES ON. Too many amazing acts booked to throw it all away, asides from the fact that plane tickets for Fell Voices and Mutilation Rites have been purchased already.
We’re looking at all scenarios at the moment, a replacement, partial refund at the door whatever will work best for everyone. Lots of money has been invested and spent for this already, and something good will come out of it regardless of Taake’s turnout.
Thank you all for understanding. It’s a tough spot to be in and we need your support and patience for now, until we know more.
More information as we get it.
