Marduk Drop Off Their Own Headlining Tour
Were you stoked to catch Marduk on their current tour with Rotting Christ, Carach Angren, and Necronomicon that’s underway as we speak? Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it appears that Marduk never made it into the country, and now they won’t be able to. Rotting Christ are the official headliners of the entire tour.
Why? Why else for a black metal band — issues with their US visas.
The band released the following statement:
“As the situation with the US visa still haven’t been solved, the booking agency together with Marduk have decided to postpone the tour! News regarding rebooked dates and so on will be posted as soon as the time for the tour has been decided.”
Ugh, man, tale as old as time in the metal world. One has to wonder if there’s some sort of reform that can be made, either in band management practice or in the work visa protocol, that could keep this from happening so often. I’m no expert on this, so anyone with greater insight into how or if the system could be reformed should let us know in the comments.
Well, we wish the best to the dudes in Marduk. Sorry for the troubles, guys. The remaining tour dates are listed below.
