Hypocrisy May 2013 U.S. Tour Cancelled

Looks like visas are going to play a big factor in this last minute tour cancellation. Swedish Death Metallers Hypocrisy are going to have to sit out this U.S. tour which was set to start off on May 1, 2013 in New York at The Gramercy. The tour will continue with the original line up of KRISIUN, ARSIS, AUTUMN’S END, and STARKILL on select shows. Both HYPOCRISY and ABORTED will be off of this tour. Below is the official statement from the ban Hypocrisy’s facebook page.

Official Band Statement:
HYPOCRISY have been forced to sit out the upcoming North American tour this May due to reasons beyond their control. The band members had received their visa approvals and everything was going as scheduled, until the embassy let them know that the earliest they could pick up their visas, get them stamped and so on, wasn’t until late June at the earliest. A regular procedure that would normally take just a few days to sort, takes much longer at the moment due to that current workload Homeland Security is experiencing.

“As we were getting ready to go get our visas stamped and ready for the tour we were informed that the earliest we could go initially was sometime in July,” explains guitarist/vocalist Peter Tägtgren.“We then immediately continued to call them, got the label to help with some letters, and put our lawyer to work etc. The best that got us was an appointment in late June. This is a HUGE blow to us, to our fans and everyone who has supported HYPOCRISY in North America. Sometimes there are battles you can’t win, and this is one of them. We will be back, I can promise that!”

The trek was also initially set to feature Brazilian brothers in death KRISIUN,Belgian gore-grinders ABORTED, and technical-melodic-death-masters ARSIS,as well as AUTUMN’S END and STARKILL on select shows. The tour will continue as previously scheduled at this time minus HYPOCRISYand ABORTED.
