HYPOCRISY: Forced To Cancel First Ever Australian Tour - Official Statement Available!
This just in via Blabbermouth, Swedish Death Metal monsters HYPOCRISY have been forced to cancel their previously announced Australian tour. Here is what the bands front man Peter Tägtgren had to say about this unfortunate situation:
"[The promoter] hasn't yet provided us with flights or working visa for this tour and we're forced to leave next Monday, January 14. We have asked time after time after time, and even put up a deadline to deliver that, but he has failed to do so for three months now. It's so close that it's all too late now. We can't even get into the country even if we had flight tickets, 'cause he didn't fix working visa for us yet. I can only hope you get your money back for the tickets you bought, and that [another] booker from Australia will invite us soon so we can finally go to your country."
This are the affected dates:
- Jan 16th: Hifi Bar in Brisbane, AU
- Jan 17th: Amplifier in Perth, AU
- Jan 18th: Manning Bar in Sydney, AU
- Jan 19th: Hifi Bar in Melbourne, AU
- Jan 20th: Fowlers Live in Adelaide, AU
As previously announced, HYPOCRISY are currently wrapping up the recording process of their upcoming NEW studio album entitled 'End Of Disclosure'. The record is tentatively scheduled for a late March release via Nuclear Blast Records.
Band leader Peter Tägtgren commented: "Hi all, we're still in the studio working hard to finalize the album. Horgh just layed down the drums - and let me tell you - it sounds awesome!!! Thundering and brutal! We can't wait to put out the new tracks and play them live! Hope to meet you all soon on road and wish you guys a great X-mas and happy new year!“
