A couple of weeks ago, Scar Symmetry announced a North American tour featuring support from Threat Signal and Stealing Axion which was set to take off next weekend, but the band has hit a bit of a snag with getting their visas, so the tour has been cancelled. Here’s the word from the band’s Facebook page:
NORTH AMERICANS can we have your attention please!
It is with deep regret that we bring you these news: due to unforeseen problems securing our US work visas in time, our North American headlining tour will have to be cancelled. The waiting time for a visa interview appointment was several weeks longer than what we’ve experienced before. Our sincere apologies to Threat Signal, Stealing Axion, Lord of War and Kings Field – you guys rule and we do hope for the opportunity to share a stage with you sometime in a not-to-distant future instead!
To our fans… we will work our asses off to make this up to you! Expect to see Scar Symmetry back in North America in 2013 – back with a vengeance!
Bummer. Hopefully the band will make good on their promise to return to North America next year with a bit more in the terms of extensive itinerary.
