Hull, England band Black Tongue will miss at least one date of their North American tour with Carnifex et al. due to delays in U.S. visa acquisition. The group has issued the following statement:
"It's hard to find the right words to say this but unfortunately we regret to announce we won't be appearing at the first date of the Decade of Despair tour tonight with Carnifex, Within The Ruins, Lorna Shore and The Last Ten Seconds Of Life. "This is completely out of our hands as we are still waiting on confirmation of our visa applications, which were started at the beginning of the year, so we can then visit the US embassy for interviews to be granted our visas. These interviews are due any day now and we aim to join the tour as soon as possible. "Please understand we have done everything in our power to make everything happen as it should, including losing more money for express services but unfortunately it seems US immigration is dealing with a huge backlog right now and it all lies in their hands. "We can understand some of you will be annoyed and upset that we won't be there, but trust us, we are just as frustrated. But we will be over to you as soon as we possibly can. "Thanks for your understanding."
