Aborted comments on cancelled North American tour

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 6:45 PM PT


Official press release:

Goremasters Aborted have cancelled their North American tour plans. In regards to this cancellation, front-man Sven de Caluwé comments:

"Unfortunately rumors are true. We were forced to pull out of our North American tour with Hypocrisy, Krisiun and Arsis. Due to reasons beyond control, Hypocrisy were not able to receive their US visas in time and had to pull out. We only found out 3 days ago and were sharing transport with Hypocrisy. Being this close to the start of tour, finding an affordable method of transportation and a driver was a near impossible task, making it impossible for us to still make it. We are extremely disappointed as we were very excited to make it back out to the US for our fans and share the stage on this great line-up. We had flights booked, visas processed, and everything was good to go, so when the news hit, it came as a shock. This cost us several thousands of dollars out of our own pockets and continuing would cost us even more money, which we simply don't have. We apologize to the fans and are already looking for a replacement tour in the near future. Krisiun and Arsis are still doing the tour, and we urge you all to still go and support them. All the bands here are victims in this of bureaucratic procedures, so no need to point fingers. We are all as broken by this as anyone else."

They could have rented a van & trailer from another band... and Sweden's driving laws are real similar, they drive on the same side of the road, bring a TM / merch guy to do most of the driving, suck it up and tour without a bus if there have already been "thousands of dollars" spent
