Swedish progressive melodic death metal icons, SCAR SYMMETRY, have been forced to cancel their upcoming North American tour that was scheduled to take place this November/December. The band has issued the following statement:
“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!”
