WATAIN Forced To Cancel First Five U.S. Appearances

Swedish black metal horde WATAIN have been forced to cancel the first five shows (including one headlining performance) of their previously announced North American tour — scheduled to start tomorrow (April 11) in Columbus, Ohio — due to delays in the visa process.

Comments the band in a collective statement: “It’s not the first time the law stands in our way trying to prevent us from doing our work, and just like all the previous times it will lay broken and humiliated eventually. We are content we will be victorious, meanwhile we ask all our U.S. supporters to have patience and prepare themselves for the coming of WATAIN!”
