SCAR SYMMETRY Forced To Cancel North American Tour Due To Visa Issues
Swedish progressive melodic death metal icons SCAR SYMMETRY have released the following statement:
"It is with deep regret that we bring you these news: due to unforeseen problems securing our U.S. work visas in time, our North American headlining ['The Unseen Empire'] 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-too-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!"
SCAR SYMMETRY's latest album, "The Unseen Empire", sold around 1,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 11 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"The Unseen Empire" was released on April 15, 2011 in Europe and May 17, 2011 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.
