SKINDRED said in a statement: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, beyond our control. We have unfortunately had to cancel our run of upcoming U.S. tour dates, which were due to start in Florida later this week. We sincerely apologise to you who have bought tickets for any inconvenience caused and hope to reschedule some of these shows back in for 2019."

The Chameleon Club in Harrisburg, Pennasylvania, where SKINDRED was scheduled to perform on October 3, offered more information on the band's cancelation, writing in a tweet: "We have just been advised that SKINDRED's visas have been delayed and will not be approved 'for at least another few weeks.' Unfortunately, this means we will have to cancel the upcoming tour date at the Chameleon Club. Refunds can be received at your point of purchase."
