EVERGREY Issues Statement Regarding Marietta Concert Cancellation

Swedish metallers EVERGREY have released the following statement regarding the postponement of their previously announced March 12 concert in Marietta, Georgia:

"We are so fucking sorry for not being able to play, but the rules of USA's immigration prevents us from doing so. Normally this has never been a problem as the paperwork has always been swift enough, but now, for some reason, we have yet to be approved. Even more frustrating (if possible) is that we will be there, in Atlanta, but not be able to perform. We have all our shit with us and everything, as we are also going to Mexico, BUT WE CAN'T PLAY.

"We are so terribly sorry for this, as we are not and have never been a band that cancels, anything. However, this is out of our hands... We are looking to make this up by returning in May to perform for you guys and also try to fit some more gigs in there. (We have lost a major amount of money due to connecting flights to Mexico that are already bought and paid for and the petitions we still have to pay even though we aren't even approved!) But at the same time of course understand and appreciate that some our fans loss are hitting them harder. Once again we are as sorry as we can be, but we are a band of our word and will return to compensate, in one way or another.

"For those of you who are interested we can share the same bench out in a park somewhere before our flight to Mexico takes off on the 13th... drowning our sorrows in imagenary beers. So send all hate and threats to [email protected] or [email protected]"

EVERYGREY will play the EyeScream Metal Fest at Circo Volador in Mexico City, Mexico on March 14. Also scheduled to appear are 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, SHINING and DARK LUNACY.

"Torn", the new album from EVERGREY, entered the official chart in the band's home country at position No. 4. The CD was released in North America on September 23. The limited edition comes in a high-class digipack with one bonus track ("Caught In A Lie").
