JESU Secures Work Permits To Enter U.S.

After a long delay, JESU the new band featuring Justin Broadrick — former member of two legendary bands, NAPALM DEATH and GODFLESH — has finally secured work permits and visas to enter the U.S. According to MTV.com, the band was originally scheduled to start touring with ISIS on February 22, but there was an "unforeseen backlog at the U.S. embassy in London" that prevented JESU from entering the country. The band's first show in North America will now be Sunday (March 11) in Washington, D.C., with dates scheduled through April 8 in Los Angeles. Danny Walker, whose band INTRONAUT have been filling in for JESU on the ISIS tour, will replace Ted Parsons, who was unable to make the JESU trek.

JESU released its new album, "Conqueror", in the U.S. on February 20. The initial double vinyl release was made available on Conspiracy Records from Belgium.
