The other day, I mistakenly reported the Hypocrisy tour was finished.
The truth is the tour is carrying on without Hypocrisy…and now, Aborted.
The band officially commented on their cancellation of their North American tour, which now only features Krisiun and Arsis — which is still fucking awesome, but not as rad.
“Due to reasons beyond control, Hypocrisy were not able to receive their U.S. visas in time and had to pull out. We only found out 3 days ago and were sharing transport with Hypocrisy,” says Aborted.
“Being this close to the start of tour, finding an affordable method of transportation and a driver was a near impossible task, making it impossible for us to still make it.”
Dude. I would have driven for you guys. We could have rented a U-Haul, and fucking made this shit happen. All I would have asked for in return was a measly tour diary.
“We are extremely disappointed as we were very excited to make it back out to the U.S. for our fans and share the stage on this great line-up,” says Aborted.
“We had flights booked, visas processed, and everything was good to go, so when the news hit, it came as a shock. This cost us several thousands of dollars out of our own pockets and continuing would cost us even more money, which we simply don’t have.
“We apologize to the fans and are already looking for a replacement tour in the near future. Krisiun and Arsis are still doing the tour, and we urge you all to still go and support them. All the bands here are victims in this of bureaucratic procedures, so no need to point fingers. We are all as broken by this as anyone else.”
