Hypocrisy and Aborted Pull Out Of North American Tour
The two remaining bands, Krisiun and Arsis, still plan to continue with the tour. Aborted broke the news to fans with the following message:
"Unfortunately, rumors are true. We were forced to pull out of our north American tour with Hypocrisy, Krisiun and Arsis. Due to reasons beyond control, Hypocrisy were not able to receive their us visas in time and had to pull out. We only found out three days ago and were sharing transport with Hypocrisy. 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.
"We are extremely disappointed as we were very excited to make it back out to the us for our fans and share the stage on this great line up. We had flights booked. Visas processed and everything 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."
