Discharge Frontman Permanently Banned By Canada


(nuclearblast) Discharge revealed that they played their final Canadian show earlier this week at the Rickshaw Theater in Vancouver, British Columbia after learning frontman JJ has been permanently banned from entering the country.

JJ had this to say, "Well... I'm permanently banned from Canada. Criminal charges from 20 years ago. However they let me in to play the show for a "low" cost of $200 as long as I leave the country after we play. Bones made it in by the skin of his teeth... Tezz / Rainy not allowed back in the USA.

"Karl Morris 'Egghead' from The Exploited, UK Subs etc. will be filling in on bass for us. Doesn't look like Discharge will ever be allowed back in Canada... so looks like tonight will be our last Canadian show. All USA shows still on... see ya soon!"

The show in Vancouver was the first date of Discharge's highly anticipated North American tour - the remaining US dates are going ahead as planned. Support will be coming from Eyehategod and Toxic Holocaust.

Guitarist Tezz and bassist Rainy are permanently banned from entering the USA therefore are not playing on this run, Karl 'Egghead' Morris ex. The Exploited, UK Subs is filling in on bass.
