Bloodbath Postpones 2018 North American Tour

Do you folks remember a few months ago when we shared the news about the return of Bloodbath to US Shores? Well, since that time there has been a rather sad change in the plans. Check out the bands official statement from their Facebook.

The Press Release:
It’s with an immense mix of anger, frustration and sadness that we’re forced to announce the following news…

We will not be flying out tomorrow to begin our first North American tour we all so much looked forward to playing.

We’ve been rehearsing and preparing this for months and our gear and bags are packed ready by the doorstep, but sadly due to the US Immigration and Embassy making a mistake with our visas, they couldn’t fix it in time and reissue it.

We hoped we never would have to make this kind of announcement, we were still trusting they would issue it in time to the very bitter end, but now with less than 24hrs to go, we have to accept our fate, it ain’t gonna happen.

We’re so sorry for all of you who bought a ticket and made plans to come see Bloodbath!

On any kind of positive note, we WILL be rescheduling (nothing else is acceptable!) and prepare to play the tour as soon as possible. More news on refunds etc. ASAP.

The Cancelled Dates:
5/23 – Regent Theater, Los Angeles, CA
5/24 – Modified Ghost Festival, Vancouver, BC
5/25 – Maryland Deathfest, Baltimore, MD
5/26 – Brighton Music Hall, Boston, MA
5/27 – Irving Plaza, New York, NY
5/28 – Phoenix Concert Theater, Toronto, ON
5/29 – Corona, Montreal, QC

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I think its pretty safe to say that if you are a band from the other side of the USA at this point that you really better get an earlier and more on point focus to your visas. Under the current administration with all his anti-foreign visiting rhetoric, it’s in your best interests to dot every “i” and cross every “t” and then have someone double-check it all. The visa problems report is far too often of late and I don’t see it ending at any time soon.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told I’ve not the biggest background in the band Bloodbath but I’ve seen a few videos and listened to a couple of the releases over the years. It’s great that they are coming here at long last to do some shows, albeit a very brief run. It’s out job as fans of that which be Metal to rally behind them so more things like this can determine whether or not they can do shows here. What do you readers think about this tour news? Have you seen the band before, perhaps during some European festival? If so please chime in down below.

“Let Sorrow Reign”; Katatonia Announces “Fallen Heart Of North America” Tour For 2017

A short while ago a wave of sadness and dread hit Metal fans across the nation and the melancholy only increased as more and more reports about Katatonia returning to the USA for a month-long tour became apparently clear. Well, as clear as tears would let one see at least. The sorrow was palpable at the revelation and when it comes to Katatonia this is a very good thing. A friend once said to me “if listening to Katatonia music makes you happy then you’re doing it wrong” and with that I will share the bands revelations and dates along with a very solemn poster.

The Band Commentary:
We’re excited to announce our ‘Fallen Hearts of North America’ headline tour in March & April 2017.

Guitarist Anders Nyström comments “We did three North American tours in support for ’Dead End Kings’ and it’s been three and a half years since the last one when we toured with Cult Of Luna, so having already embraced the new cycle of ’The Fall Of Hearts’ over here, we are eager to once again cross the Atlantic to continue from where we left off and to reap what we planted over there.”

Vocalist Jonas Renkse introduces the bands they have chosen to join them on the tour “We are very excited to finally announce our headline tour in North America for The Fall of Hearts. Also invited for this run are post-rock titans Caspian and young, promising act Uncured. Come out and celebrate the downfall of hearts (and everything else) with us!”

The Details: Katatonia is truly a band of experts when it comes to bringing intense levels of melancholy and atmosphere to their music and of course their live shows. I’ve caught them a number of times over the years and have been impressed each and every time. Their latest album is entitled “Dethroned and Uncrowned” and thankfully they will be hitting NYC hard with a show at Irving Plaza. They’ll be joined by Cult Of Luna, Tesseract and Intronaut so it’s clear that entertainment is high on the docket for this one. Now thanks to the awesome folks at Livenation, some lucky PiercingMetal fans will be seeing this show for absolutely free. Read more below on how this works.
