Venom Inc. had to drop out of their headlining North American tour because of visa issues.
Today, the band released a statement addressing the issue, and say they will still try to make it for West Coast dates in 2023.
You can read the statement below:
“It is with great frustration and regret that we must announce that our planned East Coast U.S. run must be pushed into 2023.
In the meantime, we will plan the West Coast dates to happen earlier in 2023.
Due to the backlog caused by the Covid-19 situation, the US Embassy in Portugal is unable to schedule an appointment interview for a visa before mid-November.
Although we have been pushing for weeks and have been passed with all paperwork required and fees paid, the government is the one who holds the wand over us and has refused to expedite us in this instance so we are left with no choice but to postpone.
Some things are beyond our control so we apologize but rest assured we will hit hard, heavy, and loud in 2023 so hold fast and we will see you soon!!”
