Amagortis Cancels U.S. Tour

Switzerland's Amagortis has issued the following announcement about canceling the previously scheduled run of U.S. tour dates:

"It is with the deepest regret that I have to inform you that we were forced to cancel our appearance on the Brutal Domination Tour, as well as the Las Vegas Deathfest and the Central Illinois Metalfest. Three of my band mates were stopped at U.S. customs, who then found out our bands name, googled it and hence found out about the tour. Since they did not have work visas and weren't able to get them by the start of the tour they could not enter the USA and we will not be able to partake on the tour.

"Believe me: we tried absolutely everything, but without success. U.S. customs are a fucking bitch and it was just beyond our power to change the outcome of this situation... I would like to apologize to all the promoters and fans who were counting on us and who were excite to see us! I can't even begin to describe how disappointed we are and how much money we wasted on this whole thing. More...
