Hibria Cancels North American Tour

Unleashing a self-titled album last month via Test Your Metal Records, Brazil's Hibria was supposed to tour both the USA and Canada this September and October in support of the release, but due to visa issues the trek has been postponed.

This tour would have included an appearance at Prog Power USA XVI on September 11 - a festival which has already experienced several other dropouts, including Persefone and Anubis Gate. Test Your Metal Records comments on Hibria's tour snag:

"Some very unfortunate news in the world of metal. For reasons beyond our control Hibria will not be able to join the upcoming North American tour set to take place Sept/Oct 2015. Due to major issues with the USCIS and immigration visa's will not be issued in time to take part in the Canadian and US shows including their appearance at PPUSA.

"As you may know, the USCIS system was hacked a couple months ago and it has caused us nothing but problems for the whole underground music scene. After countless weeks fighting the system, countless extra fees paid and trying to get answers from the USCIS we are forced to throw in the towel and post pone HIBRIA's NA tour until a later date."

Persefone Dropped From ProgPower USA

ProgPower USA promoter Glenn Harveston announced that Andorra's Persefone is the latest band to be cancelled from the 2015 roster, in part due to visa issues. The USCIS has reared its ugly head causing the most issues since 2009 for the annual festival.

Harveston explains: "Unfortunately, this situation is not a simple as the Morgana Lefay cancellation, although the visa process is once again at the root of things. It is no secret now the USCIS center in Vermont is running 4-6 weeks behind their normal schedule assuming there is no RFE (request for evidence). We technically still have three weeks we can wait to receive these visas and then schedule the mandatory interviews. However, Persefone booked a European tour in June with the assumption they would have completed the interviews prior to kicking off their tour. They cannot complete any interviews while on tour. I requested they wait until after the tour and then complete the interviews as there was still possibly time. I was informed the day job of one of the band members prevents him from traveling to Madrid during that time frame, especially with no specific date to schedule currently. Thus, I am left with no choice but to cancel the band now.

"I know these types of explanations are frustrating to you, the fans. There is simply nothing that can be done. In the immortal words of the great American poet, Jimmy Buffett, 'Breathe in..Breathe Out..Move On.' Please know that there is no animosity between the band and myself. I truly understand and empathize with their situation. I wish the band nothing but the best and will continue to support them in the future."

Within hours of the announcement, Canada's Unleash the Archers was added to the bill. The latest roster list is as follows: More...

We already knew what to expect from each other and it contributed a lot for us to write this new work. It is our most daring album. We experienced new influences and they made this album to sound so fresh. We really feel we have started heading to a new level as a band.”

Jeff Scott Soto To Replace Morgana Lefay At PPUSA

Legendary hard rock/metal vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (Talisman, T.S.O., ex-Yngwie Malmsteen) has been confirmed for the sold-out ProgPower USA festival this year in Atlanta, Georgia, replacing Sweden's Morgan Lefay, who became the latest victim of the USICS Visa System. In a special performance, Jeff will celebrate his entire 30 year career at the festival performing songs from many of his bands along the way, including Talisman, Yngwie Malmsteen, Axel Pell Rudi, W.E.T., Rock Star, as well as his solo releases.

Jeff stated: "Having known about the ProgPower USA fest for years, I'm proud to be invited to present the ONLY US show this year with my 30th anniversary show! Me and the boys couldn't be more excited to rock Atlanta!"

Promoter Glenn Harveston added: "I’m honestly still in awe Jeff has graciously stepped up to the plate to help us out at the last minute. I can say I have never had such an amazing and quick conversation with an artist when it comes to booking a band. That is not only a sign of a true professional, but someone wanting to perform for our festival audience. Nothing fires up this crowd more than knowing a legendary name like Jeff Scott Soto actually wants to be in Atlanta. I'd also like to thank Sun Hill Management for the great response time."

Jeff Scott Soto recently took part in the sold out T.S.O./Savatage two stage spectacle at Wacken this past weekend. His latest solo release "Inside the Vertigo," under the monikor Soto, was released by earMusic back in January. More...
