San Francisco's Black Cobra has unfortunately been denied access into the United States' northern neighboring country.

While amidst its current North American tour -- which was nearly entirely comprised of Canadian dates with Black Cobra co-headlining alongside Anciients and opening support from Black Wizard and Lo Pan -- the band was denied entry into the country.

Having invested thousands of dollars into merch for the tour, the band decided to tough it out and try again at a different access point, where again Black Cobra was denied, with no explanation, and after thorough inspections of vehicle and gear. This forced the band to return to California instead of performing in more than twenty cities across Canada.

Black Cobra today issued the following collective statement to their fans on the debacle: "As many of you already know, we were denied entry at the border of Canada. Because of the financial strain this has put on us, we were forced to cancel the remaining tour dates in the US as well. In the meantime, we will continue working on our forthcoming record and are looking into booking another tour in the US. We apologize to our fans and thank you for your continued support."

New U.S. Black Cobra tour actions will be confirmed immediately and announced in the coming days; no Canadian dates will be scheduled. Stay tuned for further transmissions.

I have capitalized the pertinent words. Two entry points, no explanation? Uhhhh huh. Or is it no explanation that you want to enlighten your fans with? This isn't Iran guys. My guess is someone has a rap sheet and they don't feel the need to bring up that little tidbit when venting to the media.
