The Accused Comments On Canceled Tour Date

The Accused has issued the following statement about missing their October 23rd tour date:

"An October 23rd Port Angeles, WA concert by The Accused was cut-short and foiled Friday when extremely high winds over the waters of Puget Sound forced Washington State Ferries officials to shut-down ferry service to the area, which in turn prohibited one of the band members of the night's headliners The Accused from accessing that part of Washington State.

"Located about 2 hour's drive Northwest of Seattle, Port Angeles, WA is located in a remote, densely-forrested region of the Evergreen State known as the Olympic Penninsula. Access to the town is limited, with only two main roads leading in or out; from either old Highway 101 west of the rugged, snow-capped Olympic Mountain range, or via the scenic Peninsula State highway--the route which the stranded band member was preparing to take.

"Prohibiting this veteran Washingtonian access to the highway leading into Pt. Angeles, however was the impromptu cancelling of the 35 minute Pt. Townsend - Keystone ferry ride across the Puget Sound; an order placed by the ferry Captain merely minutes before the guitarist's arrival at the dock. With a useless pre-paid reservation ticket in his hand and no other practical way to access the town the distraught musician had to call and tell the rest of the band that he was stuck and couldn't get to the show.

"The supporting bands which included Seattle's Streetwalker, filled the capacity crowd with music in an attempt to calm frayed tempers and make the most of the stormy evening. High winds on the rough chilly waters of the Sound can make ferry trips quite adventurous as waves often crash across the ship's bow, splashing hoods of cars, giant ocean swells rolling and rocking the huge iron hulled workhorses up and down like a cork floating in the bathtub. It is up to the Captain of each vessel to determine whether or not to continue ferry service across navigatable waters in Puget Sound. No warning or advanced notice is required by law.

"The Accused are working with the Port Angeles promoter to re-schedule a performance in Port Angeles, WA for a later date according to sources. Details on this still to come."
