Attila Turned Away At The Canadian Border, Band To Miss "All Star Tour" Dates

Self-proclaimed "death metal party rockers" Attila have posted the following statement on its official Twitter account revealing that it has been denied entry into Canada due to felony legal issues involving frontman Chris Fronzak. The refusal from Canadian border patrol means the band will have to miss its Canadian dates on the ongoing "All Stars Tour."

"We are officially 'Outlawed' from Canada. Unfortunately we are unable to play the Canadian dates of All Stars. We tried everything in our power to make it work out, but the Canadian government won't approve @attilafronz to cross because of his felony charge. WE ARE VERY SORRY."

The band will be releasing its new album, titled "Outlawed," on August 16, 2011 through Artery Recordings and will contain 10 all-new tracks. The track listing for effort is available below with the first single released from the album, titled "Payback," available for streaming over at this location.

1. Outlawed
2. Light Me Up
3. Nothing Left To Say
4. Another Round
5. Nasty Mouth
6. Smokeout
7. Holler At Ya Boy
8. Sex, Drugs & Violence

True,ST. Any DWI conviction,your not getting in.Even if your a passenger,and your not driving. I learned that the hard way. My bud got denied entry because of a past dui. I was doing the driving. Customs is pretty strict on that.

All comments about the band aside, Canada's laws on entry are far too strict if one felony means BANNED FROM CANADA (which I think could be their next album title...)

Funny they didnt list what the charge was or if it was still pending. Which would mean that the guy wasn't allowed to leave the country anyway. Not to jump at Canada's defense, but try to get a job with a background check here if you have a prior felony. It's not just Canada. we tend to be pretty hard on our own lawbreakers as well. I also wonder what the U.S. policy is on allowing a Canadian felon into the country.

That kind of sh** happen too much. Vital Remains, Six Feet Under, singer of Within The Ruins, bassist of As Blood Runs Black, The Swords and Born Of Osiris got the same promblem just the past 2 month :( Couldn't go through. By the way mister Attilagonzalez , I believe the US is a lot hsrder on the borders than Canada. I don't think you should give any lesson about that to anyone
