California gore/death metal band Exhumed cancelled show dates in Brazil this week with Aborted, due to unforeseen visa issues..

Vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey commented on the cancellation:

We are totally weakened to have to cancel our Brazilian dates. Due to our visa applications getting rejected, we cannot legally enter the country at this time -- in fact, they threatened to ban us from being there for a decade. We are doing everything we can to reschedule these dates as soon as possible. Due to the bullshit policies of U.S. immigration/customs and Brazilian customs' policy of reciprocity, our visas were refused by the Brazilian consulate before even being processed. We seriously and very sincerely apologize to all our friends in Brazil who wanted to see the band. We will do everything in our power to work with our agent, the promoter, and the immigration assholes in the U.S. and Brazil to get this squared away. This is a serious bummer. We will spend the extra week before heading to Europe looking at hot Brazilian chicks on the Internet instead of in real life and being really, really pissed off.”

Exhumed will kick off the 16-date "Grind Over Europe Tour" with Rotten Sound and Magrudergrind on February 24 and then head over to join Anaal Nathrakh for a short run of dates in the United Kingdom. From there, the band will head to the U.S. for a month-long U.S. tour with death metal icons Cannibal Corpse along with Abysmal Dawn and Arkaik.
