Exhumed Comments On Being Denied Entry For Canadian Shows

As was previously announced, California gorelords Exhumed were forced to cancel several dates on their tour with Napalm Death and Municipal Waste due to Canadian border patrol issues.

Elaborates vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey of the situation: “If you have a DUI, like four out of six people in our tour party do, the Canadian border patrol will charge you $200 per person to obtain a ‘temporary resident permit’ to be in the country, or, if they feel like being dicks, they can arbitrarily decide to just not let you in. We’ve never had an issue getting in, but this time they decided to be dicks. The woman we spoke to at customs informed us that we had received too many TRPs in too short of a time and would not be able to apply for any further TRPs until we had all completed their extremely convoluted rehabilitation process. We had to sign documents that legally bound us to leave the country immediately, and stated that if we were found in Canada after being denied entry, we would be arrested. Gnarly.

"Anyway, we looked into other options to get in to the country, but unfortunately there's no way we can do the Canadian dates on this tour. We're super bummed to not get to see all our friends in the Great White North. Hopefully we can get this all straightened out -- which means loads money to an immigration lawyer -- before the new record comes out. In the meantime our dauntless booking agent, Dan Rozenblum, is lining up some shows for us on our trek out west to rejoin the Waste / Napalm traveling extravaganza. So come on out and party with us in some seriously down and dirty, tiny and intimate venues. This is our last tour for the year, and we want to make the most of it. If you have a show we could jump on between St. Paul and Seattle, hit up our agent at dan@thepantheonagency.com.”

Exhumed recently completed recording the follow-up to 2011’s "All Guts, No Glory" full-length. The as-yet-untitled long player was recorded at Arcane Digital Recording in Chandler, Arizona with Ryan Butler (Misery Index, Landmine Marathon, Phobia). All drums were tracked at Trench Studios in Corona, California with John Haddad (Hirax, Abysmal Dawn, Intronaut). The offering will be unleashed by Relapse Records sometime next year.
