An update on Sinergy's upcoming US touring activities from the group's official web site:
“Kimberly has spoken with Sinergy's U.S. booking agent about the best possibilities for their first tour in that region. After several delays due to Sinergy's other touring obligations, and a number of unsatisfying offers, a conclusion has finally been reached. Sinergy will most certainly be touring in the states in the autumn (in what their booking agent describes as 'the perfect tour for the band'). Currently their agent is on a business trip and will give the full details of this mystery tour when he gets back to the office. Stay tuned and sorry for the delay, (but that's rock n' roll for ya!).”
