Godflesh reschedule U.S. tour, album releaseGodflesh has officially postponed its U.S. tour until April 2014 due to visa issues, with the cancelled dates already rescheduled. The tour will now begin on April 10 in New York City’s Irving Plaza, running through April 24. All tickets for cancelled shows will be honored at the new dates, according to Ticketmaster. Justin Broadrick of Godflesh addresses fans’ reactions: “The reason for all this is once again visa issues; as is often the case with UK and European artists wishing to work/perform in the US, it is a laborious process, and it was stalled by the U.S. immigration office, the USCIS, that reviews and processes these visas. Clearly, and before the accusations come in, and I have already been made aware of several kneejerk reactions to this news, we, as a band, are not at the helm of this process… Please, understand this – it’s bureaucracy to blame here, not the band or it’s agent/legal team; we all wish for the band to perform… do not be ignorant and narrow minded about this situation, and understand that we obviously want to perform, and will perform.” Broadrick’s full statement can be read through the Godflesh website. In related news, the new Godflesh album has also been postponed to coincide with the tour.
