Exhumed - Denied Entry Into Canada, Cancel Dates In Montreal And Toronto

Entering Canada has been rough for a few bands lately. Now Exhumed also had the same problem. The band didn't perform at Montreal last night because they were denied entry into the country. The band will also miss tonight's show in Toronto and perform in Buffalo, NY, instead. These Canadian shows were part of a North American tour with Municipal Waste and Napalm Death.

The band released the following statement: "We are super-bummed that the Canadian border patrol has denied us entry to their otherwise fine country today and forced us to cancel our Halloween show in Montreal. We even had ridiculous costumes prepared! We are doing everything in our power to sort out the paperwork to make the Toronto show tomorrow, but it doesn't look too likely."

"In case we are forced to cancel Toronto as well, we would be stoked to jump on a metal/punk show in the Buffalo/Cleveland area tomorrow. Please contact our agent, Dan Rozenblum at dan@thepantheonagency.com. We will do our best keep everybody up on the situation. In the meantime, cheers to our friends in Municipal Waste, Napalm Death, Vektor who will tear Montreal several new orifices tonight!"

Update from the band: "Here's an update: Exhumed headlining tomorrow, November 1st in Buffalo NY at the Funeral Home - 366 Ontario Street! C'mon dull your post-Halloween hangover with us! $7, Doors at 7. Cheers!"

Must resist making the following joke.. oh whatever, If Seth Putnam was alive, he would have written a song called "Denied Entry Into Canada"

I know firsthand though how disappointing canceled shows can be, and imo the best solution would be just to laugh about it.
Sing me a song, you're a singer
Do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil.

No one in future will perform in Canada if they keep rejecting the bands like this.

It is a national border and if you don't have your passport and work permit then fuck off. It is not that hard to get your paperwork in order unless you are a knucklehead and it looks like a number of bands can't seem to get their shit together. Canada has always been a more law-abiding country than the USA. Look at how the USA hired illegal Mexicans by the millions to do cheap labor and now they are crying like little bitches cuz the economy is shit so blame the brown man.
