Death In The Forest Festival - 1349 And Withersoul Cancel Their Appearances

Norwegian black metallers 1349 have issued the following statement:

"Due to delays in the processing of the visa-application to enter the USA, 1349 will unfortunately have to cancel their appearance at the Death In The Forest festival, scheduled to find place tomorrow 20'th of may in New York. We've done everything in our power and have followed every procedure to make this happen, and this matter is out of our hands. It is with great dissapointment that we have to announce this, and we share with the fans the frustration this causes- this is mutual from our side."

Withersoul have also been forced to cancel their appearance:

As much as we hate to do this, but Withersoul has cancelled from being
on the festival. We've talked to TJ and informed him of our cancellation. We can't risk driving 400 plus miles each way for a festival that has been teetering on the edge of cancellation and constant replacements all week long. Also the fact we have no hotel reservations (plus we'd not be able to afford anything inside NYC either). Not to mention to have all those bands two stages for a 20 minute set isn't a good thing for a band that plays 10+ minute songs. This trip alone would have cost us well over 1000 dollars all together at it's current location. We have very set & limited finances and we can't risk coming up all that way for very little. If this would have happened a week earlier, something could have been arranged. We are all seriously bummed out over this, and have been looking forward to this for almost 6 months now...
We hope everything goes well for TJ Morris and Watchers Entertainment and everyone has a kickass time..."

The expected set times for the festival, which will take place today (May 20th) at Avalon in New York City, can be viewed here.

3 relocations, 2 cancellations and 1 lawsuit against their second venue - I'd really not like to be in the organizers' shoes.
All life begins with Nu and ends with Nu... This is the truth! This is my belief! ...At least for now.

Like anytime 1349 has to play somewhere it seems like they have to cancel because of visa problems ortravel issues. If you get to see them you are lucky.
