Archspire have cancelled the September leg of their South American tour. Despite this, there is some good news as the band have also confirmed that they are writing a new album.
The band issued the following statement:
“Attention South American Fans:
We have decided to pull out of our upcoming South American tour.
There were many factors that influenced our decision, but suffice to say we felt some inconsistencies between our expectations and reality on our recent tour in Mexico, El Salvador, and Guatemala. We have no reason to assume this tour would be any different, given it was booked by the same tour agency. Some basic needs of ours weren’t provided, including the quality/availability of gear, proper crew, merchandise issues, and some business that just didn’t sit well with us.
This is our livelihood. As such we need to stand up for our best interests.
Until this week we do not have a history of pulling out of tours, but unfortunately these two announcements came out within a few days of each other. It saddens us to let fans down, especially those who are so passionate about the music we write.
As a band, we’ll remain at home writing album number five during the remainder of 2022. We are driven as ever to write new music that (hopefully) surpasses your expectations, and we thank you for your understanding.
