Underoath commented:

“We dig Periphery and Loathe a ton so we asked them if they wanted to do this. They said yes. 2023 is gonna be wild and this is just the start. Presale and VIP tickets are on sale TODAY at 12pm ET with code BLINDOBEDIENCE

We wanted to do something really different for our VIP people on this tour so check this out:?

We’re working on new music (as always). Some songs are done. Some are close. Some have just gotten started… but we wanted to find a way to bring you inside that creative process. At every VIP meet & greet on the Blind Obedience tour, we’re going to be having a listening party of unreleased music we’re currently working on (in various stages of completion) *as well as* never before heard demos of songs you know well. You’ll get a taste of what’s to come as well as see how far songs you already love had to come to get to your ears. We think this is going to be rad for us *and* you because if one of our favorite band was doing it, we’d jump on it (which is always our mindset going into this sort of thing).

Loathe Cancel European/UK Dates To Focus On New Album

Loathe have cancelled their upcoming European/UK shows. The band will be using the time to focus on their new album.

The group issued the following statement:

“People of United Kingdom and Europe,

After much painstaking deliberation, it is with regret that we have made the very difficult decision to cancel our upcoming September and October headline dates.

We are currently in the penultimate stages of completing our new album, which the tour was initially booked to promote, and believe that opening up our time to focus entirely on the music is the correct thing to do, as using this time in September and October will allow us to complete the recording process.

We recognise that these cancellations are frustrating and we are deeply sorry for any inconvenience caused with purchases already made in ways of travel arrangements and tickets.

All ticket purchases will be refunded at your point of purchase.

Thank you for your endless support and understanding.

– Kadeem, Erik, Feisal and Sean“

Northlane Cancel North American Tour With Silent Planet, Loathe, & Avoid

Northlane have cancelled their North American tour with Silent Planet, Loathe and Avoid. The trek was unable to move forward due to visa issues.

Northlane commented:


Refunds available at point of purchase.

For Australian bands, touring internationally has always been difficult. It’s a costly and risky undertaking, but for over a decade we’ve managed to make it work because we love playing for our legion of fans around the globe.

The USA has always been particularly tough due to the arduous and incredibly expensive working visa process. Despite a sharp rise in application costs, we applied for our visas and followed the standard processes, but in the post-COVID era times have changed and our petition has faced unprecedented processing delays.

As it stands, the wait time for a visa appointment at the US consulate in Melbourne is 220 days. Yes, you read that correctly. Our immigration lawyer has literally scoured the globe looking for consulates with openings. We’ve explored undertaking appointments in both Indonesia and the UK among other countries. While we were prepared to eat the extreme costs to make the tour happen, in the end we just couldn’t get the appointments we required.

With options running out fast, we were put in touch with a Federal government official yesterday and they are being inundated with similar situations to ours from dozens of other Australian artists. Even though the department is doing their absolute best to expedite select cases with the US consulate here, our case did not make any progress.

Knowing full well that the longer we left this decision, the greater impact it would have on everyone involved in the tour, we unfortunately had to make the difficult decision today to cancel the entire Obsidian North American tour. This cancellation also unfortunately extends to the Canadian shows as just doing these isn’t viable.

We’ve taken our time to explain this in the most detail possible, so you can understand the impossible lengths we went to in order to try and solve it. Unfortunately for us this situation was unwinnable. We’d like to thank our incredible fans from North America, you’ve been patient since 2019, we trust you’ll be patient until we can make it back to play for you again. We’ve gone to the most insane lengths and done beyond our best. Our hearts are broken too.

In order to soften the blow best we can for the support bands, we’d ask if you could kindly check out their online merch stores and grab whatever you can:
