Watain Drop Off North American Tour With Mayhem & Midnight

Watain will no longer be joining Mayhem and Midnight on their spring North American tour. The band were forced to drop off the trek due to visa issues.

Watain issued the following statement:

“We regret to inform you all that, due to reasons entirely beyond our control, we’re forced to cancel our participation in the upcoming US Tour with Mayhem and Midnight, for which we were due to leave tomorrow.

We have just been informed that the US Embassy have decided to launch an additional, undisclosed “administrative process” in relation to Watain‘s visa applications. We’ve been told that this investigation could go on for months and that we might not get a reply until the tour is over. Since we have not been given any additional information about why this is taking place, how long it’ll take, or if visas will eventually be approved, it leaves us with no choice but to pull out of the tour.

The same embassy has previously approved our working visa applications for every US tour, each of the 8 times we have applied.

Preparing for a tour like this takes an enormous amount of work by the band and our crew. The merch has been produced, ticket buyers have made plans, and the crew relies on the jobs that the tour provides. It is a devastating blow to any band, but to the authorities in charge it seems to hold no significance.

To our loyal fans and followers; we had truly been looking forward to stand before you all again. We invested all we had for this one.

We are working hard on setting things straight and our intention is to re-schedule the North American dates for early 2023. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Finally, we wish Mayhem and Midnight a killer tour regardless.
/Watain“

Midnight To Release New Album “Let There Be Witchery” In March, Premiere New Song “Szex Witchery”

Midnight will be releasing a new album, titled “Let There Be Witchery,” on March 4. The effort’s first single, “Szex Witchery,” can be found below:

“Let There Be Witchery” Track Listing:

01. “Telepathic Nightmare”
02. “Frothing Foulness”
03. “In Sinful Secrecy”
04. “Nocturnal Molestation”
05. “More Torment”
06. “Let There Be Sodomy”
07. “Devil Virgin”
08. “Snake Obsession”
09. “Villainy Wretched Villainy”
10. “Szex Witchery”

Athenar commented:

“I always want it to be loud and nasty. That kinda thing never gets old with me. How funny will that look to see me at age 77 — if I reach that point — sitting on the porch blasting Hellhammer?”

“If I were to give actual good advice, I would say stay clear of anything to do with Midnight. But I’m not a rational thinker, so as usual, I will give terrible advice and say punish your earholes and play this album as loud as your stereo goes, go out to a gig and mingle with others that you don’t know, lick their faces and rub upon each other’s sweaty torsos to the hellish, neanderthalish noise of a band called Midnight! You gotta release your demons somehow! That’s why you should give a shit, or two.”
