Crisix announced the cancellation of all the tour dates they had scheduled in the United States, because they did not have a visa to enter the country.
The band issued the following statement:
“We are very sorry to inform all our friends in the United States that we have been forced to cancel all tour dates in the country.
The reason: The United States Immigration office has slowed down the process of approving our P1 Artist Visas. It’s a process we’ve been working on for seven months, and we’re very disappointed that despite this amount of time and working with professionals, we weren’t able to finish it in time for our US shows. It is not only an emotional loss, because we are looking forward to the return of one of our favorite festivals, FTA Open Air, it is also our first time in Los Angeles and we have a very special concert organized by Puscifer The Store.
In addition, the financial losses are a hard blow, as we can easily count the amount of $15,000 in legal fees, paperwork, lost flight tickets, and canceled shows. This amount of money is a hard blow for a band like Crisix, which, as some already know, is a completely self-managed band, something we defend and appreciate but in situations like this the damage is greater because we have the weakest support network. Therefore, we also want to talk to you who have supported us on many occasions, to recover from this situation. We encourage those who want to buy our merch at shop.crisixband.com or make a donation at paypal.me/crisixband to recoup the losses and reinvest them in the future to make these shows we promise to reschedule immediately. as we can.. “Again we regret everything that happened and thank everyone for understanding the situation.”
