Distant members unable to enter U.S. for tour
Dutch deathcore band Distant are currently touring the U.S. with Suicide Silence and Carnifex, however, they are without their full line-up as half the group have yet to receive their visas. Thus far, only drummer Jan Mato and vocalist Alan Grnja have been able to enter the country.
Distant have issued the following statement:
"As you might have noticed, we are not playing our USA tour in full line up. Only our drummer Jano and our vocalist Alan were lucky enough to make it to the USA. We experienced major visa issues and with extreme luck they managed to get theirs just days before their flights were scheduled. Unfortunately Nouri and Vlad were less lucky and still don't have their visas. We started the whole process way ahead and still, beyond our control, failed to receive them in time.
"While the band is still playing the whole USA tour, this situation is extremely demotivating and hard for us and it is affecting us badly. If there is anyone that knows somebody at the American Embassy in The Netherlands that could be of help, please get in contact with us!"
