Until an issue with the U.S. Embassy and visas, Black metal bands Mayhem and Watain were set to join forces on a North American tour entitled “The Sanguine Sodomy of North America.” Now, the Swedish-born band Watain has had to pull out from the tour.
Watain have their seventh full-length album The Agony & Ecstasy of Watain set for release in April 2022, so the tour would have been an opportunity to spread the word. Rather than looking forward to seeing Watain live, fans can enjoy their new singles and look forward to the April album.
Watain explained in an announcement on Facebook that they were given little information on the issue, and the elusive “administrative process” may not end until well after their tour dates. The tour will go on with Mayhem and supporting act Midnight.
