There’s some unfortunate news for fans of Death From Above 1979 in the southeast region of the United States. The Canadian dancepunk duo have been forced to cancel a series of upcoming tour dates in support of their newest album, The Physical World. The cancellations include their upcoming date at Third Man Records, where they were scheduled to do a direct-to-acetate recording of their live performance. The culprit seems to be visa issues. In a tweet, the band says, “Due to some super unsexy bureaucratic immigration/visa issues, we’ve had to postpone/cancel 4 shows this month.” Bummer. More details about the cancellations are in the image below, which accompanied the original tweet.
Canceled Death from Above 1979 tour dates:
7/16 Nashville, TN – Third Man Records
7/17 Norfolk, VA – NorVA Theatre
7/18 Richmond, VA – The National
7/20 Washington, D.C. – Rock ‘n’ Roll Hotel Theatre
