Did neither band get their visa or just one member? Just curious, because it may be useful knowledge at some point.
Do you have to apply for a working visa if you wanna play in the US?

To quote Metal Threat's FB: "It is with great regret that I must announce this. The Ruins of Beverast and Drowned have canceled their appearance at Metal Threat Fest 2016 and their mini US Tour. The bands decided after much consideration that coming to the US this time around would not be in their best interests. Visa paperwork was properly submitted, submitted well in advance, and given a verdict in an adequate amount time from USCIS. Everything that needed to be done was done to make sure that these bands got into to the US to perform. However, USCIS deemed both bands to be not internationally recognized bands and therefore had no right to play in the US. The bands even as of a week ago wanted to chance coming into the country, until they had spoken to a immigration lawyer and he advised that it would be very unwise for them to try and enter the country as they would most certainly be turned away and deported back to Germany because the USCIS petition denial. Naturally the bands took great consideration into what the lawyer had advised and opted to drop from the fest."

Thanks!

....and their lawyer was surely right! Trying to enter the country would most likely have been futile and resulted in none of them ever being able to enter the US ever!

This is insane. Their lawyer should've been able to present enough evidence to the contrary. Fuck, telling the USCIS to do a simple Google search could've set them straight. There must be something else at play.

Anyway, very bummed to read this.

Here's to next time. Cheers.

Just come in through the southern border and play. Surely then there'd be no problem. Laughing

No there isn't! Believe me, both bands were more than looking forward to playing those gigs, I'll leave it at that...

Such a shame, I'm in NYC this very date end had plans of jumping out of a cake at Vitus as a surprise. Shame.

Oh, I'm sure of that. I meant that the USCIS must be fucking with them for some reason. Anyway, too bad.

America is an asshole. Fuck man. I was so looking forward to seeing Drowned. I was going to bang so hard for all Viscera Terrae tracks. Fucking suck a rock, NCIS or whatever the fuck you're called.

Bands should have snuck in across the southern border... then they'd get to be undocumented musicians and could apply for benefits too

This is the last fucking time I pre-order tickets for a show in New York.

Third time is the charm. I've learned my lesson.
