Hypocrisy was set to tour in support of their recently released album The End of Disclosure. The album was released in March of this year via Nuclear Blast. The End of Disclosure is the bands 12th studio album and was a follow up to the bands 2009 effort A Taste of Extreme Divinity.
Hypocrisy stated: “As we were getting ready to go get our visas stamped and ready for the tour we were informed that the earliest we could go initially was sometime in July,” explains guitarist/vocalist Peter Tägtgren. “We then immediately continued to call them, got the label to help with some letters, and put our lawyer to work etc. The best that got us was an appointment in late June. This is a HUGE blow to us, to our fans and everyone who has supported Hypocrisy in North America. Sometimes there are battles you can’t win, and this is one of them. We will be back, I can promise that!”
