Sound of Contact postpones US tour

From their website:

"Dear friends and fans of Sound of Contact!

Due to delays and complications from the US embassy in the UK, Simon Collins and key SOC personnel were unable to obtain work visas in time to perform with Sound of Contact in the upcoming YEStival in Camden, New Jersey this Saturday.

We also deeply regret to inform everyone that as of today, we must postpone our North American tour this August / September until Spring next year.

Logistical issues derived from VISA complications and low ticket sales in a few locations have impacted on our ability to effectively honor all dates at this time.

We sincerely apologize for the disappointment and potential inconvenience that this may cause.

Please know that we have every intention of re-grouping and re-scheduling as many of the dates as possible. We look forward to seeing you all next year!

Simon, Dave and Matt"

Re: Sound of Contact postpones US tour

I had tickets to to see SoC, along with Francis Dunnery, Jolly and Edisons Children, as a NJPH event. I received this sad news earlier today followed by a PayPal email WRT a refund of the ticket price. I would have liked to have seen the other three acts, especially, since I know Edisons Children so well.

Very disappointed, to say the least. No drive to San Diego for us. The ticket refund - who knows. Just sad and hope it works out for them in the Spring.

No visas needed for Herd of Instinct members unless Texas secedes from the union before Sept 1st.
