Refused have been forced to cancel their upcoming US tour due to an “unexpected personal scheduling conflict”. The run was due to kick off next month, visiting Pomona, LA, Oakland, Portland and Seattle between 23rd – 28th November.
“America has always been way beyond kind to us and we were really looking forward to this up and coming tour but sometimes the plans of 5 people don’t come together as you want them to,” say the band in a statement.
“If you know us you know that we are a busy bunch and Refused is far from the only thing that we are working on in this hectic life.
“In between families and other jobs and projects(Kris is right now premiering his version of Rigolleto at Norrlandsoperan and Dennis just finished a week of touring with INVSN) it is sometimes hard to get the schedule to work as you want it to.
“A very unexpected personal scheduling conflict arose that we been trying hard to manoeuvre around but to no luck. For that we are very very sorry.
“We didn’t want to pull these dates but sometimes you are a stuck in between a rock and hard place. We hope that we can return and make it up for you sooner then later.”
Refused have been touring in support of their new album ‘Freedom’, released earlier this year. In August they featured on the cover of Upset – order your copy here.
