JESU will finally be joining ISIS on tour beginning this Sunday, March 11th, following some troubles getting the proper paperwork for entering the U.S.Â JESU mainman Justin K. Broadrick issued the following statement on the matter:
“The impending permits/visas finally cleared for JESU this week; the unforeseen backlog at the U.S embassy in London had somewhat reduced enabling the band to be interviewed and be issued their work permits/visas.
“This means that JESU will perform its first live show in the U.S this Sunday, March 11th in Washington DC at the 9.30 Club and will complete the rest of the tour with ISIS from there on in, performing at the Hydra Head Showcase at SXSW, Austin, Texas on the 15th March along the way.
“Many thanks for your patience and huge apologies to those that missed JESU at earlier shows due to these unforeseen circumstances. A JESU headline tour of the U.S over the next 9 - 12 months will hopefully compensate somewhat, especially since JESU now have permits/visas for 12 months!
“Also thank you for all the kind words and messages we have received, we wish we could reply to them all….”
