Watain detained! The band had to cancel the first five shows of their North American tour, set to kick off tomorrow (April 11.) Visa issues are the culprit. "It's not the first time the law stands in our way trying to prevent us from doing our work, and just like all the previous times it will lay broken and humiliated eventually," the band said in a statement. "We are content we will be victorious, meanwhile we ask all our U.S. supporters to have patience and prepare themselves for the coming of Watain." You have been warned. [Earsplit PR Press Release]

Blessthefall were robbed in Montreal. The band issued a statement about what was jacked from their vehicle: "3 bags were stolen. Matt's plaid black and white Hurley backpack, Elliott's plain blac backpack and Dreds black Under Armor backpack. Contents were brand new MacBooks, iPods, a passport and the flipcam. So unfortunately there will be no tour video from this tour. If anyone has information about our stuff, please let us know. We were parked behind Foufs bar/club in Montreal." What a nightmare! We hope they get their shit back and soon. [Lambgoat]
