As you guys know,
We were NOT able to enter the USA by circumstances, and went back to Japan today. So unfortunately we had to cancel the West Coast tour with Noothgrush. How flastrated!!
We are sorry for Noothgrush guys, Nonotear Bookings, people of each place who looked forward to our show and supported us. So sorry...
We will certainly go to the US West Coast again sometime. Please wait until then!!
Uchino, Satoshi, Tokita and Atake
We're very sorry to announce that the Coffins/Noothgrush West Coast tour that was to start today has been cancelled due to Coffins being denied entry into the US yesterday. We wish so much that we could have done the tour anyways but do not have our own means to do so at this time on our own. One show that is still happening is in Oakland on Thursday at the new Oakland Metro Operahouse so please come and support, it's Lycus' record release show. Dispirit will be replacing Coffins on the bill and the door cost will be reduced. Thanks so much & Hail Coffins!
As we're sure you all know by now, Coffins was denied entry into the US yesterday and have been deported back to Japan. All dates with Noothgrush are canceled.
We are still performing this Friday at the Starlite Lounge in Sacramento with our friends Battle Hag. The show is now free.
This night is a celebration for a number of reasons. We want to show our gratitude to all of you who have helped us thus far. We finally have our records in hand and those will be for sale.
With heavy hearts, we must also say goodbye to two members. This Friday's show will be Shann and Matt's last show with us. They have been staples in both creating and maintaining this band, and we will truly miss them. We wish them all the best in any future endeavors.
All of our announced shows are still happening, and we have a new line up and new material in the works. We look forward to seeing you Friday.
Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-
