Hypocrisy Issue Update On Touring U.S. In 2010
December 29, 2009
Legendary Swedish death metallers, Hypocrisy, have issued the following statement:

"It seems Santa has come early this year for Hypocrisy! As previously reported, we were forced to cancel our recently scheduled tour with Ensiferum due to problems with work visas. Today we received the good news that we are now all cleared to enter the country. We are currently planning to come back to the US sometime in early 2010! We will let everyone know very soon when the tour and line up is confirmed. Thanks to all our fans for supporting Hypocrisy all these years!"

Hypocrisy had enlisted the help of Children Of Bodom guitarist/frontman Alexi Laiho to temporarily fill the vacant 2nd guitarist spot on their tour alongside Ensiferum, Ex Deo, Blackguard and Swashbuckle.

Previously Hypocrisy had been in holding mode, fully expecting to join the tour that was already in progress at the time at a later date. In an earlier statement the band explained their situation:

"Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are forced to stay home until U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services process and authorize our working visas. This is the first time the band has faced a situation like this and it's extremely frustrating, as well as depressing, since the last thing we want to do is disappoint our loyal fans who have waited years to see us live in the US. We filed for our visas with plenty of time, but as some probably don't know, the US government has changed its rules when it comes to visas issued to artists so it's become tougher. Even if we have already toured the US numerous times."

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1991
HOME TOWN: Sweden
MEMBERS:
Peter T䧴gren (vocals/guitars)
Andreas Holma (guitars)
Mikael Hedlund (bass)
Horgh (drums)

Let?s not wonder how HYPOCRISY mastermind Peter T䧴gren finds the time to be a legendary producer (in his ABYSS STUDIOS) and write songs for both his bands PAIN and HYPOCRISY. Let?s just rejoice in Mr. T䧴gren`s new album! And this is a ?Virus? we all wish to be infected by...?Virus? is probably the most mature creation HYPOCRISY have released so far. Combining pure Death Metal stylings and grinding slow tunes with catchy melodies we all learned to love from ?Roswell 47?. This album mirrors the whole evolution of HYPOCRISY. Brutal tracks like ?Warpath? should make every old-school Death Metal fan happy, while ?Fearless? or ?A Thousand Lies? feature guitar harmonies still unheard on this planet. The right punch in the face is delivered by drum icon Horgh (ex ? IMMORTAL) who recently joined the HYPOCRISY folds. All in all, this is a new HYPOCRISY album that is bound to become another Death Metal classic!The official birth year of HYPOCRISY dates back to 1991 when the band got signed to Nuclear Blast and released their massive debut album ?Penetralia?. ?Osculum Obscenum? and ?The Fourth Dimension? were the next milestones in crushing, extreme Death Metal. More melodic elements filtered through these releases and would eventually become the major trademark of HYPOCRISY together with aliens and extraterrestrial phenomena inspired lyrics. These three albums marked the first steps in the band?s career and earned them a high profile within the European underground. ?Abducted? and its immortal hymn ?Roswell 47? further defined the band?s status as one of the most innovative and remarkable Metal bands in Europe. Ironically though the big breakthrough came with the split of the band: the 1997 album ?The Final Chapter?. Its killer melodies and hymn-styled songs had a much wider appeal. At this point Peter T䧴gren wanted to put an end to HYPOCRISY in order to concentrate on his extremely successful Electro / Industrial Metal project PAIN. Encouraged by the great responses, the band got back to record ?Hypocrisy?. Tours all across Europe further established the great reputation of Peter and Co. and several shows in the USA also enthused the American audience to the HYPOCRISY cult. Following the release of ?Into The Abyss?, HYPOCRISY put together a ?best of? album titled ?10 Years Of Chaos And Confusion?. The album featured a fan-elected track-list with all the hits of the last decade. 2002?s ?Catch 22? defined a new dimension of sound for HYPOCRISY with progressive and rock influences and led HYPOCRISY into a modern era of more fashionable death metal.With ?The Arrival? the sound experiments came to an end ? and saw HYPOCRISY return to their roots.
