June 3rd 2009
REGARDING USA TOUR
The situation with MARDUK not having performed during the first half of
Blackenedfest is due to one member of the band not having received his visa
yet. It is not a ‘denied’ visa. The band filed for a P-1 non-immigrant work
visa, which is required for a band to play in the states. The visa was
APPROVED by the United States Government’s Homeland Security Office.

Furthermore, as required, the band members each individually went to their
visa appointments at the U.S. embassy in Stockholm for the standard
interview, at which point the persons handling the band’s applications
informed the band that there was no further action needed and that they
should expect their passports in the mail with the P-1 visa attached.

Everyone in the band received theirs except Mortuus – ”There was no
missing document, as earlier stated by Earsplit, but a legal document in
Swedish that the US Embassy one day (!) prior to departure informed us that
they needed to have ”professionally translated” into English in order to
finalize the visa – even though we specifically asked them months earlier
if it was ok that some documents were in Swedish; their response being: ”Yes,
there is no problem, we have people here that speak Swedish”. Note that a
translation from a certified agency (which is a mandatory) takes up to a week
- and the Embassy is well aware of this. So, why they waited until the very
last day to give us this information, or why the other member’s documents
needed no translation, one can only imagine” /Mort.

We are currently waiting each day for the passport to be returned to Mortuus
with the visa stamp. The embassy is aware of the urgency of this matter and
we expect the band to join the tour in progress any day now.

MARDUK are prepared to make up the shows they missed immediately after
Blackenedfest ends. These dates will be announced shortly.
