Clan of Xymox today announced the postponement of its 13-date North American tour planned for March, saying the ongoing partial shutdown of the U.S. government has meant the band’s work visas won’t be processed in time. New dates in November will be announced soon.

The band, which also mounted a U.S. tour last November, had been slated to open its next run of stateside shows March 9 in Denver, and was to play the midwest and East Coast, as well as two concerts in Canada.

On Thursday, Clan of Xymox posted on Facebook that the tour would be postponed until November:

“The main reason is that due to unforeseen circumstances related to the U.S. government shutdown, our work visas would not be able to be processed in time. We would simply not being allowed to enter the country to tour. We truly love and appreciate our American & Canadian fans and want to continue our shows over there. We are assured that all tickets purchased will be valid for November or you will get a refund if needed. We hope we will see you then. Yours truly!”

See the canceled dates below; we’ll post the new itinerary as soon as it’s announced.
