Greenleaf Cancel North American Tour

Bummer news out of Sweden today in that Greenleaf have been forced to cancel their planned US tour. The run, which was slated to begin March 5 at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar, would’ve been the first for the band, and was to take place over two legs, with desert legends Yawning Man and fellow Swedes Truckfighters keeping company as Greenleaf supported their 2016 Napalm Records release, Rise Above the Meadow (review here), which was without question one of the best albums of last year.

On a purely selfish level, I’m sorry to see this news come out because it means I won’t get to see the band, but they leave open the possibility of making another attempt to get over later in 2017 or next year, and so at least the idea isn’t completely off the table as of now. Visa issues. As ever.

I haven’t seen word of whether Yawning Man will press forward with their intention to play the East Coast for the first time, or who will fill in on the Truckfighters run, if anybody, but when and if I hear, I’ll do my best to post accordingly.

Greenleaf‘s announcement and the list of canceled dates follows:

greenleaf tour off

GREENLEAF – North American Tour CANCELLED

We regret to inform everyone who was so excited to see us on our upcoming dates with Yawning Man and Truckfighters that due to complications with our visas we are very sad to say that we must cancel our appearances on this tour. We’ll do our best to solve this issue and appear on your shores later this year or in worst case in 2018.
And yes we know… this really sucks DONKEY BALLS.

All the best
Tommi Holappa, Sebastian Olsson, Arvid Jonsson and Hans Fröhlich

    Man….there are so many good bands in the stoner/space/heavy psych rock realm from over the pond and so few of them make it over here, which REALLY bums me out. Then when one make it, they cancel…does anyone know why they had to back out?
