WASTEFALL Explains PROGPOWER USA Cancellation

Greek progressive act WASTEFALL has issued the following statement regarding the cancelllaton of their previously announced performance at the ProgPower USA VII festival, set to take place in September at Earthlink Live In Atlanta, Georgia:

"We unfortunately have to announce that WASTEFALL will not be participating in this year's ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta, USA on September 16th. When applying for the visa to be able to perform in USA, we ran into some unexpected problems with the Greek authorities, which have made it impossible for us to go. We're really sorry about this, as we know a lot of fans had been looking forward to seeing us in USA for the first time ever, and we ourselves had been looking very much forward to the whole experience of our first gig outside of Greece. We would like to extend our gratitude to both our label and management for doing what was possible in order to help us solve the problems, and especially we would like to thank Glenn Harveston of ProgPower USA for helping us beyond the call of duty on trying to make ends meet. We really hope to be able to go to ProgPower USA another year and make up for this."
