Discharge forced to reschedule U.S. tour‏

UK-based hardcore punk legends DISCHARGE have been forced to cancel their U.S. headlining tour, which was scheduled to kick-off tomorrow at the Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore.

“Due to circumstances beyond our control, our visas have been delayed and we are forced to postpone the immediately forthcoming tour dates in North America,” states the band. “FEAR NOT, however, as we are working diligently to reschedule these shows as QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE, and we WILL fulfill all shows. All tickets will be honored. Please stand by as we will announce new performance dates in the next few days!”

DISCHARGE are a British hardcore punk band formed in 1977. The band is characterized by a minimalistic approach to music and lyrics. A heavy, distorted and grinding guitar-driven sound and raw, shouted vocals similar to a political speech, with lyrics on anarchistic and pacifistic themes.

AllMusic calls the band’s sound a “high-speed noise overload” characterised by “ferocious noise blasts”. The band’s 1982 debut album, Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing, went to number two in the UK Indie Charts and number 40 in the UK Album Charts. In the early 1980s, numerous DISCHARGE singles and EPs landed in the top 10 of the UK Indie Charts, including the 1981 EP Why? and the 1982 single ‘State Violence State Control’. Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing paved the way for thrash metal, black metal, crust punk, grindcore and various extreme metal subgenres. The musical genre of d-beat is named after DISCHARGE and their distinctive drumbeat.
DISCHARGE released their new album End Of Days, on May 13 in North America.
