Makthaverskan delay North American tour due to visa issues, drop off Brooklyn & Philly dates

Makthaverskan

Swedish post-punks Makthaverskan were supposed to begin their tour with Self Defense Family and Creative Adult this week, but unfortunately due to visa issues they’re not able to fly in as early as expected and are forced to drop off Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus show (3/4) and Philly’s Boot & Saddle show (3/5). Run for Cover label manager Tom Chiari says:

Makthaverskan are currently tied up in Sweden with visa complications and unfortunately their Wednesday, March 4th show at St.Vitus in Brooklyn and Thursday, March 5th at Boot & Saddle in Philadelphia with Self Defense Family and Creative Adult will not be possible under the current circumstances; the shows will go on without them. However our team is working hard to rectify the situation and get them over to the US in a timely manner in order to preserve as many tour dates as possible. Maja, Irma, Palle, Gustav and Hugo are looking forward to their US debut tour and appreciate all of the support

Luckily for those in NYC, the Studio at Webster Hall show on Sunday (3/8) is currently still on. You can still get tickets for that one, and you can get tickets to see just SDF/Creative Adult at Vitus too. Updated tour schedule below.

Makthaverskan have a new single on Run for Cover that will be available on the tour, and just yesterday their sister band Westkust released the single from their upcoming debut LP on RFC.
