Enter Shikari Drummer Finally Gets Visa; Will Join...

Posted by: Drew Beringer (02/27/13)
Enter Shikari have announced that, following a couple of years of frustration, drummer Rob Rolfe has finally acquired his US work visa and will be joining the band for their North American headline tour next month. In other news, the band have recently spent time at a studio in the north of England putting down three new tracks. The first of these tracks should see the light of day sometime very soon.

Enter Shikari Drummer Acquires VisaWhile Rolfe was previously excluded from joining the band in the US for two years due to a minor juvenile misdemeanour on his record, he had rejoined the band in North America for Warped Tour 2011 before confusion at the US Embassy saw his passport lost in the system for more than 12 months, effectively leaving him stranded at home for two tours, including their slot as main support on Falling In Reverse's November 2012 tour.

I met the guys after opening the ADTR tour. They had some questionablely aged girls in the van. Great guys though! Lol

Funny how we won't allow him into the country but have no problem letting millions of illegals sneak into the country.

Was lucky enough to catch Rob drumming during the 2011 Warped Tour, but I'm still very bummed this tour is coming nowhere near me.

Am I the only person who thinks a misdemeanour is a decent reason to keep someone from getting a work visa?
