Canadian band, The Contact, refused entrance into the USA on verge of CD release despite proper paperwork.

    HALIFAX, June 26 /CNW/ - Eirinn Fraser Enterprise - Nova Scotia band, The
Contact, was set for an International tour on the verge of their National CD
release, The Canvas Tears, on June 26th. Unfortunately, despite paperwork from
the AFofM, they were denied entrance into the USA. Treated like common
criminals, the four band members were photographed, fingerprinted, questioned,
and sent back home. Festivals and bars were left scurrying for new performers
at such a pinnacle time. The Contact, although weary that such a circumstance
may reoccur again, are still making plans for the "attempt" of an
International tour in August.
    Earlier this month they released their first single, Black Sea, to
Maritime radio. It has been receiving a great response from media, industry,
and the fans. This work demonstrates the bands unique sound (rock/pop) and is
a great example of the journey you will experience from this compilation.
Nothing was compromised in making The Canvas Tears. The crew, Grammy award
winning producer, Quinlan, mixing by Chuck Zwicky (Prince, Chantel Kreviazuk,
Soul Asylum), graphics by Invisible Creature (Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers,
Good Charlotte), mastered by Dave Collins (The Police, Bruce Springsteen,
Soundgarden), engineering by Lil Thomas, and recording at The Sonic Temple
(Halifax, Nova Scotia) and The Fiction Room (Columbus, Ohio), has transcended
their expertise.
    The Canvas Tears is a remarkable epic journey that will leave you
speechless. You can feel the intensity and deliverance of labor executed in
the lyrics, music, and performance of each and every song by the band;
Geoffrey Fifield, Tim Fifield, Nathan Elliot-Doucet, and Jordon Allen. Their
ability to share their interpretation of the nature of life draws listeners to
stop, take notice, and yearn for more. They have created an independent
masterpiece with unadulterated pleasure from start to finish. Despite the
circumstance, The Contact will continue to break barriers and arduously
promote and hone their crafts with their vigorous, concise, melodic, and
refreshing new sound!
