M:PIRE OF EVIL, featuring ex-VENOM members Tony Dolan (DEMOLITION MAN) and Jeff Dunn (MANTAS) together with drummer JXN Jackson, were to launch a North American tour with NWOBHM legends RAVEN on September 11th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

An update from the M:PIRE OF EVIL camp states: “Due to a US immigration administrative delay M:PIRE OF EVIL have been forced to cancel their appearance on the proposed Raven/M:PIRE OF EVIL North American tour in September 2013. Applications were made in time for visas however a clerical error that came to light too late meant re-application and this would have meant missing the whole of the dates planned. Raven will still be appearing on the tour but M:PIRE OF EVIL apologize and have no control in this case but have rescheduled and will be there in March/April 2014.”
