In an earlier press release, we had stated that nothing said "welcome to
America" like getting tased. Apparently we were wrong. YOUR DEMISE
guitarist, Stu Paice just posted a rather alarming story on the band's
official Tumblr page about how the band was stopped at the Canadian border,
searched and held at gunpoint by the police:
"As we headed our back into America from Canada, we decided to head to to
Tim Hortons for the Last time before we entered the states.
Shortly after leaving, everyone was full of bagels and coffee, Drifting of
to sleep, our rest was interrupted by the sound of 3 Canadian Police Cars.
Sirens blasting, we pulled over completely baffled as to why we where being
stopped as we had done nothing wrong.
So we stopped at the side of the free-way to the sound of, ŒDriver, get out
of the car now¹, at this point we had no clue what was going on. So danny
gets out and they tell him to stick his hands up and turn around, walk
toward the car, we then saw a Police man stick a Gun in Danny back and drag
him to the car, Handcuff him and put him the back of the Police car. so we
now mental stuff was going through our heads. Next they shouted for the
passenger (Pumpjack) to get out, Same thing, GUN, HANDCUFFS, CAR BONNET!.
We started to giggle nervously and heard, ŒAll of you , Get out¹, so we got
out and we were told to put our hands in the air and get down on our knees,
the whole time, we where held a Gunpoint by 2 Scumbags.
So we get out in the freezing snow, on the ground and the cop starts to
search the van, i mean it was like 24 Jack Bauer shit.
They soon began clear, that they had the wrong people and found it to be a
bit of a misunderstanding. So it turns out the car infront of us, well the
driver had just shot someone, and we had basically just missed it happen.
The Police where responding to it and thought it was us, when in theory they
got the wrong car/van.
So an eventful last night in Canada
