Michigan metal band King 810 have been stopped from entering Canada to play a support set for Slipknot and Korn.

The band have said that their “criminal past” is to blame for them being allowed to “voluntarily withdraw” their request to enter the country.

King 810 posted a picture of the Canadian authorities’ official paperwork, signed by frontman David Gunn, on their Facebook page, along with the message: “Due to criminal past we’ve been denied access to your country. We apologise we cannot play for you tonight. We are working on clearing this up, and we’ll try to come back as soon as possible.”

The news comes after the arrest of Gunn and bassist Eugene Gill in June as they were about to fly out of the USA to play a set at this year’s Download festival in Donington.
