“To all my friends and to all the people that are trying to go to the Refused shows in San Francisco and New York: It is a complete bummer that there has been some problems with scaplers buying up tickets and selling them back at double the price. That is indeed capitalism in it’s prime.

As a band there is very little that we can do about it. I know that there is a limit to 4 tickets per person but that doesn’t seem to help as much as we want.
Also, it is frustrating that we are not going to have the time to play and hang out with everyone that wants to see us. The demand has been way crazier that we ever expected.
On the other hand it is pretty amazing that so many people are working hard to get tickets and that there are so many people that have been giving us alot of love these last weeks. It means alot to me.

Hopefully we will be able to play more show so that more people will be able to see us.
I will keep you posted on everything.

Tomorrow it is however time to go out and play with Invasionen a couple of shows.
Please check out our music as well would make me very happy.
See you soon my friends.

Ps. Yesterday we practiced the song The Slayer, it sounded pretty great!!

Love
D.”
