    The 'Distinguished Talent' visa (which is for 4 years) wasn't going to be approved for a few more months and so we were totally screwed seeing we start recording this Thursday (!!!), but we've managed to get him back on a short business term visa for 3 months to record the album (guitar recording starts on Dec 1), and then hopefully the distinguished talent visa will be approved not too long after this visa runs out (or even before).

    So still waiting on that big one to get the long term confirmation, but getting him back for the album is a massively, hugely and relieving big step in the process.

    Man dealing with immigration is a pain in the arse....

    Thanks for your support peoples!! :)

    Shame, restrictive immigration policies, free movement ftw!
    But yes, good to hear you're back at least for a bit!

    Ah bugger, I headbanged and glassraised prematurely. Still, great news that he's been allowed back in time for the recording. Fingers crossed that the distinguished talent visa is approved before the business visa expires.

    WTF, are you guys recording? This is good news. Can you tell anything about the release date yet?

    Anyway, I'll celebrate this with a couple of beers and a portion of Swedish dynamite.

    Yes, I will be having a private launch show in my flat here in Finland. :(

    @ Dan: Swedish dynamite is not pot (unfortunately). It's a bit like the American snuff (I'm talking about tobacco, not about porn). Anyway, it's good stuff.
