Set it Off singer Cody Carson was recently denied permission to cross the Canadian border, as the band traveled to the country for dates with For All I Am and I the Mighty. The band has decided to go on without him, and will play the eight Canadian shows without their singer.
Carson is bowing out of all dates during the tour, including three taking place stateside in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin in the middle of the itinerary, according to a statement he made which you can read here.
The band will continue the tour to support their debut album, Cinematics, which was released last September via Equal Vision Records.
Carson had this to say:
As some of you may have heard, I was unable to play the show Wednesday night after being held up at the Canadian border. It was an unfortunate situation but I’m completely fine, and we are working to clear up the issue as soon as possible. But it also means that I unfortunately will not be able to join SIO on the remaining dates of this tour. Everything will be taken care of but until then I hope you’ll still go hang out with the rest of SIO and the other amazing bands on this tour. I’m so sorry to our fans and the band for not being there, it truly breaks my heart to be missing these shows. As soon as I can, I will come back and make it up to you, Canada. Please sing your hearts out in my absence this week.
With Much Love,
