Well this is a serious bummer. Against Me! has just posted an announcement that they are dropping off the highly anticipated tour with Bad Religion and Polar Bear Club that’s supposed to kick off next week. Here’s what the band had to say:
Unfortunately we have to cancel all of our appearances scheduled for the upcoming tour with Bad Religion and Polar Bear Club.
Canceling a tour is definitely not a decision we would make lightly. At this moment, due to our current uncertainty over who is going to be playing drums with us, we feel like we are lacking the ability to put on the show our fans deserve and we think that the best thing for us to do right now is take some time to regroup and finish a record.
Our most sincere apologies to Bad Religion, Polar Club and all of the agents and promoters involved with the tour but most importantly to the fans who were coming out to see us.
If anyone who bought tickets doesn’t want to go to the show now or walks away from the show feeling disappointed we’ll definitely do our best to accommodate some spots on our guest list next time we pass through your town, which hopefully won’t be too long from now.
Sincere apologies. – Against Me!
I suppose the silver lining is that they’ll probably get their new album out sooner.
