Unfortunately we are having to pull out of our US West Coast dates w/ The Used later this month due to illness. Sorry to everyone who had a ticket but we’ll be back fighting fit as soon as possible. Sam has a written a few words about the reasons we’re having to cancel and you can see them below.
Once again, big apologies USA and we’ll see you soon!
It is with deep regret, disappointment and frustration that we have been advised to pull out of the forthcoming West Coast tour with The Used due to an issue I am experiencing with the muscles in my throat. “Muscle Tension Dysphonia” is the technical term, but I’d like to put it a different way. Being in this band is our lifelong passion, so the idea of stopping to rest hasn’t really crossed our minds these past 5 years. If you want something badly enough you’ve got to go out there and earn it, but that also means pushing yourself to your limits and then past the line. The problem is we have not stopped pushing and it is my throat that has finally said “no more”. We’ve watched our fan base grow in the States this last year and have made great memories with you all so it is particularly bad timing, but this decision is to ensure that we can keep on rocking and therefore rolling through your towns and cities for the years to come with that Scottish whiny tone you’ve grown to accept. To our UK fans fear not as this decision has you all in mind. We owe a lot of thanks to you guys for everything we have achieved on this album so far and this being it’s final hurrah we naturally thought you wouldn’t want a squawking weasel in front of you all on stage. Our October & November tour will remain the same due to vocal therapy sessions that I’ll be partaking in over the next few weeks. Here’s to the community we are all becoming part of.
Hoping and trusting you will understand… Big love, Sam McTrusty. (ULTRA)
