Back in late February, Unearth announced a short stint of dates with Winds of Plague and Texas In July as support. However, with the tour set to begin tomorrow, Winds of Plague have now pulled due to an unspecified illness with a band member. The following was posted to the band’s Facebook:
Due to unforeseen circumstances involving the health of one of our members we are unable to make this upcoming tour. We will make it up to you in the near future. We were really looking forward to coming and playing to old and new fans. Please go to the shows and support our friends in Unearth and Texas In July.
It would appear that the band member in question is keyboardist Alana Potocnik given the series of posts on her Twitter that started yesterday indicating she was falling ill:

We wish Potocnik a speedy recovery. No word yet on if the tour has nabbed another band to fill in for Winds of Plague.
