Chiodos have dropped off the Crowd Surf America tour with a week remaining on the tour. While they didn’t go too into details, guitarist Thomas Erak has a medical condition that needed to be dealt with. Here’s what the band said in a statement:
“We are sorry to our fans as well as the bands on the tour Bless the Fall, I Killed the Prom Queen and Capture the Crown. Our guitarist Thomas Erak has had a reoccurring medical emergency that needs immediate attention and we want to support him in his recovery. We plan to make up these dates this year. We appreciate our fans continued support and look forward to seeing everyone on the upcoming Parks and Devastation tour with A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, and Motionless in White.”
Nice to see the band support their guitarist, but they probably could have gotten someone to fill in. Guess that last week wasn’t super important to them. Regardless, the Parks and Devastation tour will kick off on September 4th, and hopefully Erak will be recovered by then.
