Right before the Holidays, Lorna Shore announced CJ McCreery is no longer their vocalist. The group hasn’t officially addressed the reason behind his firing. However, there have been abuse allegations against McCreery that have recently surfaced via social media, which is what led to his sudden dismissal. The band had just started the promotional stage for their new album, Immortal, which was initially scheduled to be released on January 31st via Century Media. The group has made their first statement since McCreery’s firing, which they revealed they’d been forced to cancel their scheduled shows in Asia. While many have questions concerning the band’s future, the group admitted they are still figuring this out and ask for patience.
Read the full statement below:
We are deeply saddened to announce that we will NOT be playing the shows we had scheduled there this month. Ourselves, and the booking agent tried everything we could to make this happen, but unfortunately it just couldn’t work. We promise to be back soon. We love you all and are very sorry we couldn’t make this happen.
Edit: everyone asking about the album/future. you will know when we know. at this moment, there are discussions but nothing we can comment on.
all we ask is please be patient.
this will all be addressed soon.”
