Unfortunately Against Me! was forced to cancel their upcoming U.S. tour. Read More for a statement from the band.
Recently we reported Against Me! parted ways with drummer Jay Weinberg. Atom Willard filled in for him for Against Me’s Australian tour but apparently he isn’t available for their spring tour because the band was forced to cancel it due to uncertainty of the drummer and their desire to play the best possible show for the fans. They issued a sincere apology on their website:
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.
Hopefully this means Against Me will reschedule the same tour dates when they have their drumming situation worked out.
