Posted by on March 21, 2020

Read statements below:


“Unsurprisingly, we’ve been forced to call these March and April dates off. We’ll do our best to reschedule for later in the summer. We’re bummed but hope to see you sometime soon on the road once things clear up.”



“We are forced to cancel our tour with Horrendous. The earth will always find a way to slowly cleanse itself, this time it happens to be in the form of a virus. Watching this all unfold, and noticing how a moderate emergency (in comparison) can change people, has been very interesting to say the least. To support the band in any way you can visit our Bandcamp merch shop in the link below. We’ll be back on the road as soon as we can.
