within the ruinsA few days ago, Within the Ruins were forced to pull out of a handful of dates on their tour with Whitechapel following their frontman Tim Goergen being hospitalized with heart and liver complications. At the time, they’d taken a “wait and see” stance about when they would be rejoining the tour. Yesterday, they opted to drop off of the remaining tour dates to wait for their frontman to recover, as they explained in a Facebook post:

Unfortunately, at this point we have no other option but to withdraw from the remaining dates of the Whitechapel tour. Tim will be released tomorrow, but due to the seriousness of his condition he has been advised not to engage in any strenuous activity while recovering over the next few weeks. We apologize to any fans that were looking forward to seeing us, but Tim’s health comes first. We WILL be back out this summer in support of our forthcoming album. The rest of the shows are still happening so be sure to make it out and support our friends in Whitechapel, Carnifex and Cruel Hand. See you all this summer!

So if you were planning on attending the tour to see Within the Ruins, that’s a bit of a bummer, but at least the rest of the tour is continuing on. Here are those dates:

04/23 West Columbia, SC @ New Brookland Tavern
04/24 Jacksonville, FL @ Roc Bar
04/25 Tampa, FL @ The Orpheum
04/27 Birmingham, AL @ Zydeco
