We are sorry to announce that we must cancel the upcoming Perdida acoustic tour. Our brother Jeff has a severely herniated disc and doctors have advised immediate surgery which will require weeks of recovery time and physical therapy. Thankfully Jeff is expected to make a full recovery and we will continue with our Australian tour with Live and Bush in April, the summer tour with Nickelback, and we hope to reschedule the Perdida tour later this year. Everyone who purchased tickets for the Perdida tour will get full refunds for their tickets at point of purchase. Thank you all for your understanding.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve always said that one’s health is more important than any of this other stuff and as I realize on an almost daily basis that the indestructability of my youth has faded for aches and pains, wish Jeff the swiftest of recovery and rest so he can get back into performance shape. Get well soon Jeff.
