Finally, Deathbat News has received an OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE released by Warner Brothers Records:
“AVENGED SEVENFOLD CANCEL SEPTEMBER TOUR DATES, BAND’S FALL TOUR TO RESUME ON OCTOBER 15th
Avenged Sevenfold deeply regret that they must cancel their U.S. shows on the band’s current fall tour in order for frontman M. Shadows to rest his voice.
Shadows first began to experience problems singing during the band’s show on September 6th in Huntington, West Virginia. After being unable to perform the next night at a show in Baltimore, Shadows flew home to see his doctor, who diagnosed vocal fatigue. Fortunately there is nothing on Shadows’ vocal chords that requires surgery, but he has been prescribed vocal rest so that he will be able to resume touring without interruption.
Though Avenged Sevenfold feel terrible that they have to disappoint fans who bought tickets for the first leg of the tour, the band are happy to report they will be able to return to the road in October. The tour will resume on October 15th in Osaka, Japan, and the band will back touring the U.S. with Buckcherry, Shinedown and Saving Abel starting on November 4th in Casper, Wyoming.
M. Shadows adds “I feel as if I’m letting so many people down, especially the fans we were supposed to see this month, but after a little rest it’ll be back to the usual craziness everyone expects of A7X. All of us are so excited about going out with Buckcherry in November; our fans will love them as well as Shinedown and Saving Abel”.”
Thanks to all of the fans that have been nothing but understanding and supportive throughout this situation.
UPDATE: After an hour of this initial post, Avenged Sevenfold have finally released the statement as well.
