In a statement the band said, “Hey everyone, We really wish we didn’t have to be writing this right now, but after taking Dave to the doctor this morning it turns out that he has laryngitis and unfortunately we are unable to play the show tonight. We are already in the middle of trying to reschedule NY dates in the next couple of months to make up for this cancellation.” Ticketholders will be entitled to full refunds at the place of purchase though a rescheduled date should be announced in the near future. The statement continued, “Again, our sincere apologies to fans anticipating this show. We are always psyched to play NYC and will make it up to you.”
