Escape The Fate have cancelled this months UK tour. The band have stated the reason is that vocalist Craig Mabbitt’s girlfriend is due to give birth soon.
The band posted the following message:
The members of ESCAPE THE FATE regret that they will be unable to carry out their touring plans for Europe, including the European run of The Vans Warped Tour and dates with Chiodos. Vocalist Craig Mabbitt’s longtime girlfriend was due to have their second child prior to the band’s European run. She is now overdue and Mabbitt can not travel, as he needs to be home, by her side for the birth. The band sends their sincerest apologies to The Warped Tour, Chiodos and especially their European fan contingent and hopes to get to Europe in 2014 to the cities they are missing.
However Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman has accused the band of lying. In a tweet, Lyman stated:
“@escapethefate pulling out of the Europe shows has nothing to do with having a baby, tell the truth it will set U free. Shame on u 4 lying.”
Chiodos and The Color Morale will still play the ‘Road to Warped UK’ tour next week.
