Earlier this week Escape The Fate pulled out of their UK tour with Chiodos.
Vocalist Craig Mabbitt has posted another statement regarding the bands decision.
“Dear fans of Escape The Fate:
As many of you know, we had to cancel our upcoming European Warped tour
And European headlining dates with Chiodos. This was not a decision we took
lightly nor wished to make. The fact is that Escape The Fate has had a number
of challenges recently – with Monte and Michael, with those in whose trust we
previously placed our business and with our families. But all of these
challenges are currently being overcome so Escape The Fate can continue to
be a band for many years to come – and to be the best band we can be so
this never happens again.
It is true that there were many factors that contributed to our inability to do
the tour but after it became clear that my girlfriend was facing continued
complications with the birth of our son, I had to make the decision to be with
her. I’m still at the hospital as I write this, and am happy to report we now have
a healthy baby boy!
Nothing is more important to us than our fans and we intend to make it up to
all of you. 2013 has been a difficult year for us, but we are confident that we
are now poised to make 2014 the best year we’ve ever had. Your support is so
appreciated and means more than you can ever know.
