American rockers Escape The Fate have had to cancel their London dates next month. An official statement from the band’s vocalist Craig Mabbitt can be read below, which explains their reasonings are for bassist Max Green to enter rehab:
“Max needs his friends and family by his side, so weâ€™re not gonna leave him,” says lead singer Craig Mabbitt. “Max is one of my best friends and has never done this band wrong in any way shape or form. It’s very honorable of him to admit he has a problem and wants to seek help for the longevity of his life and this band. I’m so sorry to the fans, but so proud of Max. He needs our love and support through this rough time in his life, so let’s give it to him. Our soldiers never let us down and we will be back to play Europe and the two London dates very soon. We love you guys.”
Escape The Fate will headline a string of European dates in early 2011. Tickets for the two London headline shows that were scheduled for December 6th and 7th at the Islington Academy will be honoured when these shows are rescheduled early next year.
