Guitarist John Connolly recently broke a bone in his left hand, leaving the band unable to launch its spring outing May 4 as planned.

The tour will instead begin May 13 in Corpus Christi, Texas, with the canceled gigs to be rescheduled for the future.

The affected shows include dates in Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Texas.

Sevendust will wrap the trek in Charlotte, N.C., May 25, then head to Europe for a round of June performances.
