The band announced the news this morning:


We are deeply sorry to say that, due to a serious illness in Nick’s family, we must cancel this summer’s Work This Body Tour.  For many years now, Nick’s dad has been suffering from Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease.  Unfortunately, it’s reached a point where he needs to come home and focus on his family for awhile.  Out of respect for the immediate commitments we’ve made, we will play out the rest of our shows in May – after that, we will be taking a break from the road.  All tickets to our headline shows in July + August will be refunded.  With a heavy heart we send our gratitude out to our team, our industry friends, and most importantly our fans for their understanding and support.  Through this time, it continues to be our dream and our mission to take the darkness in our lives and mold it into light + color.  The only way out is through.  <+>
