Car Seat Headrest has pulled out of When We Were Young Festival and dropped several dates from their upcoming California tour due to health issues affecting frontman Will Toledo.

“After months of struggling to regain my health, I am currently forced to face the fact that my body lacks the basic levels of functionality necessary to leave the house most days, let alone embark on a tour,” Toledo said in a statement via social media. “As a result, we are unfortunately forced to pull out of the When We Were Young Festival dates, and cancel our upcoming California tour. Refunds for our headlining dates will be available at your point of purchase. Stay safe, everyone.”

The newly pulled tour dates follow two other shows dropped last month, with Toledo citing “continued health issues” following an infection of COVID-19.

Car Seat Headrest’s last reported dates to Pollstar‘s Boxoffice include shows in Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom over the course of two nights on May 20 and 21, grossing a total of $446,745. The band also performed one night in Denver’s Ogden Theatre on May 10, grossing $48,805.
