Killwitch Engage have been forced to cancel their upcoming tour run from today through May 5 for Jesse to undergo vocal surgery. In a statement posted by the band to facebook, they state that Jesse is expected to make a full recovery and will be fine for future touring.
The statement also directs fans that full refunds are available from the point of purchase for their headline dates, but with rescheduled dates being announced soon it's probably better to just hold on to your tickets for now.
"Earlier today we found out Jesse needs to have surgery to repair an issue with his vocal chords. He is expected to make a full recovery and be fine for any future touring, but to avoid any future risk we unfortunately have to pull off these dates now. Our intention is to postpone the headline shows in Sayreville, Louisville, Cleveland & Poughkeepsie and get back to our fans as soon as possible. New dates for those cities will be announced soon, so please hold onto your tickets.
In the meantime our friends in Hatebreed, Candiria and The Word Alive still plan on continuing forward with these shows. Show them your support."
