This is sad. 

Simple Plan have cancelled their Canadian tour with All Time Low.

The shows were planned to take place this month, but frontman Pierre Bouvier has been "advised to go on immediate vocal rest."

"While singing in the studio this week, Pierre started feeling pain in his vocal cords and consulted his voice doctor." explain the band in a statement. "After examination, Pierre was instructed to go on immediate vocal rest. He was also advised to refrain from singing for the next 4 weeks to avoid any permanent vocal cord damage."

"After a gruelling touring and traveling schedule and playing over 100 headlining shows all over the world since "Taking One For The Team" came out last February, we all decided together as a band that taking this precautionary measure was the best course of action for the long-term health of Pierre and for our career."

"We absolutely hate to not be able to play these shows and have to reschedule. Our Canadian shows are always extremely special to us and it really breaks our hearts to have to make this announcement. We hope you will understand the situation and the fact that we didn't come to this conclusion lightly or easily. We also want to reassure you that with the proper rest, Pierre's voice will be back to 100% and healthy again."

They've announced a new tour for March 2017, but won't be joined by All Time Low at those shows.

You can see the band's full statement below.

Here's hoping that Pierre feels better soon.
