Nachdem Howard Jone letzte Woche überraschend die laufende Tour verließ, wurde nun ein Statement hierzu von der Band veröffentlicht:
"It became overwhelmingly obvious to all of us around Howard that he is in no condition to be on tour right now and that he needed to get off the road and get himself better. It's a personal matter and while we understand everyone's curiosity and concern for Howard and the band, we appreciate everyone respecting Howard's privacy at this time."
Phil Labonte von ALL THAT REMAINS sprang zunächst ein und wird wohl auch bei den weiteren Dates am Mic zu erleben sein.
"We seriously considered cancelling the tour since we don't want to give fans that paid good money anything less than KsE at full-strength. But after trying a few shows with Phil, and after feeling the love and support that we were getting from the crowd, it became increasingly apparent to us that the shows came across as fun and unique, and the fans seemed to be enjoying it. We quickly realized that we had to keep going and that we couldn't possibly stop."
