With an already shaky past couple of shows, post-hardcore group At The Drive in have cancelled their five remaining North American tour dates due to a problem with singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala’s vocal chords.
The cancellation extends to the band’s two Toronto dates, scheduled for later on this week.
Last week, the band cancelled a show at Washington DC’s 9:30 Club, stating to Facebook “Cedric has been fighting off a cold and has now lost his voice making it impossible for us to play for you tonight.”
On Friday (June 17th), the band attempted to perform in Brooklyn, even setting up their gear and sound checking, but could not perform. Drummer Tony Hajjar and Guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López came out to an already full house at the Terminal 5 venue to deliver the news, which was met with mixed emotions.
The band shared this message later on to their fans announcing the cancellation, apologizing for their troubles and thanking fans for their support.
As the recovery time of Bixler-Zavala’s vocal chords is unclear, no dates have been yet been rescheduled.
