Eyehategod, NOLA progenitors, recently canceled their Australian tour, and have just announced the cancellation of their three-day jaunt in Mexico too. As a result, the band has issued the following statement:
We regret to have to cancel both our Australian and Mexican dates until further notice. Vocalist Mike IX Williams’ mental stability and health are major serious issues at this point, and we are very, very sorry for putting our fans and business partners in this miserable position. We feel horrible about these empty spaces in our schedule and will make up these tours as soon as possible. The cancellation of these tours is in no way any fault of the promoters or foreign booking agents. We hope our fans understand.
We think fans will understand andwishes Williams a speedy road to wellness.
Since part of the problem included long flights, Eyehategod recently embarked upon two separate short runs of shows on the West and East Coasts, fully against doctor’s orders. These shows were found to be physically draining and a detriment, performance-wise, to Williams. Williams – who is currently dealing with exhaustion and chronic fatigue from a near nonstop tour schedule over the last five years — is resting, healing, and catering to his health and will be ready to conquer Europe and the UK on tour this April.
