The Amity Affliction vocalist Joel Birch was reportedly hospitalized earlier this week with an undisclosed illness, forcing the band to cancel one Warped Tour appearance and recruit fill-ins for a second. The band had the following to say:
"Apologies for having to pull out of our show in Pittsburgh, Joel was pretty unwell! He still won't be right to go by tomorrow but thanks to our bros, Sam from Architects and Chris from Like Moths to Flames, we will be good to go for Cleveland. It will be a bit like Amity Karaoke so you'll have to scream along with them! We hope to have Joel back for Detroit! Once again sorry to everyone who missed seeing us today. Promise we will come back to Pittsburgh soon!"
