New Orleans' Eyehategod has issued an explanation for the recent cancellations of the band's tour dates in both Australia and Mexico. Notably, the group says that the "mental stability and health" of frontman Mike Williams are "serious issues at this point." Here's their full statement:
"1000% regrettably on the heels of the recent Australian tour cancellation, Eyehategod have cancelled their upcoming Mexico three day tour as well... "Vocalist Mike IX William's 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 ASAP. "Since part of the problem were the long flights for the ailing singer, EHG tried completing pre-booked short run West and East Coast gigs in the USA only, going full on against doctor's orders. These were found to be physically draining and a detriment performance wise for Williams. "An urgent cure to exhaustion and fatigue is needed and Williams is resting and healing up to get healthy by April to tour Europe and the UK. "The cancellation of these tours is NOT ANY FAULT of the promoters or foreign booking agents and Eyehategod promise we will make these shows up as soon as we can."
