Sunday, August 2, 2015 8:16 AM PT

The fallout from the beating and hospitalization of Crosscheck drummer Tom Alderson continues as New Jersey hardcore band Heavy Chains has been removed from the lineup of upcoming "The Life & Death Tour," featuring Bane, Turnstile, and Forced Order, among others. Backtrack, a member of whom booked the tour, has issued the following statement:

"After careful consideration, Heavy Chains will no longer be on the Life & Death Tour 2015. The number one priority for this tour is to provide a fun and safe environment for everyone at our shows, we have no further comment regarding the situation. Replacements will be announced soon."

In what may or may not be a coincidence, Heavy Chains' official Facebook page is currently unavailable.
