In light of recent events, Weekend Nachos has opted not to perform at Back To School Jam 2015 in September. The band has issued the following statement:

"Due to recent events, Weekend Nachos have decided to cancel our appearance at this years Back To School Jam in New Jersey. We understand that the show is now a benefit for Tom Alderson, who was recently very badly assaulted and is still recovering in the hospital. While we appreciate that there will be additional money going to Tom and his family, we are still not comfortable being on the lineup with everything that has happened recently, and will therefore not be playing the show.

"Our hearts go out to Tom and his family/friends. Please focus your energy on supporting them in every way you can. We also have utmost respect for anybody who has attempted to turn this situation into a positive one for Tom, and that includes anybody involved with the Back To School Jam who has done so."
