The Amity Affliction bassist/co-vocalist Ahren Stringer will miss the remaining dates of the North American 10 anniversary of Let The Ocean Take Me tour with Currents, Dying Wish, and Mugshot. Stringer will be absent to dealing with addiction and mental health issues. Tim Beken of True North will take over his role for the rest of the tour. 

The band released a message today, May 24th, that reads the following:

North America Tour Update

In what is the most heartbreaking news, we have to tell you that Ahren won't be joining us on the remainder of our North American tour dates. Tim Beken, who many of you will know from True North, will join us for all upcoming shows until Ahren returns.

This decision is in the best interest of Ahren's mental health and well-being. He is returning to Australia to address his struggle with addiction and get the support he needs.

This tour has been our best US tour ever, and we look forward to seeing you on the road. Please feel free to bring signs of support for Ahren that we can send to him at home, now more than ever he needs as much support as we can possibly give him.

Thank you for understanding and please respect Ahren's privacy as well as ours, this is a heartbreaking matter that we will be working through internally as we look forward to his recovery and return.
