The Convalescence broke down on the road yesterday and is now seeking fan support to raise funds for repairing the van and getting back on with the new tour date. If you'd like to contribute, you can do so at GoFundMe.com here. The band comments:
"The Convalescence has been on tour for 101 days straight as of now touring non stop all over the country. We have no financial backing or support of any kind from sponsors or labels. On July 26th making the drive from San Bernardino, CA to Reno, NV our tour bus started acting up. After pulling over to the side of the road, we found out that the plug for our oil pan was missing and there was no oil in the bus.
"We called road side assistance for help, they brought us some oil and a new plug to get us back on the road. 45 minutes and $200.00 later, we heard some strange sounds and the entire bus filled with exhaust smoke. We pulled over thinking the bus was on fire, the Stockon, CA fire department and California state highway patrol arrived on the scene and tried to help as much as they could. While stopped we also noticed about a 6 foot piece of our exhaust that had fallen off of the bus.
"We were able to get the bus to a nearby truck stop to be repaired tomorrow morning, but we will be missing our show in Reno, NV. We are pretty close to flat broke, and had enough to get a hotel room near the truck stop. We are having issues funding the repairs on the bus, affording hotel stay, food for the band and crew, as gas to get to our next show in Seattle, WA. We are asking for your help with this situation. Any donation to help get our band back on the road would be appreciated more than you know!" More...

"The Convalescence cancelled the North East leg of the current tour due to Hurricane Sandy; we are working diligently on re-booking the affected show cancellations for February/March 2013. In addition, prior to the affected dates, a band member misappropriated the use of funds to purchase a tour vehicle that could not be utilized for tour and as a result, resigned from the band without notice.
"The first show of the remaining tour dates was to be at The Limits in Nashville, TN, November 8th; however, the venue closed its doors last week. With the current tour dates approaching this week and five ‘off’ dates; the cost effectiveness directly related to travel expenditures regarding the remaining shows this weekend; we have cancelled the following dates to be rescheduled at a future date and time:
09 NOV 12 – The Soundstage – Conway, AR
10 NOV 12 – Hippy’s Nightlife – Texarkana, AR
11 NOV 12 – O’Reilly’s Pub – Dallas, TX

"Britton is still our brother and plans to return to the band as soon as he can. While at home he will begin writing for a new album and doing a lot of work with us behind the scenes. \m/ Dana, Erik, Chris, Cody, and I will be looking forward to seeing you all on the road."
