Planes Mistaken For Stars Cancels Tours

Planes Mistaken For Stars has scrapped their final touring plans due to a "family emergency." Here's a statement from the band:

"We are sorry to say but we have some bad news. Due to a family emergency within the PMFS family, we have to cancel the whole January tour and Europe. We tried to figure out a way around this but it has become more serious than expected and as we all know family comes first. Everything will be ok but now this is the time we are there for the person(s) in need. With this said, we will be playing only ONE more show (our final show) in February. This will be in Denver and we will keep you updated on the venue and date. You did read this correctly, there will be only ONE more Planes show. Hopefully you all can come and see us one last time in a couple of months.

"This last show will be the celebration you don't want to miss! And hey, there's no better way to celebrate the life of planes than with friends! Thank you for all of your love and support over the years! It has really meant the world to each one of us. With that said, we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you all again."

Planes Mistaken For Stars Plans To Disband

Planes Mistaken For Stars has released additional details regarding their break-up and final plans. Here's a statement from drummer Mike Ricketts:

"It's true; Planes Mistaken for Stars will be doing their last tours and shows in the next 9 months. We will be doing Gainesville Fest, an East Coast tour in November, a smaller Texas tour in January, a European tour in the early spring, and hopefully a few Colorado shows between. To sum it all up, by this time next year Planes Mistaken For Stars will be no more.

There are many reasons why we've decided to move on: Financial strain, family obligations, etc. but we really just felt it was time. Our love for each other and our music has not diminished. It will always be there and I have no doubt that we could continue to write balls to the wall music. Now it's just time for change.

Chuck and Neil will continue to blow minds with their band, Git Some. Gared will be writing/performing in Hawks and Doves (a collaboration with Matt Bellinger, Planes's old guitar player). Then I will be moving to Chicago to be closer to family, hopefully starting a band there with some old friends and probably going back to school to pursue my science career.

We'd like to thank everyone who has supported us through the years. To the bands that we've toured with: you will always hold a special place in our hearts. To our committed friends and family who've helped establish us: words cannot express our appreciation. Then to the many steadfast fans and friends whom we've met on the road: thank you for your love and devotion. One of the hardest things is realizing that we may not get to see you as often as in the past. So please make sure you come to see us in these final months!

It's been one hell of a ride! The past 10 years have flown by and we've had experiences we could never have dreamed of. Thank you all for being a part of it. On that note, Farewell!! We'll see you all soon in a city near you!"

Planes Mistaken For Stars Drop Off Euro Tour

Planes Mistaken For Stars have dropped of their upcoming European tour with Converge as the result of a family emergency. Modern Life Is War will be taking their place on the March/April tour. PMFS have released the following statement:

"We have to pull out of our March/April Euro tour with Converge. We thought long and hard about the easiest way to break it to everyone without being cryptic or melodramatic. So here goes. We originally were going to pass on this tour because Chuck is expecting the birth of his baby girl in early April. Then, after little discussion and even less fanfare, Jamie decided to once again pick up the bass and fight the good fight with us for four whole weeks across the pond. We picked Jamie up in the midst of our recent tour with High On Fire to start practicing for the Converge tour. On our way back from Chicago we received a distressing phone call. Jamie's father, {and surrogate father to the rest of us}, was back in the hospital and in dire condition. Needless to say neither Jamie nor Chuck are in a position to leave their families at a time like this. And to be quite frank, neither are Matt, Mikey, or I. We are first and foremost a family, so leaving Chuck and Jamie here without us is out of the question. We promise we will be back, guns a blazing, in a couple of months with a whole slew of cool news for all of you. In the meantime please keep Jamie and Chuck in your thoughts and wishes. And thanx to everyone who have supported us as a band, and more importantly as people, for the last six or so years."
