Slowmotion Apocalypse Cancels All Upcoming Shows

Slowmotion Apocalypse has issued the following statement about canceling their upcoming activity due to their guitarist Nicolas Milanese being diagnosed with leukemia:

"Unfortunately, this time we're writing for giving you bad news. Only few days ago we discovered Nicolas suffers from leukemia. He will have to go through a rather long period of therapy and this won't allow him to give his contribution to the life of Slowmotion Apocalypse. We're all shocked and as a band we decided to wait for him to be able to have a normal life and to be able to play with us again. We are therefore taking a pause for an indeterminate period of time. All our shows are canceled. We're sure you'll understand the reasons of our choice. A special message to all our friends: Nicolas needs first of all to have a rest. We ask you not to call him but rather send him text messages. Thank you all."
