Pentagram has issued a statement about heading out on tour without Bobby Liebling, which can be read below.

Although it wasn't mentioned in the statement, it appears Liebling was arrested last month for assault and "physical abuse of a vulnerable adult" according to court records.

The records site is currently crashing due to high traffic, but a screenshot can be seen below. Pentagram posted this message online about the situation:

"As was the case for the recently completed US shows, vocalist Bobby Liebling will not appear with Pentagram for previously booked European dates this summer.

"To elaborate, Bobby called on April 17 saying he had been admitted to the hospital. He called again on April 19, this time after being transferred to a Maryland detention facility. He's now awaiting a preliminary hearing at which time it will be determined if a follow-up on any alleged charges are necessary. An update will be published when information is available. The band will be fulfilling all currently booked appearances with 36-year mainstay guitarist Victor Griffin performing all vocals.

"A personal note from the band: the outpouring of support on our recent US dates was outstanding! Your energy was matched ten-fold and encouraged us to carry on and deliver what many have called, even by skeptics, some of the best Pentagram performances they've seen. Thank you!

"We have the best fans in the world and if not for you, the legacy of this band would have died long ago. We won't let you down now. The music lives on and as we move forward, we reiterate the lyrics of Curious Volume: 'In this venture death waits in the shadows, but in survival the volume won't die!'

"Sincerely, Victor, Greg, & Pete."

This article is wanting in information.
Supposedly he attacked his myom, but was it while he was under the influence of some drug, or did she hide his fig newtons causing him to blow into an unstoppable rage of stuffing her into the dishwasher?
