Gaza Drops Off Tour
Gaza has cancelled their current tour. Here's a statement from the band:
"After a little over a week of cancelling shows day-to-day, we can now say we've cancelled our entire tour. We hadn't cancelled the whole tour preemptively because we had been trying to get on the road still. A couple of crucial things happened the day before we left:
1) Our transmission is out of commission. The transmission had been rapidly getting worse and worse the whole month of October (The overdrive starting kicking off about 15 miles on the freeway and shortly thereafter the transmission temperature light would come on) and our repairs (or attempt thereof) couldn't fix the sitch before we left. We're looking at rebuilding it at this stage and with hardly any money and not the time required to set up an appointment at a shop, we're trying to have Mike and his dad get it rebuilt.
2) One of Mike's best friends committed suicide.
We were planning on going without Mike except that the transmission is the insurmountable barrier. Even still, he's our mechanic and had anything gone wrong had we decided to go without him, we'd REALLY be in trouble. We really wanted to do this and we're really sorry. We didn't plan on it and intend for such things to happen. Honestly, before this whole clusterfuck, we can only think of 2 shows in 200+ that we had to cancel so I can give you fair assurance that it happening to any one of you personally is highly unlikely. We hope this all didn't rub too many of you too much the wrong way and hope to see you around and vice-versa.
The fall has not been kind to us with our touring plans, and during the winter we will be simultaneously dodging death on the roads while attempting to write the majority of our next record. Expect us to hit the road running in early-Spring."
