From Hospital Bed to The Stage: Jonny Craig Announces New Texas Dates

After recent surgery on his back and a cancelation of a bunch of dates with Slaves, Jonny Craig is making his return to the touring circuit. However, it’s only for a few days in Texas. Joining him on the tour are Long Beach alternative rock band Hearts Like Lions (FFO: As Cities Burn, Mutemath) and Milwaukee alternative/indie band Dreamhouse (FFO: Circa Survive, Saosin).

In case you missed it, back in February Jonny released this statement about his health and having to postpone shows:

“Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I have been forced to postpone the upcoming shows in Texas and New York City.

Over the past few weeks I had been experiencing severe back pain. After consulting with the doctor it was clear that surgery was necessary. In this time, I have undergone three back surgeries. I’m beginning post surgery recovery and will have to remain hospitalized for the present time to properly heal from these surgeries and get back to full health before I can perform.

It hurts me so much to postpone these shows, but I hope you understand this is something I need to do for my health. I am going to work to ensure that these rescheduled shows are extra special. Once I know my recovery timeline, I will get these shows rescheduled and announced as soon as possible. All tickets will remain valid and will be honored at the rescheduled shows. A special thank you to Third String Productions, Twin Productions, and New Island for their understanding and help with rescheduling these shows.

Thank you for your continuous support.

Love, 
Jonny”

[RUMOR MILL]: Letlive to go on hiatus?

The music scene is currently buzzing with rumors that Epitaph Records post-hardcore band letlive. will be going on some sort of hiatus or even a farewell tour in the near future. The last 12-24 hours alone have seen rumblings from multiple sources that seem to indicate a farewell tour that could take place as soon as this fall. We do not have further details at this time, but we will continue to keep you updated with further information. It should be known that this rumor does have plenty of buzz online, but not enough to say it’s anything outside of a rumor. That being said, the evidence we do have can be found below – sources are all over Twitter and Reddit at the moment, as well as chorus.fm. It’s also known that Music Mayhem Magazine have picked up the story, so clearly it’s gaining traction.

letlive. exploded onto the post-hardcore scene’s front lines in a huge way with the critically acclaimed Fake History in 2010. Since then they have only continued to gain a loyal and passionate following, following up that album with The Blackest Beautiful in 2013, and If I’m the Devil… last year. The latter album was criticized by fans for not having a lot of energy, but they still managed to support the album via a summer headlining tour last year that also featured Seahaven, Night Verses, and Silver Snakes. Regardless of the rumors circling around right now, Letlive is one of experimental post-hardcore’s leading lights, and it would be sad to see them go away in any capacity. Their fans are truly some of the most dedicated around.
