Jason is leaving the band and will not complete the tour for personal reasons. Slaves are currently on tour with Hands Like Houses, Alive Like Me, and Miss Fortune.
Jason released this comment via Facebook:
“My father has battled cancer for the latter of his senior adult life. He had been living in remission in Florida when I moved to California, but as of recent news the cancer is back in full force, and it’s not looking very good. My heart has been very heavy since receiving this news, thus making it very difficult to justify my living on the west coast indefinitely. This has been a huge strain on my family, and I, personally, feel like it’s my responsibility to contribute.”
Jason went on to say that he is not done with his musical career and that we will see him again, maybe even on stage with Slaves from time to time.

From all of us at TheNewFury, we would like to wish Jason the best of luck. I’m sure he knows he has the complete respect and support of all his friends, family, and fans.
