||US metalcore band Bleeding Through had to cancel their participation on the remaining dates of the Demon Hunter: True Defiance Tour. The band's singer and guitarist Brandan Schieppati underwent surgery a couple of days ago and needs to stay put.
The band posted the following statement: "It is with deep regret that I am here to report that we have to drop off the current Demon Hunter tour. As you all know, Brandan had to undergo and emergency orthodontic surgery day before yesterday. Due to the severity of his procedure and upon Dr.'s orders. He has been advised not to perform as too not further increase the painful situation he has found himself in. To anyone who has had this done, then you know if it is complicated how painful it can be. He is recovering well and we will do make-up dates for the shows we are missing. We all express our most heartfelt apology to Demon Hunter, Cancer Bats, Willows, and The Plot In You. To anyone who bought tickets, to those who will miss this and still go, and to the ones that will be pissed. Trust me, we are sorry and appreciate your understanding. See you all soon!"
