Thrice have decided to forge ahead with their summer touring plans, band drummer Riley Breckenridge issued the following statement on the matter:
“Since the situation with Dustin’s Dad arose and we had to cancel the remainder of our tour with Manchester Orchestra and O’Brother, there have been many questions regarding the status of our summer headline tour. Today we got word from Dustin that he’s good to go, and as a result, we will be continuing with our plans to do that tour in it’s entirety.
It has been an indescribably difficult seven months for all of us. In September, my and Ed’s Dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer in his throat and tongue and has since undergone seven weeks of chemo and radiation, and a major surgery three weeks ago to remove the remaining tumors. No more than two weeks after my Dad’s diagnosis in September, Teppei’s Mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, and passed away in January. And most recently, Dustin’s Dad’s diagnosis and surgery last week. It’s just been relentless.
We really appreciate the support, positive thoughts, and understanding you’ve shown us in person or via the comments on this blog as we’ve dealt with all of this and had to play shows without Teppei late last year & this January, or cancel this past tour. Thankfully, at this time we can focus on healing our folks at home while we share music with you on the road. I don’t think they’d want it any other way.
So with that said, we’ll see you guys this Summer. Tour dates and tickets are available here, with more dates being announced soon. Keep sending positive thoughts and/or prayers in the the direction of Mr. Kensrue and my Pops, and hold fast hope.”
