Can you blame them? I mean, Kylesa are fucking rad and Thrice make music for whiny emo kids who haven’t seen pussy since they fell out of one. When this tour was first announced, I was like, “Huh?” Kylesa and Thrice, on the same bill? It made no sense.
Kylesa may have come to their senses. Or maybe there is a real medical emergency preventing them from doing the tour this fall, with openers Moving Mountains.
Kylesa are claiming in an online message that “we will now have to put touring on hold until next year as one of our members deals with the terminal illness of a loved one.” I guess it’s Laura Pleasants who has the sick relative.
For her part, Pleasants said: “Kylesa is a band comprised of individuals who love music. But we are also individuals who have families just like everyone else. I have to cancel the next few months to be with family due to the declining health of a loved one. I understand that canceling a tour not only affects the immediate band members and bands we play with but it also affects the fans, the promoters, the booking agencies, the venues, etc. That is, a lot of people are involved and a lot of people are affected. I thank all of these people for their support and understanding.”
