It’s been five years since the last Armor For Sleep show but they decided to get back together for a run of shows supporting their smash hit record What To Do When You Are Dead

Unfortunately, due to coronavirus decimating all certainty regarding the future of live music, Armor For Sleep have announced that all of the shows are postponed until 2021. 

Armor For Sleep took to social media to share the news, as well as personal statements from frontman Ben Jorgensen, guitarist P.J. DeCicco and drummer Nash Breen

!!! POSTPONEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT !!! We’re all super bummed to have to do this, but because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are going to have to postpone our summer tour dates. ALL shows are going to be rescheduled for 2021-just getting all the details together now (all previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates). All opening bands will still open their respective shows as well @thecoldseas @neverlovedmusic @silenceofyoumusic . We are all obviously disappointed, but we are stoked to still be planning to do this in 2021 and are looking forward to playing for all of you guys again. Here are some personal messages from all of us.

Armor For Sleep’s Ben Jorgensen discusses how the move just means he has something to look forward to next year. 

Man, these are rough times indeed. First and foremost, this entire situation sucks (on a Universal level). I’m thinking of all the people out there who have been affected by this disease and/or who have had family members come down with it. Adjusting to this strange place we are all in is hard enough for everyone who is healthy, I can’t imagine also having to deal with being sick or having a family member who is sick. In terms of our shows, I’m extremely bummed we have to postpone the dates. We hadn’t played together in a while and we were all really looking forward to getting this thing going again.

But playing concerts in the near future is not really within the realm of possibility right now, and the last thing I/we would want is for people to feel unsafe at our shows or worse, for there to be the possibility of someone getting sick. So pushing the dates back makes sense. And now I have something really awesome to look forward to on the other side of this. Truly can’t wait until we can play these shows and see all of you again. We’ll announce more info ASAP. .

P.J. DeCicco reiterates that the health and safety of everyone is what is most important. 

Hey everyone- Really looking forward to jamming with y’all and bringing back some memories as well as making new ones once it’s safe to do so! Until then I wish you and yours health and safety!

Nash Breen also says how bummed he is about the Armor For Sleep postponement. 

Hey guys, We are so bummed to have to postpone our upcoming shows. I can speak for all 4 of us when I say we were so excited to see all of you again and be back together playing our music. Obviously your safety is more import
