Due to circumstances beyond our control& with our fans safety & health in mind above all else, we are forced to postpone the "To Plant A Seed 10 Year Anniversary Tour" until July. Our team has been working tirelessly to reschedule a show in every city we have to miss. At this time, over half of the new dates are confirmed, and we will announce ALL dates in the next few days. We are absolutely devastated about this, this tour is something we've been dreaming about for a long time, and the shows that we have played so far proved to be the biggest, best & most emotional shows we have ever played as a band. A massive thank you to our fans who have been coming to these shows-the family we have made together is amazing. We are so thankful that THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, GIDEON & DAYSEEKER will all continue the tour with us in July. All tickets & VIPs will be honored with your new show date. To make the most of this unfortunate time off, we are moving up our time in the studio to finish our new album, and will be releasing new music in the coming months ahead of schedule. We love you all and are so thankful for your support & patience – Dave, Joshua, David, Andy & Lou
