While the post was quickly taken down, Slaves addressed the situation on their official Facebook page, saying, “Jonny posted a short tweet, surprised and angry of the situation and deleted the post within 10 minutes of talks between the band and the Blessthefall dudes and it all being put into perspective.”

Read their statement in full below.

Since its pushing its way around the internet we will address the situation with blessthefall.

yea we were confirmed on their up coming tour, we were put on this tour because we were going to play 3 weeks on warped tour which is huge promo and hype. This is a business, should a band bring out support that played 3 shows since April because they got kicked off warped for a tour that starts in October ? Probably not. 

Blessthefall pays management and their team to make the best business decisions there is for the band. Emarosa was considered for this tour before we were ever confirmed. I remember speaking to members of btf about the options and them being one. 

They coincidently were the only band available for the tour short notice. We don't believe BTF did anything out of hatred for our band. We are still good friends with the guys in BTF, and have another Fall tour we think you all are going to love.

Jonny posted a short tweet, surprised and angry of the situation and deleted the post within 10 minutes of talks between the band and the blessthefall dudes and it all being put into perspective. Jonny nor our band have hate for btf, great dudes, great music, great hair. 

All love”
