The Bronx have announced that they will be joining Bad Religion on their upcoming spring tour in place of Against Me!, who recently dropped off. Read a statement from Bad Religion that was posted on their Facebook page about the new addition to the tour: 

“Dear everyone, finding a band to fill in 5 days before a tour starts is incredibly tough. it's harder than just calling fat mike at home to see what's up. we've been busting our butts and i'm really happy to say that our friends The Bronx will be able to join us starting from washington D.C. onward for the rest of the tour. we really do love them, and can't thank them enough for stepping up to the plate at the last minute…”

Against Me! announced that they were dropping off the tour on Monday with the following statement: 

“Unfortunately we have to cancel all of our appearances scheduled for the upcoming tour with Bad Religion and Polar Bear Club.

Canceling a tour is definitely not a decision we would make lightly. At this moment, due to our current uncertainty over who is going to be playing drums with us, we feel like we are lacking the ability to put on the show our fans deserve and we think that the best thing for us to do right now is take some time to regroup and finish a record.

Our most sincere apologies to Bad Religion, Polar Club and all of the agents and promoters involved with the tour but most importantly to the fans who were coming out to see us.
If anyone who bought tickets doesn't want to go to the show now or walks away from the show feeling disappointed we'll definitely do our best to accommodate some spots on our guest list next time we pass through your town, which hopefully won't be too long from now.

Sincere apologies. – Against Me!”
