Garret Rapp made the announcement on social media, saying he has “personal and urgent family matters prohibiting me from being gone and need to take this time to focus on being home and benign.”
Although the band will not be performing, drummer Steve Carey will be heading out on the tour doing drum duties for Blessthefall.
Read Rapp’s statement in full below:
Due to personal conflicts, I regret to inform you that TCM will not be able to be part of The Selective Hearing Tour. We strongly encourage you all to attend the tour and especially say hello to our drummer Steve who will be doing drum duties for Bless the Fall. I have personal and urgent family matters prohibiting me from being gone and need to take this time to focus on being home and benign. We will be releasing some new material shortly, so please stay tuned for that. I'm sorry we'll miss you guys, please have a blast at the shows and give massive love to all our friends on the tour.
He does explain that the Color Morale will be releasing new material shortly, telling fans to give their love to all the other bands on tour.
The Selective Hearing Tour will kick off Oct. 6 in Nürnberg, Germany with Our Last Night and Blessthefall, with New Volume hopping onboard for the last few dates of the tour. You can see the full list of cities and dates below:
