"Again, we are deeply sorry and we promise to come back and play yall's town soon! We love you all dearly and it kills us that we won't be melting your faces next week, but please understand where we're coming from. If you were planning on attending those shows, we urge to go please go have a great time with THE PARLOR MOB and THEORY!"
