BUTTONHOOK, the Atlanta-based band featuring former NEUROTICA guitarist Mike Gaudreau and ex-DEN OF THIEVES singer Roman Carson, have postponed their previously announced West Coast tour "due to circumstances beyond their control," according to a statement from the group. "The band will return to Atlanta on July 28, 2004. Vocalist Roman Carson will be seeking the medical attention of his physician to treat a throat infection. This decision was made following their Baltimore show. It was apparent to their management team, CMT Productions, that Roman could not continue with the tour and required medical attention. BUTTONHOOK will appear at their scheduled appearances through July 27, 2004 before taking a hiatus while Roman recuperates."
