Modern Baseball have cancelled all of their upcoming tours so that vocalist/guitar player Brendan Lukens can focus on his mental health and coping with his anxiety. You can read a statement issued through the Modern Baseball Facebook after the cut.
I just wanted to thank everyone for being so understanding and supportive during this time.
It is with much difficulty to announce that we unfortunately have canceled our upcoming plans of playing Reading and Leeds as well as our upcoming Australian tour with Iron Chic.
I’ve spent most of my life struggling with anxiety and depression, and after the last few months it’s evident that it’s time to put everything else aside to focus on making steps towards positive mental health. Like I said before, thank you to everyone who has been so understanding through all of this, the continuous support Modern Baseball and myself have received since 2011 is so amazing; and I (we) could never thank you all enough. We promise to make it to the UK and Australia soon, until then keep doing what you’re doing.
