COHEED AND CAMBRIA Forced To Postpone Tour Dates Due To Claudio Sanchez's Throat Issue - Statement Available!
"I am truly devastated to tell you that I [could not] perform [Monday night, October 22] in St. Louis and that we will be postponing all headline shows this week until after Thanksgiving.
"After holding off [Sunday] night, we felt confident I’d be good to go [on Monday], but I have spent all morning in a doctor’s office in St Louis where they did a full evaluation on my throat and found some swelling that could possibly cause some long-term damage if i continue without rest.
"I am flying back to New York to see my normal doctor and get fully on the mend.
"I know this is a big disappointment, especially for those of you in St Louis — it really hurts us to do this, but it's what we have to do."
