Shadows Fall Cancel Four Tour Dates Due To Illness

Shadows Fall 2012

Shadows Fall had to inform fans early this morning that they would be forced to cancel four touring dates, with God Forbid, due to drummer Jason Bittner falling ill. Bittner was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis. Read what he had to say about this unfortunate scenario below and send your well-wishes in the comments section. View the axed dates after the jump.

“For most of the last Shadows Fall tour I was in a lot of abdominal pain which I figured was either food poisoning or a stomach bug, unfortunately it turns out to be a little more serious than that. That being said it pains me to say that due to doctor’s orders I am not cleared (nor do I even feel like I could pick up a stick) to begin touring until after I see the specialist and my blood work is back to normal, I apologize to the fans cause it kills me to not be there, but my health comes first and I need to recuperate in order to return 110%.”

Cancelled tour dates below:
11/8: Fayetteville, NC @ The Norva
11/9: Jacksonville, NC @ Hooligans
11/10: Charleston, SC @ Ground Zero
11/11: Jacksonville, FL @ The Roc Bar
