Anberlin have released this official statement, “Hello friends!! So this tour has been going absolutely amazing and one of the best things we’ve ever been a part of. So pumped to be out with the Switchfoot guys, getting to work on some amazing things with Downtime, and also writing some new songs.So, we wanted to let you know about something that has just come up and that we had to make a decision on. Stephen has to leave the tour early to tend to some urgent family issues at home, and so we were faced with a last minute decision to either drop off the tour early OR figure out a creative way to not cancel some of our favorite cities. So we have decided to do something we have never done before, and we hope you will have as much fun with this as we will.
Starting in Dallas at the House of Blues show, we will have our close friends Phil and Dan from Story of the Year both fill in on vocals for the few remaining shows on this tour. They were available at the last minute and have agreed to help us out. This is sure to be a memorable experience, and we are beyond stoked to have those guys out with us. This is all the more reason to come out and share in this unique show experience! We assure you it will be way too much fun, so come out and do this with us!!”
