letlive have dropped off their current trek with Every Time I Die The band's statement on the matter is as follows:
"Today marks the hardest and most unfavorable decision we have ever had to make as an outfit as we must announce our departure from the current tour with Every Time I Die, The Chariot, and Kills And Thrills. Due to an inescapable issue that calls for our return home, we have been offered no alternative. Please understand this is the very last thing we would ever want, but truly, there is no other option for us at this point. We have already already begun planning to make up for our absence in the remaining regions and can assure you we will be back much sooner than you think. This goes without being said, but we'll say it anyway- go support these incredible bands. This is undoubtedly one of the most praiseworthy lineups to date. Thank you for you support and understanding. We will see you soon." [Via Lambgoat]
