Hi, what are you looking for?

Bummer Alert

Get Well Nate Newton!

Converge were forced to cancel their remaining dates due to bassist Nate Newton (who also happens to the be the frontman of Doomriders) fell ill on the road. Nate was checked into an Oklahoma hospital a few days ago for tests and seemed ok enough for the band to play one final show, as part of the big Chaos in Tejas festival. The full statement from the band reads:

“Unfortunately on our day drive from St. Louis to Austin, one of our members had a serious health scare. We rushed him to the nearest ER were he was looked at by some fine Oklahoma doctors. After a night’s stay in the hospital and a battery of tests we were able to have him discharged earlier today. We are now racing (quite literally) to make it to our show at Chaos In Tejas, albeit extremely late, to play an abbreviated set. Wish us luck.

“Because of this health issue, we are canceling the remaining few shows of this current U.S. tour so he can get home and get some medical attention asap. To those in Little Rock, Nashville, and Raleigh, we will add you to our list of places for make up shows later down the road.

“Thanks to all of you for your continued support, it is appreciated by all of us.”

Frontman Jacob Bannon talked about the issues right before the band's performance of their new track yesterday:

Nate is a total trooper. Hope you feel better soon!
