Hardcore band OFF! announced they've been forced to cancel the first leg of their North American tour, as drummer Justin Brown was hospitalized with an unspecified condition. OFF! released the latest LP Free LSD last month to critical acclaim.
In a post to Instagram, the band wrote: "Due to our drummer being hospitalized for a non-Covid-related emergency, we unfortunately must postpone the first leg of our North American Tour (Phoenix through Minneapolis). We’re in the process of rescheduling the affected shows and will re-announce ASAP so please hang on to your tickets. All December dates are still happening. Thanks for understanding."
We wish Justin a speedy recovery and hope to see OFF! on the road in December. You can read our very favorable review of Free LSD here.
As a side note, if you're like me and had tickets for the Bowery Ballroom show in New York City, there's a silver lining: our calendar is now free and Mercyful Fate is playing in Brooklyn—who's with me?!
