TALLAH "Removed" From AVATAR Tour After COVID-19 Outbreak In Band's Camp

We just featured Tallah in our roundup of up-and-coming nu-metal bands and now the band is making headlines for a different reason. They have been "removed" from their current tour with Avatar, according to a statement from the band.

Tallah noted that members of the band's camp tested positive for COVID-19 and they had left the tour. They had hope to rejoin the tour after testing negative, but in a statement, revealed that Avatar's management made the decision to remove them from the band.

The group has launched a GoFundMe to cover the expenses incurred with canceling the tour. They are looking to raise $10,000 and as of this writing, are about $3,800 along.

Tallah's initial statement reads:

“Last night several members of Tallah tested positive for COVID. Unfortunately this means that we will be unable to carry on the tour with Avatar and will miss Louder Than Life Festival this weekend. It also means we are stranded in Nebraska and having to isolate for 10 days in an RV.

“We need help from our fans to pay for hotel rooms so band members can rest up, isolate properly and then get home safe. For a new band like Tallah, every single date of the tour is very important to us. Not only to play to our fans in each city but also to make the tour work financially.

“Because this tour is likely to come to an end now we are going to be down a huge amount of money as stuff has already been paid for. Anything you can afford to give would really help us out. We hope we can get back on the road soon and sorry to anyone who was looking forward to seeing us in the next few weeks.”

Their follow up statement notes “As you already know, some of our members caught COVID-19.

“Due to some miscommunication about Avatar’s COVID guidelines, their management has decided to remove us from the rest of the Going Hunting Tour.

“We would have loved to continue the tour once we got better and tested negative, but that decision was not ours to make.

“We appreciate everyone who came out to see us and wanted to see us on the rest of this tour, there is always next time.

“If you’d like to continue your support, we have setup a GoFundMe to recoup some of our losses. See you soon.”

We wish Tallah a speedy recovery and hope they get back on their feet.
