"Puddle Of Mudd has cancelled all their upcoming concerts including the shows September 15 and 16 at The Machine Shop," wrote the venue. "This is not a 'due to circumstances beyond our control' cancellation. This is 100% Wes. The Machine Shop, his band and everyone involved are very disappointed.

"We will not be postponing the shows as we are not ever rescheduling Puddle Of Mudd. All tickets purchased through Etix will be automatically refunded. All hard tickets can be refunded at point of purchase. Thank you and please know that all of us at The Machine Shop appreciate your support and understanding."

Scantlin has now issued his own statement on the matter, saying that Puddle Of Mudd's upcoming shows were booked without his consent. Scantlin further adds that he'll be taking this time to "regroup and make necessary changes."

"I would like to take a moment to address recent developments regarding upcoming Puddle Of Mudd shows," said Scantlin. "I believe it's important to provide my perspective on this matter.

"I would like to clarify that the shows in question were set up without my consent by my former management team. I told my team at the time more than once that no shows should be booked without my authorization. I never agreed to these shows.

"In light of these circumstances, I have made the decision to take this time to regroup and make necessary changes. It is essential to ensure that the future of my music career is built on a foundation of trust, transparency, and genuine collaboration.

"I am deeply grateful for your understanding, continued support, and patience during this transitional period. Thank you, Wes".
