Spiritbox only offered the following comment regarding their departure: "We have withdrawn from the 6 shows we were scheduled to perform on the Popular Monstour." The following dates have been affected, as they no longer feature Spiritbox.

Spiritbox dropping off the tour was rumored last week after the band removed all mention of the dates from their social media. The band caught quite a bit of backlash online upon the announcement of the tour, mostly due to the many allegations against Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radkey including violent incidents and homophobia.
Fans were also not thrilled with Crown The Empire guitarist Brandon Hoover, who had been accused by his ex-girlfriend Heidi Ferguson of abuse. Crown The Empire has since addressed the issue, saying they're looking into it and have issued a Cease & Desist against Hoover's accuser.
