FORT WAYNE, Ind. (CelebrityAccess) — Indie rockers The Fossil Youth and Grey Gordon have pulled the plug on their current tour of the U.S., after a series of show cancellations made the tour financially unviable.
The tour was set to run until October 28th but the Facebook pages of the two bands reveal a litany of canceled shows. A followup post on Grey Gordon's Facebook page announces the cancellation of the remainder of the tourdates:
It saddens me to announce that myself and Fossil Youth were forced to cancel the remaining dates on our tour together. We obviously loathe the fact that we have to do this, but essentially, so many shows were cancelled that we ultimately had not even 2/3 of our original dates. With the driving distances, road expenses, etc., it became financially impossible for us to continue. Besides which, the prospect of logistically working out the process of playing only 10 shows over the next 23 days was simply too daunting to manage on all fronts. I wish so badly that we could play the remaining shows, and it feels like a defeat having to do this, but sometimes things just sort of fall apart. As of right now, I’m regrouping so that I can hit it harder and smarter next time, and crossing my fingers that we get ahold of some better promoters and luck the next time around. My lifestyle is admittedly pretty insane, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Thanks so much to everyone who came out to the shows, put us up, gave us places to play and supported us in any way. We’ll see y’all again very soon.
Grey Gordon was touring in support of his latest album "Forget I Brought It Up", which dropped on Sept. 2nd on No Sleep Records. The Fossil Youth were supporting their album "Empty Handed, Heavy Hearted."
