Thought some peeps here might want to see this..
It is with deep regret that we are having to cancel our appearance at this Saturday's awesome Bonefest in Leeds. Unfortunately, over December and January, John has to undergo a pretty hardcore treatment for his nagging ongoing chronic fatigue syndrome, which is an immune system disorder caused by the build up of toxins in the central nervous system. The treatment involves manipulation of the spine which works to aid drainage of toxins out of the cerebrospinal fluid and into the blood stream. Basically, it gets a lot worse before it gets better, and it has taken its toll much quicker than expected. As a result, he has been advised by his doctor not to travel or play shows for the time being. John has been soldiering on through our extensive touring schedule of the past few months but it's meant that he really has to take this time off to recover properly, otherwise future touring may not even be an option!
The Bonefest all dayer has an absolutely stellar line up - we are sure it will be an awesome day with or without us - and we'll come and play the next one if they'll have us! Even so, we're really, really sorry to disappoint everyone who might have been coming to see us on this occasion.
Get your "get better JBJ"s in, and we hope to see you on tour in the new year.
