Dashboard Confessional, scheduled to play the Ice Garden in Rostraver on Dec. 5, has postponed their North American tour due to a family issue within the band.
The emo band released the statement: "Due to a family situation that is beyond our control, we have to cancel our upcoming tour with New Found Glory, Never Shout Never, Meg & Dia and Single File. We don't take this lightly but family has to come first. As this is a last-minute development, we are still figuring out what we will do -- as soon as we know, you will know. We apologize to everyone who planned on coming to the shows. We will find a way to make it up to you."
Obviously, this is a setback in their plans to promote "Alter the Ending," a new album coming out Nov. 10. The band is still playing with the Louisville Orchestra on Nov. 7 and plans to re-schedule the proper North American tour in 2010.
Refunds for the show are available at the point of purchase.
