We wish @inflames, @uponaburningbodyofficial, @darkest_hour_official and @hammerheddkc a great trip! Be sure to attend one of their shows if you are able to. We are sorry to miss it.

We will use this time to work on a new album and we will still perform at the Hell and Heaven party in Mexico on December 4th. We are also working on new tour dates for 2023. See you soon!
