Shadows Fall cancels shows due to illness

Official press release: Due some recent medical ailments Shadows Fall is canceling the following headline tour dates: November 8 - Fayetteville, NC – The Norva November 9 - Jacksonville, NC - Hooligans November 10 - Charleston, SC - Ground Zero November 11 - Jacksonville, FL - The Roc Bar Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner explains:
"For those who may not know- I was diagnosed last week with acute pancreatitis - for most of the last Shadows Fall tour I was in a lot of abdominal pain which I figured was either food poisoning or a stomach bug, unfortunately it turns out to be a little more serious than that. After a trip to the ER last Monday I received the diagnosis and some pain treatment. That being said it pains me to say that due to Doctor's orders I am not cleared (nor do I even feel like I could pick up a stick) to begin touring until after I see the specialist and my blood work is back to normal, I apologize to the fans cause it kills me to not be there, but my health comes first and I need to recuperate in order to return 110%"
