Converge has announced that their Latin American tour will be postponed due to a foot infection suffered by guitarist Kurt Ballou

Ballou was recently hospitalized for 8 days due to cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection in his foot. Despite being discharged and recovering at home, Ballou is not yet cleared for travel, forcing the band to reschedule their upcoming tour in Latin America.

Originally planned for this month, the tour has been rescheduled for November. 


Ballou explained:

Announcement: Unfortunately we need to postpone the upcoming @converge Latin American tour until the fall as I'm recovering from a random foot infection that had me hospitalized for 8 days! I'm resting at home now and doing better every day but not yet fit for travel.
I'm very disappointed this tour is being delayed, but also super stoked that we were able to add a show in Argentina!
South East Asia tour and everything else on the books are still going forward as planned.
Thanks everyone for your support and we'll see you soon!

The new tour dates are as follows:

11/02 Mexico City, MEX @ Foro Veintiocho
11/03 San Jose, CR @ Casa Rojas
11/05 Bogota, COL @ Zona 16
11/07 Santiago, CHL @ Blondie
11/09 Abasto, ARG @ Blondie
11/10 Sao Paulo, BRA @ Cine Jola
