Rosetta cuts tour short
Rosetta has cancelled the remaining ten shows of their current tour. Here's a statement from the band: "Several of the shows we're dropping had been cancelled already, before we even made this decision, making drives and paying for gas more difficult... In addition, we have had a lot of trouble over the last two weeks with negligent promoters and show cancellations (as you may have seen from this page). We sold out of merch in the Southwest and despite having placed an order far enough in advance to get it shipped to us mid-tour, UPS dropped the ball not once but several times, meaning that weeks later we still have nothing to sell. To cap all of this off, Armine got sick and we had to take him to the ER. He ended up with a UTI due to dehydration (most likely a product of the extreme heat that seemed to follow us everywhere). He will be ok, but after playing several instrumental shows, and having to worry about whether he was getting worse or not, that pretty much put the last few nails in the coffin. We felt that it was wiser to be safe and return home early. We are truly sorry if this means that you won't get to see us play in the next couple weeks. We will be back on tour early next year and will get to all the places we've missed."
