Converge show cancellations
Converge will not appear at three of their scheduled shows as a result of two separate issues. The group has provided the following explanation: "After driving overnight to Poughkeepsie from Baltimore (and almost hitting hundreds of deer in the process...), we got word that 'Rhythmden' festival has been cancelled due to 'insurance' issues. Thanks to Subzero and On Broken Wings for getting the word out to us and other bands. We hope to be back in the Poughkeepsie NY area sometime in 2K7. While we were typing the above information, Jake received a call about a death in his immediate family. So he can attend the funeral and be home to support his family, we are canceling Philadelphia and New York City shows of the tour. The shows in Buffalo, Cleveland, Levittown, and Revere shows will go on as planned as he will be able to make those shows. Apologies to all the bands, kids, and promoters who are effected by the cancellations. We will make it up one day."
