"We want to first thank everyone for their over the top support this week during a difficult time for the band. The
two nights at Terminal 5 have been so much fun musically, and none of it would have been possible without our
fans' unwavering support. Special thanks to Greenie, Deitch, and Darren for kicking major ass behind the kit these
first two nights.
We are sad and sorry to report that Allen will not be able to perform with the band on December 30th and 31st at
Tower in Philly. When we first made the announcement earlier in the week, Allen's prognosis was for a quick
recovery and for him to be released from the hospital yesterday. As of this morning, Allen's doctors have not
him to travel or perform. Please send your best wishes, as he is currently in the ICU. Allen's health is of paramount
importance, and we cannot do anything that would jeopardize his full recovery.
In his place, we will be bringing two amazing drummers with us to the Tower. The first is the doctor himself, Sam
Altman. Sammy graciously changed his own New Year's plans to fill the void. The second is Johnny Rabb, our friend
and drummer from BioDiesel. Allen is beyond disappointed that he will not be able to play on two of the most
important shows of the year, but was instrumental in helping connect us with Johnny Rabb.
We are going the extra mile to make sure that we are ready musically to deliver 3 more kick ass shows and ring in
2011 on a high note. See you tonight!
