Envy On The Coast Drops Off Dates

Posted by - 08:41 PM on 11/06/07
Envy On The Coast has been forced to drop off their upcoming run with Saosin due to complications with vocalist Ryan Hunter's vocal chords.
Message From The bandHey guys...Brian here. I have a bit of bad news. The past week of shows have been super rough on Ryan and he's been struggling to get through our set. Not fun...especially since he holds himself to such a high standard of performance. Yesterday at the Saints and Sinners festival were the pinnacle of his problems, vocally, and he told us that he's in dire need of a doctor to see whats wrong with him. It turns out....a combination of things were wrong with his voice. A case of acid reflux combined with a polyp and burst blood vessel on Ryan's cords had been severely affecting his ability to sing. I got off the phone with him nor more than 15 minutes ago and I can assure you this was a last resort decision and he's super upset about it. We made a decision as a band to cancel the rest of our tour with Saosin and the upcoming college shows so Ryan can rest his voice and get better. As of right now the tour with From First To Last is still happening...provided Ryan is up to it. Thank all of you for coming out to the shows and for your continued support and to everyone who was plannning on coming to the upcoming shows...we're terribly sorry and we hate the fact that we would disappoint any of you. Hopefully we'll see you guys soon.

Love,

Brian, Sal, Jer, Dan, and Ryan

have you ever heard this guy sing? it's a wonder that this is the first time they've had to drop off a tour with the notes he belts out on a nightly basis

hope he gets better soon... this is a great band and an even greater bunch of guys. hope to see them continue to get bigger and bigger

They should just have Sal sing. I love Ryan but Sal eclipses him.

I saw them last night and it was the first night without him, they just did instrumentals and the crowd sang. It was pretty cool, and props to them for not bailing on their home town, much <3 to them.

this might sound harsh but every singer and screamer, especially if you're a professional, should really learn how to take care of your vocals chords and how to sing and scream in ways that are less harsh for them. i cant imagine the wear and tear that touring must have on a singers voice
