Defeater Frontman Releases Statement About Band Dropping Off Wonder...

Posted by - 10:59 AM on 01/29/14
Defeater frontman Derek Archambault has released a statement about why the band had to drop off The Wonder Years' spring headlining tour. The band is being replaced by Fireworks.
I have been dealing with my hip condition since an accident months ago, but this has just recently in the last few months become much more of a serious problem. The doctors and surgeons I have seen strongly recommended that I get this taken care of as soon as possible before my hip breaks in it's brittle state and causes further damage.

So unhappy about this considering I bought tickets the other day. Was really looking forward to them and I don't like fireworks at all. Bumming hard.

Defeater is the better band. Fireworks is the better band for this tour.

Hoping all goes well for Derek so they can get back to playing soon, but I'm also really looking forward to seeing Fireworks.

That's a bummer. Was looking forward to them getting all that exposure. Never bad to see Fireworks though.

Agreed, I caught them in Austin in November, and you could tell he was struggling to get around.... Still killed it when it was time to play though.

Fuck. I saw Fireworks open for TWY last spring and it made me dislike the band haha. Couldn't stand his voice after that show. I guess I'll wait even longer to finally see Defeater.

Sucks for Defeater to miss out on that exposure, but at least they had that August Burns Red tour a couple months back.

Pretty much feel the same as everyone else about this. My friends are gonna be bummed, and I wish Derek and the guys all the best while he gets taken care of, but hey, maybe we'll get some new Fireworks tunes out of it.

I like Fireworks but I was going for Defeater and Modern Baseball. Now I may not need to make the trip.
