Mastodon Cancels Summer Tour

...And no, it's not because of Brent.

Atlanta progressive metallers MASTODON have cancelled their previously announced summer tour, which scheduled to launch in Germany on June 5 and be completed in Finland on July 3. The band's guitarist, Bill Kelleher, was diagnosed with pancreatitis (a sudden inflammation of the pancreas which can have severe complications and high mortality despite treatment) and was advised by doctors to pursue further medication. Doctors are optimistic and expect a full recovery in the coming weeks for Bill, as the band is eager to take part in the BlackDiamondSkye tour, along with ALICE IN CHAINS and DEFTONES, scheduled to open in Chicago on September 16.


I feel for Bill, some of my family has also had pancreatitis as well. I really hope while they take this time off Brent will also get his shit together.

Get well soon, Bill.

Hate to say it, but this should be Brent's liver, not Bill's pancreas.

Damn when I was guessing they wouldn't make the AIC/Deftones tour I figured it would be other reasons but not this. What a fun depressing metal day this has turned out to be.

Just a question, do you guys consider any of the members of this band replaceable?

I don't know if any are...

Troy and Brann are the least expendable by far. Both guitarists are extremely good, but less essential to what makes Mastodon Mastodon in my opinion.

Damnit, the English language apparently failed me. Reading the 2nd time made me feel that much more stupid but yes thank you for pointing that out for me.

None of the dates affect me but this could be terrible.

No. If something were to happen I think they would have the integrity to stop using the title of Mastodon.
