Floridian troublemakers Fake Problems
have been asked to leave their current tour with Anti–Flag
. The whole fiasco started at the tour's stop in Dallas, TX last night when Fake Problems vocalist/guitarist Chris Farren began criticizing the headlining band's views on America's involvement in the war in Iraq, calling vocalist Justin Sane a "freedom hater." Apparently, the feud was thought to be resolved until later in the evening when Fake Problems bassist Derek Perry proceeded to give Anti–Flag's Chris #2 an impromptu haircut, essentially clipping off the entire mohawk. Upon waking and discovering his new hairstyle, Chris #2 immediately came to blows with Perry during breakfast at a roadside Chicken and Waffles restaurant, where Anti–Flag management determined the two bands could no longer tour together and informed Fake Problems they were no longer welcome.
Derek Perry commented:
This is absurd. How better to "up that punx" than to upend their haircuts? I thought I was making my own social statement. Chris #2 obviously doesn't appreciate the value of a free trim.
No word on who will be replacing Fake Problems for the remaining dates.
