Anti-Flag has been forced to cancel the remaining dates on their Canadian tour with Billy Talent. The band explained:

Due to a death in the family, we will not be playing tonight's show in Waterloo and also the show in London. We send our apologies and hope to be back to Canada sometime later this year.

Many thanks and unconditional love, and gratitude to Billy Talent and their awesome staff, and also to our friends, Rise Against and Moneen. The shows have been fantastic. Thanks to each and every one of you who came out in support of our cross Canada coat and blanket drive to help those in need. The response was incredible.

The band makes reference to their cross-Canada coat/blanket drive which had the band signing autographs, giving out posters and meeting with fans to encourage donations to various local youth shelters across the country.

The band is still scheduled to hit the road with Alexisonfire, and Set Your Goals next month.

Our condolences to Anti-Flag on their loss.
