Descendents are currently scheduled to embark on a North American tour in August following their European trek. It is unclear whether or not those dates will be affected. Pitchfork has reached out to Descendents’ representatives for additional information.

We are truly sorry, but we have to cancel the upcoming European shows.

Our singer, Milo, had a mild heart attack last night. He’s doing fine, and is expected to make a full recovery from surgery, but will need a few weeks to recover before we can hit the road again.

Hope to see you soon.
