Cold Cancel “13 Ways To Bleed Onstage” Fall Tour Due To Tour Bus/Driver “Shortage”


Last week saw alternative metal veterans Cold announce the routing for a tour celebrating their 2000 sophomore album “13 Ways To Bleed On Stage“. Support on that trek, which was set to run up and down the East Coast of the U.S. through September, was due to come from The Crowned, LYLVC and The Stone Eye.

However, this past Tuesday (July 19th), Cold announced that the trek has been cancelled, citing a shortage of available tour buses and drivers. The band commented:

“We have some unfortunate news. Due to the impending Fall bus and driver shortage, it is with great sadness and regret that we have to cancel the upcoming 13 Ways to Bleed On Stage East Coast Tour.

We received notice the day AFTER we announced the tour, that our bus had fallen through, and sadly, we have no replacement as there are no busses available. We visited every option in attempt to remedy this situation with all efforts to no avail.

****All tickets will be refunded at point of purchase****

There is currently a wait list for artists now with many of the bus companies in the US, as bands are hitting it hard for fall, so we are not the only band that will be affected by this. The few buses that are available are out of our affordable price range. The options that are left are not worth risking the band and our crew’s safety.

We want to assure you that our team have worked tirelessly for MONTHS setting this tour up, so this is not what any of us wanted or expected. We NEVER want to let our fans or the bands scheduled for our tours down. But things happen sometimes that we have no control of. So we must keep positive and move forward.

We have every intention to be out for a FULL national tour in the Spring of the upcoming year. So, keep your heads up and keep supporting live music. We will all see you soon.

Sending our best,
