The Scoop: John Warne, Jon Schneck, and Ethan Luck of Relient K have announced via the band’s Facebook page that they will not be touring with the band for its upcoming tour dates. You can read the complete message below.
“To all the amazing fans of RK:
It is with sadness that we write you to say that we will not be touring with Relient K on the upcoming tour dates. This will be the first tour that the Jo(h)n’s have missed in over eight years, and the first that Ethan has missed since he joined the band in 2008. We will miss seeing you all on the road this year, and we want to thank you for always being there for us. Hope to see you soon.
John Warne, Jon Schneck, Ethan Luck.”
The Spin: While it’s not uncommon for a single band member to miss a few dates or even a whole tour, it’s a little more uncommon for multiple members to miss all at once. Since the band just finished recording, it’s probably a little unlikely that this means more than a different touring lineup this time around, especially considering the way that the post is worded. In any case, we’ll be following the band to see if more news bubbles up in the future.
