The PR wire has it as such:

Pennsylvania stoner/doom rockers Backwoods Payback, who are slated to kick off their tour with labelmates Lo-Pan tonight, have been forced to pull out of much of the trek due to a medical emergency. The band will play the first four shows of the tour but will be unable to continue past March 12.

Said guitarist/vocalist Mike Cummings in an official statement: “It is with heavy hearts that we are forced to drop off our tour to and from SXSW with our brothers Lo-Pan, but due to a serious medical emergency we will be unable to continue past March 12. We are deeply sorry to be missing these shows and the hang seshs that always follow. Seems like the motto has never rang more true than now……we drop out to live.”
