TBS Drop Off The Expendables Tour!

Santa Cruz’s reggae punk rockers, The Expendables, have announced that Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds will no longer be joining them on their “Life’s A Beach” Tour scheduled to start in March and end mid-April.

The reason for dropping out is still undetermined, even after fans searched for answers on the Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds Facebook page:

“Hey guys, we just got word you had to cancel out of the tour with Expendables, we have tickets for the Baltimore show and are bummed! Hope all is well, we will miss you guys!”

In response, the band appreciated the support but did not disclose any more information.

Stepping up to the plate and filling the spot will be Southern California’s emerging band Pacific Dub. With a coastal Reggae-Rock vibe, these guys are sure to fit right in with the tour’s laid-back ambiance. The Expendables showed their disappointment, yet support for Pacific Dub in a post:

“Hey everyone, we are stoked for all of the upcoming Life’s a Beach shows! Making our way around the country again is going to be amazing! Unfortunately Tomorrows Bad Seeds had to cancel off our Life’s a Beach tour but we are excited to announce Pacific Dub for select dates. Other support bands will be announced shortly!”

For fans, this switch in lineup could be a huge disappointment, or great news depending on where their music loyalties lie. Optimistic followers voiced their love for both bands saying that either way the tour is going to be the highlight of their year. Other fans did not take the news so well:

“Dudes that’s lame!!!!!! Get those f**kers back!!!!”

Being seasoned veterans to the touring lifestyle, The Expendables will keep themselves more than busy with the rigorous back-to-back shows they’ve planned. Kicking off in California, the band will move eastward and then head on back to their home state to finish up the tour with April 20th being the grand finale.
