Promise Ring Pull Out Of Bad Religion Tour

Emo-rock outfit the Promise Ring have cut short their tour with veteran punks Bad Religion, citing health issues related to singer/guitarist Davey vonBohlen's recent battle with a brain tumor.

The frontman underwent surgery to remove the non-cancerous tumor in May, and the group's publicist said that vonBohlen has returned home to consult with doctors, cutting short the band's tour by one week.

The band's publicist said that vonBohlen is expected to join the band once again for a handful of shows near Christmas on the group's home turf of Milwaukee.

The band kicked off its run with Bad Religion in mid-September, and played its last date on October 28 in Jacksonville, Florida. The Promise Ring were scheduled to play with Bad Religion through November 7.

Before his surgery in May, vonBohlen had long suffered severe headaches. An MRI earlier this year revealed that the musician had developed meningioma, a benign tumor, in the outer covering

of his brain. The tumor was successfully removed, but the operation forced the band to cancel its European tour (see "Promise Ring Singer Recovering From Brain Tumor").
