Stone Sour have just embarked on a string dates throughout Canada and the United States, but has announced guitarist Josh Rand will not be joining them. According to a statement, Rand “has checked into a treatment center” for unspecific issues and will miss all currently scheduled dates. We wish both Stone Sour and Rand the best of luck and hope that things are the best they can be at this time.
The band’s Twitter post reads:
“Unfortunately, Josh Rand has checked into a treatment center and will not be joining Stone Sour for the Canada/US tour.
“Though he will be back as soon as possible, we ask you all to keep him in your thoughts. Until then, the rest of Stone Sour will see you all on tour in Jan/Feb. Thank you.”
Get well soon, Josh!
