Poli van Dam has revealed that she will be missing the band’s upcoming tour with Bayside, Senses Fail, and Hawthorne Heights. Remmington will be filling in.
Poli van Dam issued the following statement:
“Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Poli. I have an announcement to make about the upcoming Bombpops tour with Bayside, Hawthorne Heights, and Senses Fail. Unfortunately, I will not be joining my band on this one.
In February of this year, I found out that there was going to be another BabyPop on the way, in May I miscarried. To say that this was physically and emotionally exhausting is an understatement, but it made me realize that right now I need to focus on my health and my family.
Being a Type 1 Diabetic, I’ve put my health on the backburner perhaps too often, there aren’t any regrets, but it has become clear that I need to see this through. Life on the road is grueling to say the least and I’ve had my fair share of close calls – seizures, ambulances, hospitals, oh my!
But without further ado, I’m so stoked to announce that the one and only Remmington ( @rmmngtn )will be stepping in for me on these shows and the band is going to crush it out there. They have all my support and well wishes 100%, I’m grateful they are willing to all go out there and keep our songs alive.
Thank you to everybody who has supported the band and my family throughout this journey and there’s nothing but more epicness to come. See you all soon! Xoxo Poli van D”
