Weedeater Postpone Immediate Live Dates Due To Positive COVID-19 Cases, Announce July Tour

Weedeater have postponed their immediate live dates due to positive COVID-19 cases within their camp. The shows will be rescheduled.

The band commented:

“Hey everybody, sorry to say that there have been at least two confirmed cases of Covid in the WEEDEATER touring party, and because of the quarantine periods and the near certainty that more people in the group either are infected or will get infected in the meantime, and the associated quarantine times for all, we simply have no choice but to postpone the remaining shows on this tour. This is a massive disappointment as this tour was really incredible and all the bands were on point. Thanks to all of you who came out to the shows that we were able to play. For the rest of you, we will get this back on track asap and see you soon. All shows will remain on sale and we will reschedule the dates this year. We are aiming to keep the same bands on the bill (aside from the festival dates) and let this play out as it was intended. We will have the rescheduled dates ready to announce soon along with some other tour dates this summer so stay tuned and thanks as always for your support.”

Ex-Weedeater Drummer Michael Kirkum Arrested For Putting Meth In His Wife’s Drink

According to WECT News 6, ex-Weedeater drummer Michael Kirkum has been arrested for allegedly putting meth in his wife’s rum. The 47-year-old is facing charges of secret assault, assault on a female, resisting arrest, and two counts of misdemeanor child abuse.

Kirkum‘s wife, who recently hired a divorce lawyer, told police that her drink had an odd bitter taste and that she began worrying after having insomnia for a day and a half. She ultimately went to the hospital, where she tested positive for methamphetamine.

Authorities were sent to a residence in North Carolina, where Kirkum allegedly answered the door with a gun. He then tried to escape before getting caught. The police will be testing the rum for drugs and if it is positive, Kirkum may face further charges. His bond is currently set at $100,000.
