Serious illness cuases In Medias Res to cancel remaining tour dates
Vancouver band In Media Res has cancelled its scheduled December shows.
While on tour in November, lead singer Andrew Lee learned his father has thyroid cancer, and has only a few weeks to a few months to live.
If you’d like to help the band out in this trying time, they are asking fans and supporters to download by donation an acoustic version of their song “Comb Back Down”, recorded at the hospital by Lee where his dad is a patient. All funds will be used to help Andrew and his family during this exceptionally difficult time. In Media Res website: http://www.imr.ca
