Earlier today, it was announced that, due to a medical condition contracted by Taylor Momsen, lead singer for SnoCore headliner The Pretty Reckless, the band was going to have to pull out of the tour, and the tour itself was going to have to be cancelled just one day before it was scheduled to kick off in Lincoln, Nebraska. Here is the official statement posted on the Facebook event page for the Wooly's show:

Taylor Momsen and her band, The Pretty Reckless, have unfortunately been forced to pull out of the forthcoming SnoCore Tour, which they were set to headline this year. Due to acute laryngitis and walking pneumonia, Taylor Momsen has been placed on vocal rest for the time being. Originally set to kick off 1/29 in Lincoln, NE, The SnoCore Tour--a celebration of music and winter sports also featuring Heaven’s Basement, The Letter Black, Crobot and Empire Street this year--has been cancelled.

The band regrets this inconvenience to all the fans who bought tickets, which will be refunded at the point of purchase, and looks forward to seeing everyone later in the year.

The Pretty Reckless is still currently planning to release their new album, Going to Hell, on March 17. You can check out the title track in the nearby video.
