ARKAEA, die Band um die FEAR FACTORY Musiker Christian Olde Wolbers (guitar) und Raymond Herrera (drums), mussten ihre Teilnahme an den restlichen fünf Gigs der Tour mit KITTIE durch Nord America aufgrund gesundheitlicher Probleme ihres Sängers Jon Howard absagen.
Jon gab daraufhin folgendes Statement an die Presse weiter: "For the past week, I had been pushing myself to perform with the flu and I hoped it would eventually fade away, but it got worse. Once the sickness moved into my lungs I took my ass to the clinic in
. I had a chest x-ray and it turns out I have pneumonia. The doctor almost put me into a hospital bed I was so bad... I decided my health is the most important and I came home to rest.”
