Diet Cig have cancelled a gig due to the venue’s anti-LGBT policies

They're no longer playing Messiah College in Pennsylvania.
Diet Cig have cancelled an upcoming show at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

Due to take place on Wednesday 29th November, the duo have pulled the date because the college has “some really serious anti LGBT policies.”

“We have no desire to support or benefit from an institution that discriminates against its LGBT students/faculty/staff,” they explain.

The band released debut album ‘Swear I’m Good At This’ earlier this year, and played a bunch of UK shows in October.
