Merchandise cancel shows after frontman Carson Cox fractures jaw

He collapsed after finishing the final leg of the band's UK tour in Leeds last weekend.
Merchandise have been forced to cancel their upcoming European and US dates after frontman Carson Cox injured himself in Leeds last week.

The band were finishing up their UK run on Saturday (5th November), and were about to head off to mainland Europe.

“After the Leeds gig, Carson lost consciousness and had a fall backstage,” a statement from the band reads. “After multiple tests, we think it was due to exhaustion and nothing more serious. During the fall, he hit his chin badly, breaking several teeth and fracturing his jaw.

“The band is currently in London waiting to see a specialist who will be advising the next course of treatment for repairing his jaw. Carson is expected to make a full recovery and we plan on making up the shows as best we can in Spring 2017.”
