The Head and the Heart are set to be without their frontman for their forthcoming US tour.



The band have revealed that Josiah Johnson is “battling addiction and focusing on his recovery” and that “Josiah continues to be a strong presence within the band, working with us to choose someone to temporarily fill in for him at the shows.”



The full statement reads:



“Hello from The Head and the Heart HQ. We have been working on a new album and are looking forward to getting back out on the road to do what we love, playing shows for our fans. We value our fans’ support, and in that spirit we wanted you to hear from us first that Josiah will not be joining us on stage this time around. Josiah is battling addiction and focusing on his recovery, with all of us (and all of you) providing him with love, support and the privacy he needs to be strong on his journey, for as long as it takes for him to feel solid and whole again. This is not an easy thing for us as he is very much a part of our family. Josiah continues to be a strong presence within the band, working with us to choose someone to temporarily fill in for him at the shows. We really look forward to seeing you on the road!”
