Last month, YOB frontman Mike Scheidt revealed that he was diagnosed with diverticulitis and will need surgery. Now he's rescheduled YOB's Brooklyn and Austin shows -- originally set for February -- in lieu of the surgery. The band writes:

NY & Austin friends:

With great regret, we have to reschedule our shows this month. They will now take place on June 23rd to 26th.

We were so looking forward to playing for you and sharing the stage with many good friends!

Mike will do everything in his power to heal up so that we can come back in June stronger than ever!! All tickets will be honored and, if you’re unable to attend in June, you’ll be offered a refund. We will make it up to you!! Thank you for your understanding and support!!

With love,
Mike, Travis, and Aaron / YOB.

The Brooklyn shows will now happen June 23, 24, and 25 at Saint Vitus. All tickets purchased for the February shows will be honored, and refunds are available if you can't make the new date.

Good luck to Mike Scheidt on his surgery and here's to a speedy recovery!
