Ex-PANTERA/DOWN bassist Rex Brown has issued the following statement:
"It is with my deepest apologies to let you know that I will not be joining the band on the first leg of the forthcoming US/Canada tour. It has been mutually agreed upon between myself and the guys that I take this time to address some personal issues. Make no mistake I will be joining my brothers on the second leg of the tour and in the studio in the very near future. This is of utmost importance at this time. Thank you all for your support and understanding. I will see y'all really soon!
