To try and explain, I've been suffering (but coping) with tinnitus and hearing loss for some time now. Recently however it has significantly worsened. I engaged with the audiology services and they are now trying to manage the condition so that at some point I might be able to perform again. But this will take time and some lifestyle adjustments. I recognise lots of people suffer with tinnitus and manage to function so I’m very hopeful - it’s just unfortunate mine seems to have gone to the next level, right at the point Dub Sex were due to start rehearsing and playing gigs again.
As you might imagine we are incredibly disappointed at not being able to honour the Leeds and Hebden Bridge shows. Even though we were only playing support sets, we know people had made arrangements to attend especially to see Dub Sex play ... so I can’t apologise enough for the inconvenience caused to everybody (including our friends Chameleons Vox and the promoters).
We’ve been truly humbled by the response to the re-release of our music this year so I really, really hope to be able to bring you more positive news soon as things develop.
