In an official announcement on its website on Friday, Oct. 8, Bullet For My Valentine announced that bassist Jason James will briefly leave the band’s current North American tour to tend to a family matter starting on Oct. 8.

“He will be rejoining the band on October 18th in Calgary, AB,” the announcement said.

During James’ 10-day absence, the tour will continue with no dates cancelled. BFMV guitar tech Calvin Roffey will assume bass duties until James returns.
