The band tapped the pint-sized player to join them after long-time bassist Fieldy pulled out of the tour due to unforeseen circumstances.

“We are bummed Fieldy can’t join us on this run but excited to do a few gigs with a young player like Tye,” the band said in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming our brother Fieldy back when we return to the States in May.”
