As a result of a hand injury sustained by bassist/vocalist Steev Esquivel, SKINLAB will not be joining the Jagermeister-sponsored $12 Riot Tour (also featuring DOPE, PRIMER 55, and SOCIETY 1) until Wednesday, Nov. 13 at Fitzgerald's in Houston, Texas (not Friday, Nov. 1, as previously announced). Esquivel has been receiving treatment for acute neuritis (or in layman's terms slight nerve damage to his right hand), an injury he suffered during the band's recently-completed UK tour with SOIL. The condition is treatable and he is expected to make a full recovery in time for the upcoming dates.
