On their official Facebook page, the members posted a message addressing the incident.

"Michael Todd was arrested today on what we consider very serious charges and therefore he will not be finishing up the current tour," the members wrote. "Wes Styles, long time member of the Coheed family will take on bass duties starting tomorrow for the remaining dates. No shows will be canceled."

"We are surprised to say the least and will address the situation with Michael after the tour," they added. "For now, we just want to have a great time out here and finish with some killer shows in Boston, Poughkeepsie, Quebec City and Halifax."
