    Here's the statement...It appears to be from CATS to folks that had already bought tickets.

    Greetings CATS fans,

    Like you we were all deeply saddened and shocked by Neal’s death several weeks ago. Neal was our brother and partner in musical adventures and we miss him terribly. We have gone through every emotion that you can imagine and several weeks of intense soul searching. During that time we have fielded countless messages from people that have been moved by our music as well as our fellow musicians who have urged us to continue on the path that was serendipitously put in front of us following the Fare Thee Well shows. When we collectively wrote that music 4 years ago, we never expected that it would get the recognition that it did, nor did we expect that we would ever play any live shows. It just all sort of happened naturally. We let the music lead us. We are going to let the music continue to lead us on this wild journey. The new record we recently recorded will be released in early 2020. Neal was proud of it and wanted to make sure it made its way to you. We couldn’t agree more. We understand that no one will be Neal but we have been jamming with some very good friends that have offered to step up. Playing music has helped us grieve and begin to reconcile our feelings and we think that continuing forward and performing will help all of us collectively. We are excited to share the new music with you and we look forward to seeing you next month at our west coast shows and down the road.

    God save the child that rings that bell
    It may have one good ring, baby, you can't tell
    One watch by night, one watch by day
    If you get confused listen to the music play
    Some come to laugh their past away
    Some come to make it just one more day
    Whichever way your pleasure tends
    If you plant ice you're gonna harvest the wind
    In Franklin's tower the four winds sleep
    Like four lean hounds the lighthouse keep
    Wildflower seed on the sand and wind
    May the four winds blow you home again
