MCS had to pull out of the Bunbury Festival in July, below is a note from the band posted on their Facebook page:

"Unfortunately we are having to pull off of The Bunbury festival in Cincinnati, OH on July 14th. We were really excited to play this festival with such a great line up of bands that we love and respect. And Cincy fans, it's been awhile, so we will see you in the fall. Something has come up that will take us overseas. We will announce that soon."
