Music’s own Craig Owens (frontman of D.R.U.G.S and ex-frontman of Chiodos) is growing up, as he has been given the chance to star in his very first movie. The opportunity comes at a cost though, as he is forced to cancel three of his band’s Warped Tour dates in order to do the movie. Hopefully his film career is as successful as his music one!

Here is the note that Owens wrote via his Tumblr page breaking the good and bad news to his fans:

Hey everyone! 

So I have some exciting, yet bittersweet news. I’ve been offered a once in a lifetime opportunity, and will be filming my first movie! It’s always been a dream of mine to be in the movies, and acting has always been a huge passion in my heart and in my life. When this entire thing came up, I knew that it was something that was meant to happen.

Unfortunately, this opportunity comes at the same time as a few of the Warped Tour dates coming up. So, with a heavy heart I have to say that the band will not be playing the shows on the 17th, 19th, & 20th of July. Warped Tour has been gracious enough to let me follow my dreams, and fulfill my obligations that I had previously made months prior. It has also been a life changing tour, that I respect, enjoy and am always honored to be a part of. The things that Warped Tour does for it’s bands, and organizations is overwhelming to say the least. 

Now, with all of that being said, the rest of the band will still be attending these dates, doing signings, etc. I urge you to still come out to support the rest of the guys, and the entire tour itself. We will be making this up to all of you in the future, so PLEASE KEEP YOUR TICKET STUBS for a special show, meet and greets, merchandise offers, etc..

Wish me luck on my journey, and I will be back to rock Warped Tour on the 21st of July in Camden, NJ !!

Love all of you guys with all of my heart,

Craig & D.R.U.G.S.

Looks like he’s creating a win-win for fans who won’t be able to see the band perform at these three dates. I’m excited to hear more about Owens’ upcoming film- it’s definitely one I will be seeing just for him!

What do you think of this news? Are you going to any of the cancelled dates?
