On its website, Coheed and Cambria addressed Todd's arrest, saying he's off the tour.

"Michael Todd was arrested today on what we consider very serious charges and therefore he will not be finishing up the current tour," a statement read. "Wes Styles, longtime 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. 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."

The group has released five studio albums, including its most recent, "Year of the Black Rainbow," in 2010.
