Anthony Raneri will be missing the final three shows on Bayside's current tour because he is flying home to be a daddy. Members from Motion City Soundtrack, State Champs, and This Is Hell will be helping out the band during Raneri's absence. In the meantime, we'd like to send out our congratulations to Anthony and his fiancee!
