High On Fire Pull Out Of “Mayhem Festival”, Matt Pike To Enter Rehab

High On Fire have officially announced their decision to pull out of “Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival” as band frontman/guitarist Matt Pike enters treatment for alcohol rehabilitation. The group have also suspended all of their upcoming touring plans indefinitely as Pike undergoes treatment.

The following statement was issued on the matter:

High on Fire would like to thank everyone involved with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival for the opportunity to be a part of this year’s tour. We regretfully will have to bow out as our friend and bandmate begins his recovery, but very much appreciate having been asked to be a part of this summer’s festival run.”

Of course this news also means that a spot on this summers “Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival” is now up for grabs. No word yet on who will replace the band on the bill.
