Scale The Summit To Miss Show(s) After Guitarist Slices Fingertip To The Bone


Scale The Summit guitarist Chris Letchford suffered an injury to his finger last night that will see them miss at least one show of their current tour. The group said of the matter:

“It’s every guitar player’s worst nightmare…but last night Chris had a pocket knife close on his fingertip cutting it all the way down to the bone while fixing a part of our merch booth sign. An ER visit and some stitches later, he’ll be just fine, but unfortunately we’re unable play the show in Denver, CO today and possibly a few more, time will tell.

We need time for Chris’ finger to heal and time to create backing tracks for several songs Chris can’t play in the event that he still isn’t healed enough when we resume the tour. This way, we can still present as much of a Scale the Summit show as we possibly can on the remaining dates, given the circumstances. We apologize profusely in advance to our fans and we hope to be back soon to make it up to you. Please go support our brothers in Monuments, Reflections, Erra and Glass Cloud! Please stay tuned here on our page for updates on the next few shows.”

The band also shared the below photo of Letchford in the hospital.
