High On Fire Back Out Of November Tour As Matt Pike Faces Emergency Medical Amputation


0

A medical emergency has seen High On Fire vacate their co-headlining spot alongside Municipal Wizard on the ‘The Speed Of The Wizard Tour‘. Said emergency calls for a partial amputation of one of the toes of High On Fire vocalist/guitarist Matt Pike. The following statement was issued on the matter by High On Fire:

Matt has a medical emergency culminating in the partial amputation of one of his toes. The scheduling of this procedure is immediate and the recovery time will overlap our intended tour with MW. We will unfortunately be unable to participate in this tour but will be back stronger than ever in 2019!”

Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust and Haunt intend to continue on with the previously booked tour and issued the below statement:

“First and foremost we wish our friend Matt the best of luck with his recovery. We need him, the metal world in general needs him. We would much rather have him miss a tour to heal up rather than not having any more Matt Pike music in the future. High On Fire‘s new album is amazing and we love him and his band mates so much. That being said after much discussion us Toxic and Haunt are still going to do the tour. It just makes sense, why make something negative worse? Get better Matt we love you.”
