“As previously announced, I was scheduled to have surgery following our last show at ‘Blue Ridge Rock Festival‘. My condition has worsened and my physician has advised me against performing again prior to surgery.

I was previously involved in a car accident and broke the middle finger on my left hand. I now suffer from trigger finger, a condition that causes my finger to lock. I received a series of cortisone shots to alleviate the problem, however, the cure rate is about 70%. Unfortunately, that procedure did not work in my case.

I am devastated that my finger has been very stiff and painful. We have been performing at our very best and the support of all those who have paid tribute to Vinnie Paul has really helped us recover from our loss. We will reschedule the headline shows. I’m really sorry we could not perform for you this time… But we will see you soon!


The cancelled dates include:

09/06 Jacksonville, NC – The Tarheel
09/07 Greenville, SC – The Firmament
09/08 Concord, VA – Blue Ridge Rock Festival

The band’s new album “Welcome Home” is headed for a September 27th release date.
