Freak Accident Derails Rev Theory Plans

Rev Theory's guitarist Julien Jorgensen suffered an injury from a freak accident at a wedding and it has forced the band to pull out of their upcoming fall dates including a tour with Five Finger Death Punch, All That Remains, and Hatebreed.

The Rev Theory camp sent over these details: While at a post-wedding reception gathering, an individual standing adjacent to Jorgensen was opening a beer bottle without an opener. It slipped, shattered on the edge, and sliced the guitarist's left hand on the follow through. The resulting cut has been operated on, and he is unable to perform at this time. A full recovery is expected.

Jorgensen shared, "I am super bummed that happened, and it is a freak accident. It is a helpless feeling. I feel bad about dropping off the tour and disappointing the fans. As soon as I am able, we will be back on the road." Singer Rich Luzzi added, "After being a band for 10 years, Rev does not feel comfortable taking the stage without our brother as it would not be a true representation of the band."

Future plans for touring will be announced once available.
