High On Fire Cancel Tour Over Medical Emergency

High On Fire

High On Fire have been forced to cancel another tour due to a medical emergency with singer and guitarist Matt Pike, who is at risk of losing his big toe.

As a result of the medical issue, the band pulled the plug on their Electric Messiah Tour. Late last year they were forced to cancel their Speed Of The Wizard tour when Pike underwent a partial amputation of his toe.

He broke the news of the latest cancelation with this statement, "To my brothers, my crew, and anyone else this affects. I do apologize for the inconvenience of this cancelation. I feel as though I'm explaining lightning striking twice. I wanted nothing more in the world to play these songs live, nor ever cancel something I say I'm gonna do.

"I am a warrior for our art, and have endured some painful things to what we do. The timing and repeating nature of this is my nightmare and almost impossible. Nevertheless, to save yet another toe, my big one, I have been grounded by circumstances out of my control. I will have more of a medical report to come but right now I'm at great risk of losing it, and/or a bigger portion of my foot due to Diabetes. Which I have been managing very well.

"It just shows how this disease can affect our lives. Please forgive me, and if you know anything about me, you know this is not like me. We will be back!"
