Blabbermouth.net (owned by Coal Chamber�s record label Roadrunner Records) is reporting that Coal Chamber have pulled out of the Jagermeister tour with Drowning Pool and Ill Nino and are on the verge of splitting up.

According to the Blabbermouth report Coal Chamber frontman Dez Fafara and lead guitarist Meegs have been seen in heated arguments with each other during the tour, culminating in an on stage fight between the two last Wednesday night (4-17). During a concert in Lubbock, Texas Meegs reportedly hit Dez with his guitar, spit on him various times and kicked speakers off the stage. 

The band pulled out of the current tour late last week and headed home to California to contemplate the future of the band. They do have a new album called �Dark Days� scheduled for release on May 7th. 

This is the second tour the band has pulled out of prematurely over the past few years. They pulled out of the Tattoo The Earth Tour back in July of 2000 to reportedly work on their studio album.
