Evile guitarist Ol Drake has apparantly broken his jaw and as such the band has cancelled all their forthcoming tour dates. A posting from Evile frontman Matt Drake reads as follows:

"Ol collapsed last night and fractured his jaw and split his chin on the ground. Luckily his beard absorbed some of the blow. He's been in hospital and had X-rays and been stitched up, but he's unable to play - he can't really move - he's a mess. Ol doesn't drink, it seems to be some medical problem that's being investigated. They did an ECG and we're awaiting results. Unfortunately we're having to pull out of the tour to get home to the UK where Ol can recuperate and have some follow-up tests.

"We apologise to all our fans and to anyone planning to see us at the shows. As you can imagine we're devastated we can't play, but Ol's health comes first and that's currently our priority. We will update our fans through the MySpace with news when we're back home. We won't be on any of the Satyricon tour from today."

That's a bloody shame, they're from my area and put on some kick a$$ shows when they were unsigned and more so now that the one of the hottest metal bands around. Get well soon Ol!
