Rigor Mortis guitarist Mike Scaccia passed away late last year, and the band had been scheduled to play a tribute show in June. However the group has now checked in with the following announcement about canceling the appearance due to drummer Harden Harrison being injured:
"We’ve got some really bad and sad news to announce. The Scaccianators will be unable to perform at the Mike Scaccia/Birthday Tribute Show on June 14 at Trees.
"Rigor Mortis drummer Harden Harrison had a freak accident the other day when he motorcycle fell over and he grabbed at a weird angle it to prevent it from falling. The weight from the motorcycle did severe damage to his shoulder. He just got the results from the MRI and it was bad news. He has a torn rotator cup and has to have surgery on June 6. He will be in a sling for at least two months.
"Of course Harden is really bummed as are all of us. But we will do this Scaccianator thing in the future… probably at the Rigor Mortis CD Release Show, or maybe even next year if we do the Scaccia Tribute Show again. The good news is we still have a killer lineup and I’ve already got some good ideas in what to do to make up for us not being able to play. We will post the info once we have decided on what exactly we will do.
"We are sorry… but this was just an accident and it’s just one of those things. Please wish Harden luck on his upcoming surgery and recovery. THANKS!!!"
