High On Fire Pulls Out Of Municipal Waste Tour

High On Fire has announced that they have had to pull out of the Speed Of The Wizard tour, alongside Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust and Haunt.

The band has provided a statement: "(Guitarist, vocalist) Matt (Pike) has a medical emergency culminating in the partial amputation of one of his toes. The scheduling of this procedure is immediate and the recovery time will overlap our intended tour with MW. We will unfortunately be unable to participate in this tour but will be back stronger than ever in 2019!"

The tour itself will continue on without High on Fire as scheduled. Municipal Waste has provided a statement: "First and foremost we wish our friend Matt the best of luck with his recovery. We need him, the metal world in general needs him. We would much rather have him miss a tour to heal up rather than not having any more Matt Pike music in the future. High On Fire‘s new album is amazing and we love him and his band mates so much. That being said after much discussion us Toxic and Haunt are still going to do the tour. It just makes sense, why make something negative worse? Get better Matt we love you."

Earlier this month, High On Fire frontman Matt Pike was interviewed by Metal Underground, where he discussed the band's new album, "Electric Messiah," Lemmy and more. You can check it out below. More...

Saxon Drummer Attacked By Dog

Nigel Glockler, the drummer for British heavy metal icons Saxon, has revealed that part of his nose had to be re-attached after he was attacked by a dog last Friday night. A post on his Facebook page reads as follows:

"I was at the pub last night, petting a dog when it decided it did not like my face and took off half my nose. I've had over 100 stitches inside and out of the nose and it's been reattached. (Wife) Gina says between this and the scar on my scalp I should change my name to FrankenNigel. The good news is no problems for the upcoming shows - see you soon!"
