We have some shitty news for High On Fire fans. If you are like us you know they are one of the consistently greatest acts in modern music and are a devastating force live, but you will not get to see the band on previously announced upcoming dates at the moment. The Electric Messiah tour, sponsored by Revolver, has been derailed.

Matt Pike issued a statement and sounds devastated.

“Dear Friends and fans,
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!”

Matt, on behalf of Metal Riot, we can only imagine how shitty this feels and are sending a ton of love. Please worry about yourself first. You have already given way more to metal than most ever come close to in a lifetime.
