Upon A Burning Body have had to cancel their planned U.K. appearances, including sets at this year’s Download Festival and the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards.
Frontman Danny Leal has a severe inner ear infection.
Not fun stuff at all.
The band issued the following statement:
“It is with heavy hearts that Upon A Burning Body announce they are not able to perform as scheduled at this year’s Download Festival or the HMS Hammer at the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards.
“Singer Danny Leal was taken seriously ill with an inner ear infection that meant doctors would not clear him to fly. The band send their most sincere apologies and can’t wait to make it up to their U.K. fans on their headline tour this November as part of Download Freezes Over.”
