Damn, dude. This is fucking heavy shit.
Oakland, California’s High On Fire have issued a press release, saying they have withdrawn from this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.
That’s because frontman and guitarist Matt Pike is entering treatment for alcohol rehabilitation.
Damn, man. I have seen this dude sauced at shows, but didn’t realize it was that bad.
OK, maybe I did. But…still. Damn, man.
High On Fire will put its scheduled touring plans on hold indefinitely as Pike takes the necessary steps towards regaining his health.
In a statement, the band thanks “everyone involved with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival for the opportunity to be a part of this year’s tour.
“We regretfully will have to bow out as our friend and bandmate begins his recovery, but very much appreciate having been asked to be a part of this summer’s festival run.”
