Drummer Matt Halpern will have to sit out Periphery’s October 2012 European tour with the Safety Fire and Between The Buried and Me.
Why? Well, he was involved in an “unfortunate accident” on Saturday and dislocated his shoulder.
“[Matt will] be OK, but he won’t be able to play for part of our current European tour,” says the band online. “Luckily, our good drummer friends, Mike Malyan of Monuments and Boris Le Gal of Chimp Spanner will be stepping up to fill Matt’s shoes for this run.”
“Please send Matt your love, and expect him back behind the kit maybe even as soon as the end of this current tour!”
Remember that Periphery recently dropped off the West Coast leg of the “Summer Slaughter Tour” “due to a family emergency.”
Not that the two are in any way connected.
