It has been announced that Bring Me The Horizon frontman has damaged his vocal cords and will have to cancel tour dates in America to aid his recuperation.
Sykes took to social media to announce the hard decision the band had to make. Sykes said: “I’m gutted to announce we have to cancel the remainder of our American tour. I’ve ruptured my right vocal chord, and I’ve been told if I don’t rest it immediately I’m in serious danger of doing permanent damage.”
The news will come as a shock to their fans eagerly awaiting the band’s championed live performance. The band recently performed on the Valentine’s Day special of Jimmy Kimmel without their bassist Matt Kean who was replaced by Steven Harrison fro The Fever 333s.
With a chunk of US dates canceled, the focus turns to their scheduled February 19th London (a special show for the War Child charity) date which, as of right now, it is still firmly in the air as to whether it will go ahead.
