BRING ME THE HORIZON Drummer Forced To Sit Out Remainder Of U.K. Tour

Drummer Matt Nicholls of the British metalcore act BRING ME THE HORIZON broke his arm playing soccer and will be unable to join his bandmates on the remainder of their U.K. tour.

Commented singer Oli Sykes: "So Matt's broken his hand! Fuck! But do not fear! All shows are going ahead with Dan [Searle] of ARCHITECTS taking the role of drumming. Matt, as are we, are all gutted that he can’t be a part of these huge shows, but we're just happy we don't have to cancel! We will see you at the shows!"

BRING ME THE HORIZON's next performance is scheduled for tonight in Birmingham with PARKWAY DRIVE, ARCHITECTS and THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA.

BRING ME THE HORIZON's third album, "There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret", sold 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 17 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD also entered the official chart in the U.K. at position No. 13.
