Hellyeah are currently in the midst of a European tour, so it’s a bummer that former Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell broke his foot and will miss the next eight shows, including an appearance at Download Festival.
Vinnie Paul updates the fans via Facebook:
“HELLIONS!! We are sorry to announce Tom broke his foot in 3 places and will not be participating in the rest of the Euro tour but we will carry on with Chris Brady holding down the guitar force. Tom will rejoin us for Mayhem!! Cheers VP”
Hellyeah’s first show back in the states is the Rockstar Mayhem Festival, which is later this month on June 26th, giving Maxwell plenty of time to rest up. Tell that to The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Ben Weinman, who recently broke his finger tip and played a show the same night.
Hellyeah’s recent crowdfunding campaign to raise awareness about domestic violence ended in May, raising $12,193, surpassing their $10,000 goal.
