Newly signed to Century Media, Havok are tearing it up on the road with Crowbar, Revocation, Fit for an Autopsy and Armed for Apocalypse. Unfortunately Havok’s vocalist and guitarist David Sanchez’ arm suffered some apocalyptic damage while hiking, and the band have been forced to cancel some shows. Here’s what the band had to say about it via their Facebook account:
“Due to injury, we have been forced to cancel a few shows on our current tour with Crowbar, Revocation, Fit for an Autopsy and Armed for Apocalypse. We plan to rejoin the tour in California in early October.
While hiking in Boulder, Colorado, I took a pretty nasty fall and ended up shattering my left wrist. Since I’m currently unable to play guitar, our friend Dan Gargiulo from Revocation has offered his 6-string services and will be laying down the riffage for the rest of our stint in the USA. I will still be doing vocals on the remainder of the upcoming shows and I cannot wait to get back on the road!
I’d like to apologize to anyone that was looking forward to seeing Havok in these coming days. We will definitely make it up to you. In times like these, one must remember the ancient American proverb, ‘Shit happens.’ See you on the road!!
One last thing! Here is some good news for a change. Pete’s mom is making a full recovery from her recent accident and that means Pete Webber will be back behind the kit rejoining the tour in California. We want to thank Marshall Wieczorek from Wretched for stepping in on drums and doing an awesome job on such short notice.”
It’s pretty impressive that they only need five days off to get Gargiulo up to speed, and encouraging that they’ll be continuing on for the remainder of the dates from Thursday on. On the other hand, that must’ve been one hell of a fall. It’s also nice to see that Webber will return to the tour and that his mom is ok. Here are the remaining tour dates:
10/02 San Francisco, CA @ DNA Lounge
10/03 Santa Ana, CA @ Observatory
10/04 Los Angeles, CA @ Los Globos
10/05 Tempe, AZ @ Club Red
10/06 Albuquerque, NM @ Launchpad
