High On Fire has announced that due to a medical emergency with Matt Pike, they must pull out of their previously announced Speed Of The Wizard” co-headlining tour with Municipal Waste. The tour will carry on nonetheless with Toxic Holocaust And Haunt to open as planned. Pike needs emergency surgery to amputate part of one of his toes. The band made a statement. High on Fire is supporting their album from earlier this month, Electric Messiah, via Entertainment One (eOne).
Matt has a medical emergency culminating in the partial amputation of one of his toes. The scheduling of this procedure is immediate and the recovery time will overlap our intended tour with MUNICIPAL WASTE. We will, unfortunately, be unable to participate in this tour but will be back stronger than ever in 2019!”
