HIGH ON FIRE Pull Out Of Mayhem Fest Due To Singer's Alcoholism

High On Fire (2012) Oakland, CA metal band HIGH ON FIRE has announced that it will be forced to miss this summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival as front man and guitarist Matt Pike enters treatment for alcohol rehabilitation. The award winning power trio (also featuring drummer Des Kensel and bassist Jeff Matz) will put its scheduled touring plans on hold indefinitely as Pike takes the necessary steps towards regaining his health.

"High on Fire would like to thank everyone involved with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival for the opportunity to be a part of this year's tour," said the band in a statement. "We regretfully will have to bow out as our friend and bandmate begins his recovery, but very much appreciate having been asked to be a part of this summer's festival run."

HIGH ON FIRE's new album De Vermis Mysteriis was released on April 3 via eOne Music and debuted at #61 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart in its first week of release. The album's charting position represents the highest of the band's storied 14 year career.
