Bring Me The Horizon cancel more shows due to frontman’s injured voice
The show has been postponed to May 29, and all tickets will remain valid. War Child tweeted about the event being postponed and wished Sykes a healthy recovery.
The show was set to take place at The Dome in Tufnell Park in London.
The BRITs Week shows are hosted by War Child, which raises money for children affected by war. All of the money made would be donated to their cause.
In other news“People forget the vocal cords are a muscle, a muscle that can be compromised by not just exertion but the elements/conditions etc.,” Sykes says in a tweet. “Screaming when done correctly is actually less strain on the voice than singing in your top octaves (in fact, if I’m trying to go easy on my voice, I’ll often resort to doing my old style of screaming, it’s literally like putting on an accent) but this is just something that happens sometimes… as much as it sucks!”
To avoid permanent damage, Sykes has to rest his voice for some time.
We wish Sykes a full and easy recovery.
