Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes says voice is ‘fully healed’
Bring Me The Horizon is back as frontman Oli Sykes announces his voice is healed.
Sykes took to Twitter to let fans know he has made a full recovery after the band was forced to cancel several shows due to his health problems.
Bring Me The Horizon had to cancel their final two U.S. tour dates due to Sykes’ ruptured vocal chord. Sykes later took to Twitter to explain his ruptured vocal cord further.
“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!”
Since then, the band has announced a spring tour in the U.S.
