AVENGED SEVENFOLD have announced the cancellation of their upcoming summer tour, as lead singer M. Shadows is under doctor’s orders to rest his damaged vocal cords.
Avenged Sevenfold were scheduled for a summer “End of The World” tour with Prophets of Rage & Three Days Grace, along with appearances at the Impact Festival and Heavy Montreal.
In a letter to fans, Shadows wrote, “After our European tour, I came down with a terrible viral infection that rendered me voiceless. A blood blister has formed on my vocal folds and is preventing them from vibrating properly. Luckily, doctors feel that three months of no singing and voice rest should get my cords back on track.”
He added, “Please know that I’ve exhausted every possible solution trying to get out there and perform for you. It simply can’t happen at the moment. I’m deeply sorry and hope to see you all soon.”
