Black Veil Brides have had to do something that no band likes to do; they’ve had to cancel an upcoming tour stop. The band made the announcement on Monday (Oct. 19) in which they reveal the reason behind the cancellation. Turns out, it’s a little more serious than anyone could have anticipated. The cancellation of the Ventura (Oct. 22) stop of their tour is to allow drummer C.C. Coma (real name Christian Mora) time to let his injured hand get some much-needed rest.
According to the band’s post on Facebook, Coma has been playing shows with a torn ligament in his hand and with the group’s non-stop 2015 touring schedule, the hand has not had time to properly heal or at least get some time off. The band also writes that a doctor had advised them to give Coma a couple of days off, so it can kind of heal. If things go as planned, they will be able to resume the tour for the Santa Ana and Sacramento shows.
Read the band’s complete statement below.
“We are sorry to announce that due to an unforeseen injury we will not be able to perform in Ventura. Our drummer, CC, has been fighting through a torn ligament in his hand which has been made worse by the current tour and travel schedule. We will be returning to Los Angeles for him to see a specialist to heal his hand to the best of his abilities. It has been suggested by the doctor that we give him a few days off before he returns to the stage in Santa Ana. We intend on playing both the Orange County and Sacramento shows to finish off the run, if his injury permits. Again we apologize for the inconvenience and will make up the show at a later date, however at this point we just cannot take the risk of him exasperating an injury that could render him unable to play in the future. Please send your positive thoughts and good vibes his way as he deals with this pain.
– Black Veil Brides”
Like the post states, Black Veil Brides have spent the majority of 2015 on the road in support of their self-titled fourth album which came out in 2014. Here’s to a speedy recovery, C.C.
