New Jersey metalheads The Dillinger Escape Plan have postponed their already rescheduled UK dates for next month following an injury to guitarist Ben Weinman.
In an echo, of sorts, of something that happened to similarly successful rockers My Chemical Romance in the recent past, Weinman suffered a injury while filming a video. The guitarist has broken his foot, to quote, "pretty severely".
Says Weinman: "Unfortunately due to a freak accident during our video shoot I managed to break my foot. After two doctors visits it is clear that we will have to postpone our US and European tour until a later date. New dates will be posted soon and we promise to come back bigger and better then ever."
The five-piece, whose new album Ire Works is released on November 12 via Relapse, were due to tour the UK from November 3 onwards - check here for postponed dates.
Information regarding rescheduling of these dates will be available as and when on the band's MySpace site, here.
