Yes, it is true. Mumakil, the extraordinary Swiss grind band has been forced to cancel their upcoming tour and postpone the recording of their new album due to unforeseen circumstances. A few hours ago Mumakil posted the following message on their Facebook page:
Unfortunately, we have to cancel everything (recording + tour) here’s the situation:
Last Thursday we started to record drumtracks for our new album. After few hours, Seb suddenly felt a deep pain in his right wrist, affecting the whole arm. He could’nt play any longer and wasn’t able to hold a drumstick.
After a visit to the hospital, the diagnostic is carpal tunnel syndrome. No short term treatment except taking rest, stop drumming and other activities for 2-3 weeks.
This is really painful and impossible for Seb to play.
We really dont want to give up the tour. But we have no choice. We have to give up both recording and tour. Sorry guys.
See you soon.
This sucks, but hopefully after Seb recovers the band will be able to continue recording their new album, which is one that I am highly anticipating. Check out a stream of Behold The Failure below to bide the time until the band can continue recording.
