HIGH ON FIRE: ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!

Matt – doesn’t-need-a-fucking-introduction – Pike has unfortunately entered rehab.

.

The High On Fire guitarist and vocalist, and former Sleep riff lord, has taken “the necessary steps towards regaining his health”, according to a press release.

.

Seemingly ignoring his legacy of monumentous riffs, substance abuse, and total amplifier destruction, Pike has begun treatment for alcohol rehabilitation.

.

Consequently, High On Fire have been forced to pull out of this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in the US, and touring plans have beeen put on hold “indefinitely”.

,

The band released the following statement: “High on Fire would like to thank everyone involved with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival for the opportunity to be a part of this year’s tour. We regretfully will have to bow out as our friend and bandmate begins his recovery, but [we] very much appreciate having been asked to be a part of this summer’s festival run”.

.

Nothing is true anymore, except for Lana Del Rey.

Well hello there!
