BMTH drummer Matt Nicholls has broken his arm playing football with Parkway Drive and Architects. All UK shows will go ahead as planned, with Dan Searle from Architects temporarily replacing Matt Nicholls for the remainder of BMTH’s UK shows.
“It were a lovely day so members of BMTH, Parkway Drive and Architects decided to play footy and I made the stupid mistake of going in the net. The ball came to me and I knocked it away with my hands and Winston from Parkway Drive clipped my hand with his foot and there you have it, one broken hand.
I have to see a specialist in Sheffield to see if I need surgery or not but I’m not gonna be picking up drum sticks for about 6 weeks. It was an accident and you know, shit happens but I’ll tell you now, it’s the last time I wear gardening gloves in the net!” – Matt Nicholls earlier today.
BMTH are currently touring the UK on their biggest headline tour to date with support from Architects, Parkway Drive and The Devil Wears Prada, and play Reading/Leeds and Download festivals this summer.
