In an unfortunate turn of events, Born of Osiris have dropped their current tour with GWAR and Battlecross (for more information on this trek, CLICK HERE). This was due to guitarist Lee McKinney having surgery on his foot. The band opted to let their stringsman heal instead of pressing on with half the tour left to go.
Here’s the official statement from the band in regards to this:
Thanks for all the love and support you guys have been sending regarding a speedy recovery. My foot was not only dislocated, it was broken/fractured in multiple spots. Surgery was a success. As soon as I get a hard boot on this foot, even though the doctors aren’t recommending it – I plan on being out there jamming in a wheelchair on stage Dave Ghrol style! Trust me there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.” – Lee McKinney / BOO
We will be off tour until further notice and will be not be attending Knotfest tomorrow. We will be back as soon as Lee is tour ready, playing more tracks off our new record.
