10/18/18 UPDATE – Decrepit Birth have been forced to leave the remainder of the tour with Arsis, Internal Bleeding, Pyrexia, Angelmaker, and Within Destruction (CLICK HERE to see dates). The organizers had the following to say of this:
“We have received some sad news today and was just told that Decrepit Birth will not be able to continue on with the tour. Bill’s femur surgery went very well but he needs to get rest and take it easy so his injury heals properly. Send him all the love! He is a tough guy and we love Bill!
The tour will continue on and Arsis will headline the rest of the shows. They have a brand new album dropping on November 2nd via Nuclear Blast / Agonia Records! We hope to see everyone still coming out to the rest of the shows!”
Original Story – Unfortunately, Decrepit Birth vocalist Bill Robinson took the good luck saying “break a leg” a little too far with the band’s performance at the Glass House in Pomona, CA. He did a stage dive, broke his femur, and had surgury done. The band plans to be back on tour asap but will miss a few shows.
Here’s the statement from the band:
“Attention! Bill broke his femur on Saturday while performing at the Glass House in Pomona, California. He was seriously injured and was rushed to the hospital where he is getting surgery done for his leg. Unfortunately we will miss the next 4 or so shows while we wait with him at the hospital. We will catch back up with the tour ASAP and finish this off even if we have to wheel Bill out in a wheelchair on stage. He says whatever it takes! Which is pretty fucking crazy!”

#Repost @instar0r ・・・ Just watched the singer of @decrepitbirth jump of the stage and snap his leg. The paramedics had to come and take him to the ER. His last words before being wheeled away “you fuckers should have caught me” 🤣😂 #metalheads #metalhead #theglasshouse #pamona #techdeath #technicaldeathmetal #decrepitbirth #stagedive #metalshow #blastbeats #extrememetal
