BLACK VEIL BRIDES have canceled their October 22 concert in Ventura, California in order to allow drummer Christian “CC” Coma (born Christian Mora) time to recover from a recent hand injury.
Says the band in a statement: “We are sorry to announce that due to an unforeseen injury, we will not be able to perform in Ventura. Our drummer, CC, has been fighting through a torn ligament in his hand which has been made worse by the current tour and travel schedule.
“We will be returning to Los Angeles for him to see a specialist to heal his hand to the best of his abilities. It has been suggested by the doctor that we give him a few days off before he returns to the stage in Santa Ana.
“We intend on playing both the Orange County and Sacramento shows to finish off the run, if his injury permits.
“Again we apologize for the inconvenience and will make up the show at a later date. However, at this point, we just cannot take the risk of him exasperating an injury that could render him unable to play in the future.
“Please send your positive thoughts and good vibes his way as he deals with this pain.”
BLACK VEIL BRIDES will enter the studio in early 2016 to begin work on the follow-up to their 2014 self-titled album.
BLACK VEIL BRIDES released its first-ever concert DVD and Blu-ray, “Alive And Burning”, on July 10. The cover artwork for the set was designed by the band’s longtime friend and previous album cover illustrator Richard Villa.
“Black Veil Brides” was helmed by producer Bob Rock, whose resume includes albums by METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE CULT and many others.
