Bring Me the Horizon’s Oli Sykes Declares: ‘My Voice Is Fully Healed’
Earlier this week, Bring Me the Horizon announced a new batch of spring dates, which seemed to suggest the singer Oli Sykes was doing just fine after recently suffering a ruptured vocal cord. Now comes word directly from Sykes himself that he is "fully healed."
In a new tweet, the vocalist states, "Just been to the voice doctors my voice is fully healed woop woop see u all soon!"
It was just two weeks ago that Bring Me the Horizon had to drop off the final two dates of their "First Love" tour with Thrice and Fever 333. The band made the announcement right after making their late night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
"I'm gutted to announce we have to cancel the remainder of our American tour. I've ruptured my right vocal chord, and I've been told if I don't rest it immediately I'm in serious danger of doing permanent damage," said Sykes at the time. "I've been trying my best to fulfill our commitments as I really hate letting you guys down, not to mention these shows have been literally the most fun ever — but at this point me singing would be the equivalent of a footballer running on a broken leg.. once again I'm so sorry, I hope you all understand."
As stated, Bring Me the Horizon just announced a new batch of shows for late spring, starting off with their appearance at Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, Florida on May 5. Though there are a number of festival dates in the mix, the headline shows for the band will feature support from Scarlxrd. See the scheduled shows here.
